9-movie-poster-Shane-Acker

Not strictly anime I know – but the marketing people think you guys might be interested in seeing this, and I can see why. Shane Acker and Tim Burton’s dark looking CGI movie 9 opens here in the UK on October 28th, and below you can catch the trailer in HD. A post apocalyptic Pinocchio-style tale of sentient rag-dolls, it kind of reminds me of Takashi Nakamura’s (Akira, Nausicaa) A Tree of Palme at first glance. Worth checking out.
