Oh good. I like Tim Burton, and I'm glad he didn't continue making shit movies like Sweeney Todd.
I am so happy to finally be back home

Intrigued!
 
 
“You tell yourself to just
enjoy the process,” he added. “That whether you succeed or fail, win or
lose, it will be fine. You pretend to be Zen. You adopt detachment, and
ironic humor, while secretly praying for a miracle.”

Hm….. older style Tim Burton, stop-motion (probably cg) animation, Crispin Glover instead of Johnny Depp. Might be worth looking forward to. :) Most of his movies the last 15 years have been stinkers though, excepting Big Fish. I can't believe he's still riding on the success of Beetlejuice and Nightmare before Christmas. I guess most people just get attached in a big way to a couple of his movies and genially forgive the others.

Let's just hope there isn't actually any heavy metal orchestra in the actual movie though.

That's “Welcome Home” by Coheed and Cambria. It's just another metal-emo song that got popular after they put it in Rock Band, and is now being used by Burton to pull in any thirteen-year-olds who want to be edgy like their friends. They might play it in the credits, or not include it at all like they did with the Rammstein song in the Hellboy 2 trailer.
I am so happy to finally be back home

Tim Burton's producing it, Shane Ackner's directing. Though it definitely looks different!

What's this then, an actual post apocalyptical story that looks surprisingly interesting and in a style i like.

Hell, they had me at post apocalyptical. Hopefully they'll keep their messy dubbing far away so I can see this au naturel when it comes to my part of the worl some months later.
Because I may as well show a bit of pride. ^___^

I was going to point this out, but I'll quote you instead.

It looks trouser soilingly awesome, I can't wait. I must invent a time machine NOW.

Meh, it'll end with 9 having defeated all the bad shit, and being alone on post-apocalyptic Earth.

I'll still go watch it, but I'm willing to put 50$ down that it'll end that way.

It's so odd. I've watched this trailer so many times now and… I don't know there's just something about those creatures that I can't get enough off. They look epic and cute at the same time. They did a good job designing them.
Those were my two cents.

Just found out something interesting…

Don't know if you guys knew it but Shane Ackner, the guy behind 9, made this film already in 2005. It was only a short film, 10 minutes long. It was nominated for an Oscar but sadly didn't win.

Here's the short film for anyone interested.


It's seems like notlikelytocare was right with his prediction. The question remains, will the feature film simply be a stretched version of the short film or will they fiddle with the storyline.
Those were my two cents.

You forgot ‘Little Big Planet’

They look like Sackboys, almost!
Even though I realize the short film came out in 2005 and the earliest we heard of LBP was in 2007. :)

It fits the mood of the trailer though. I am anxious for this to come out. I was never a fan of Tim Burton, but this looks like a unique CG film.

My husband also thinks they look like Sackboys. …Sackboys on crack, maybe. ;)

@Product Placement: From what I understand, Shane Acker wrote & directed both the short version in 2005 and the full-length feature film in 2009. Tim Burton is simply the producer–he supplies the money. I'm thinking maybe Mr. Burton was a big fan of the 2005 short film and proposed to Mr. Acker that they work together to make it a full-length feature. …At least that's the scenario I am playing in my head. ;)

The short film kind of reminds me of WALL-E for some reason. Maybe because they have the same eyes, are looking around in a junkyard, and it's all pantomime.

Umm.. Thanks.. but I already figured that out. I never mentioned Tim Burton. The other guys did.

I do agree with the WALL-E thing. They also don't talk in the short film which is another thing shared characteristic. I wonder if WALL-E was somehow inspired by this film.

Usually the Hollywood spurts out twins every once in a while. It's like one guy comes up with an idea and someone else copies it almost entirely. Bugs Life / Ants. Deep Impact / Armageddon. Independence Day / Mars Attack(sounds like a stretch maybe but they admitted that they made Mars Attack because of how successful ID4 was). I also claim that the Lord of the Rings and the Harry potter films qualify as twins. I mean come on. Peter Jackson starts filming a movie based on a popular fantasy book series and when the hype around those films is at its peak, Warner bros announce that they will make their own movie series based on a popular fantasy book series? Coincidence?
Those were my two cents.

Producers can often have a big impact on movies. Technically they only provide the money, but depending on the producer and the project they might have a huge influence. Money often comes with strings attached, like ‘you have to do things the way I want.’ The Orphanage was only produced by Guillermo del Toro, but the movie very much felt like a del Toro movie. Someone is not going to produce a movie they think will make them look bad, which gives them an incentive to get involved in its making.

Silent movies were around a long time before a short film named Nine. The people at Pixar are incredibly good storytellers, I think saying ‘they got the idea from Nine’ would be doing them a huge disservice. :) Pixar movies ususally take 5 years to make anyway, so they probably started before Nine ever came out.

It's well-known that Hollywood does things in twos, they've been doing that since Hollywood was around. It's all about the competition. Word gets around in the development stages that one company is doing a movie about X, so a competing company makes a similar film.

I don't think the Lord of the Rings/Harry Potter thing was a case of that, though. I think Warner Brothers just wanted to capitalize on the HP craze before the series was finished. It was more or less coincidence that they came out after the LotR movies (which people have been trying to make for decades). Harry Potter movies would have come out whether LotR existed or not.

However, I think the success of the Harry Potter movies DID mean a big push for Narnia and Golden Compass.

It's not that it was silent. It's because it's a all robot cast in a post-apocalyptic environment that I said it. While on the subject I would like to say that I did not mean any disrespect to Pixar by making this comment. All stories are in some way or another inspired on other stories or life experience.

Haha, I doubt they were wounded :)

Robots in a post-apocalypse world is a pretty fun genre though.

Wow… that short film felt so dark. I thought that it might be another kids film from the movie trailer, but I'm not so sure anymore.

It reminds me of the Tool music videos, with the strange, slightly creepy puppets and that rabbit/cat skull robot.
