With quite a few big releases arriving Christmas (or the day after), we had a feeling that a bunch of new trailers were in store. Kicking things off, Focus Features has released their first trailer for the remake of the popular CG-animated short, 9.
When 9 first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world. All humans are gone, and it is only by chance that he discovers a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction. Despite being the neophyte of the group, 9 convinces the others that hiding will do them no good. They must take the offensive if they are to survive, and they must discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. As they’ll soon come to learn, the very future of civilization may depend on them.
What makes this film look awesome, besides all the incredible visuals, is the fact that Focus went with "Welcome Home" by Coheed and Cambria as the trailer's score. I'm going to say it: Genius!
