STARRING Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, John C. Reilly, Christopher Plummer
WRITTEN BY Pamela Pettler, Shane Acker
DIRECTED BY Shane Acker

When director Shane Acker first constructed the CG-animated post-apocalyptic world of 9 for his 2005 animated short (which earned him an Oscar nomination), he asked himself, ”What would be a new life-form that emerges out of the ruins of our world?” His answer: a literally ragtag group of sentient creatures made from ”bits and pieces of leftover objects” struggling to discover why they even came into existence in the first place. That may seem like heavy subject matter for a cartoon. But Lord of the Rings veteran Elijah Wood, who voices the titular hero in Acker’s new feature-length movie, thinks it’s high time that animation for adults became popular with American audiences. ”In Japan,” Wood points out, ”they’ve been making movies like this for years.”
