Movies you need to see right now: 9

I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this film for months.  I know what I'll be doing tonight ... okay, I'll be writing the final Season 4 Supernatural recap for Tubular, but still.

No reason you can't run, don't walk, to see it.  

9 is the story of little straw men fighting mechanical monsters in a post apocalyptic world.
When 9 (Elijah Wood) 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.
Produced by Tim Burton, this movie looks seriously awesome.

This is the original 11-minute short, written and directed by Shane Acker.
