"9" Movie Prize Pack

In anticipation of the release of the new movie 9, produced by Tim Burton, I have been given the opportunity to offer some "9" prize packs. Movie Synopsis An action-packed adventure, director Shane Acker’s animated fantasy epic 9 is the feature-length expansion of his Academy Award-nominated 2004 short film of the same name. The screenplay for the feature is by Pamela Pettler (Monster House); directors Tim Burton (Beetlejuice) and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) are among the feature version’s producers. The time is the too-near future. Powered and enabled by the invention known as the Great Machine, the world’s machines have turned on mankind and sparked social unrest, decimating the human population before being largely shut down. But as our world fell to pieces, a mission began to salvage the legacy of civilization; a group of small creations was given the spark of life by a scientist in the final days of humanity, and they continue to exist post-apocalypse. Another of their own, #9 (voiced by Elijah Wood), emerges and displays leadership qualities that may help them survive and possibly even thrive. The conflicted but resilient tribe already includes #1 (Christopher Plummer), a domineering war veteran and the group’s longtime leader; #2 (Martin Landau), a kindly but now-frail inventor; #3 and #4, scholarly twins who communicate nonverbally and mostly with each other; #5 (John C. Reilly), a stalwart and nurturing engineer; #6 (Crispin Glover), an erratic artist beset by visions; #7 (Jennifer Connelly), a brave and self-sufficient warrior; and #8 (Fred Tatasciore), the none-too-bright muscle and enforcer for #1. With their group so few, these “stitchpunk” creations must summon individual strengths well beyond their own proportions in order to outwit and fight against still-functioning machines, one of which is a marauding mechanized beast. In the darkness just before the dawn, #9 rallies everyone of his number to band together. While showcasing a stunning “steampunk”-styled visual brilliance, 9 dynamically explores the will to live, the power of community, and how one soul can change the world. Watch the trailer and other clips HERE. To get you revved-up for the release of "9" I have 5 prize packs to offer, including: · Official Soundtrack · Book (covering the "backstory" of "9"-- similar to version distributed at Comic-Con) · Mini-Poster · Trading Cards (features all characters) If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, just leave your information in the form below (all information will be discarded after contest and will not be used for any other purpose than this contest-- absolute confidentiality guaranteed) and I will pick 5 winners by Tuesday September 8th-- just in time for the movie. This contest is open in the U.S. only and P.O. Boxes will not be accepted. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Good luck! ** Contest Closed **

My name is 9a (Nina) and I can't wait to see '9' in it's full length version. So brave and touching. In my search to find something remarkable to do on the date; 9/9/9, I found the Los Angeles Times article on '9' yesterday (Labor Day) and saw that it would open on such an appropriate date and I had my answer. I'll be there!
