ANIMATED fantasy epic 9 (12A) is director Shane Acker's feature-length expansion of his Academy Award-nominated 2004 short film.

In the 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 the world fell to pieces, a mission began to salvage the legacy of civilisation - 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.

Number 9 (voiced by Elijah Wood), emerges and displays leadership qualities that may help them survive and possibly even thrive.
