Focus Features has provided AWN and VFXWorld with three exclusive images of the character "1" from Shane Acker's 9. As the oldest and most crudely designed of the stitchpunk beings, "1," voiced by Christopher Plummer, is constructed of rudimentary tools including simple metal plates and heavy canvas. As the elder, he is the group’s self-declared leader, and strives to bolster his air of authority with decorations such as his staff, cape decorated with a broach, and hat. He is clever and sly, but also domineering, irritable, quick-tempered, and threatened by the new arrival of “9” whose higher intellect leads him to question authority.
Check out the exclusive "1" images at The AWN Showcase.
Focus has already launched an online prequel story on the Facebook page of the 9 scientist. Through the “9 Scientist” Facebook page, readers will be begin their journey into the back-story of the 9 film, while actively participating in the development of the prequel story.
