Generally speaking I'm not much of a Tim Burton fan. I liked Nightmare when it was released (considering I was a kid at the time), and I have respect for it these days even if I don't really like it. I had no interest in Corpse Bride or Sweeny...but this...looks....amazing.

I love Tim Burton - even if this movie bombs, its sound track sounds fantastic.

Neat.

This looks ... odd.

I'm not sure what to think of it.

I have always blown hot and cold on Mr. Burton.  Like the first Batman film; hated the others (until the new crop); mostly like Edward Scissorhands; loved Nightmare; so-so Corpse Bride; loathed Sleepy Hollow, etc., etc.  And this one ... I just don't know what to make of it beyond broad imagery.

I'll wait and see.

Not directed by him, but produced by. Looks like it's based on a short film(and will be directed by the same person who made it), which i'm gonna check out sometime soon

And yeah, it does look really really cool.

Nice, reminds me of a disney cartoon where animals were the only survivors after WW1 and they built a city out of dead soldier's helmets. (tried to find it on you tube but no luck)

I was reffering to his more recent and..."popular" stuff, amongst certain circles. Batmans an awesome part of my childhood naturally, I wasn't a huge fan of Edward Scissorhands but I really liked Sleepy Hollow. Cheesy

Not directed by him, but produced by.

I think that is an important difference and what is drawing me to it. It doesn't really look that "burton esq" though I'm sure it will have wee touches of his influence, it's directed by the who directed Wanted, and I'm one of the people who really enjoyed that. Smiley

I mean he worked as producer on Mars Attacks, and there is nothing not to like about that film, I mean jack black gets killed off for starters. Grin

While this is certainly a dystopian adventure it doesn't look "grim dark" enough to attract the "emos" and such who have begun fawning over Burtons works over the last few years. Kinda seems like classic fantasy with the band of adventurers, and I'm most certainly a fan of that in any setting.

I remember stumbling across the animation short a while ago and thought it was pretty darn awesome.
Really excited to see it as a feature length film.

Timur Bekmambetov is a weirdo. Have any of you guys seen his Nightwatch/Daywatch movies?

They are great, but really hard to follow. Teaming up with Burton seems like a pretty cool idea actually. Trailer looks fantastic too.

This cartoon is quite old, 1930s maybe ?

As a fan of the books I have to say that Nightwatch was a really good movie, Daywatch had some cool bits but was rather a mess and I'm really not sure why, I can only assume outside pressure from Hollywood wanting to do Twilightwatch.

Anyway yes, with such creative people as the producers, and going by the short of 9 a very tallented director too this is the first film in some time I've had really high hopes for.

The most I've been able to find on this: http://stealthfiction.com/tim-burtons-9-movie-trailer-news/

Seems a great cast of voices. There's 1(Guy /w Hat and Staff), 2(Wee Fellow in Harness), 5(One-Eye), 6(Stripes), 7(Girl) and of course 9. I don't know who the big fellow is, the warrior with the mask.

I've been a fan of tim burton for as long as I can remember. Love most of his stuff a lot! this looks interesting. On one hand it looks really really good but...It doesn't really have that tim burton feel, it doesn't seams quite, dark enough? Maybe its the characters or the fact that is CG'ed. I dont know. I'll probably go see it but I'm actually looking more forward to this...

Moar? As in, not lez? Hmmm  Undecided


Yes, I'd like to see more...erumpf, excuse me, I mean moar. So far, its visually intriguing but I have long since stopped being able to get excited about a movie's possibility for good entertainment simply from what it looks like. There have been far too many movies that were visual carnivals yet, where bad movies in that they didn't tell a good story or have compelling characters, or both. Graphics alone do not make a good movie.
I find Tim Burton to be hit and miss... some things great, some things not, but always a different visual style. He likes to take huge numbers of polaroids when traveling, these become little bits and pieces of story boards and visual ideas for his projects, and I mean he photographs all kinds of stuff... doorknobs, houses, fence posts, graveyards, he loves graveyards... mind you this was years back, lugging around these black plastic garbage bags full of polaroids. I expect he's gone to digital photos now. Times move on.
