MTV has debuted a two-minute clip from director Shane Acker's weirdly beautiful animated film 9, which you can watch after the jump.
The film is a feature-length expansion of Acker's short film of the same name and is produced by Tim Burton, Timur Bekmambetov and Jim Lemley. The surreal tale takes place in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world in which a band of courageous rag dolls battles for the survival of civilization.
9 features the voices of Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau, Christopher Plummer and John C. Reilly. It opens in theaters on Sept. 9.
