New Yorkers, we want you to get into an early screening of 9! The screening will be held on Tuesday, September 8th at 9:00 pm at a Manhattan theater.

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. The voice cast of “9” includes Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Christopher Plummer, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau, and Fred Tatasciore.

We’ve got 10 pairs of tickets to give away, and these are GUARANTEED SEATS. That’s right, folks, no waiting in line for fine, good-looking individuals with such great taste in movie websites as yourselves- you’ll be sitting in the reserved section with me. Consider it penance for anyone who waited on line for previous screenings and didn’t make it in.

If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also get a copy of a 9 art book that is absolutely gorgeous. Check out some pics-
