Character Posters for Shane Acker’s【9】

9 illustration

昨早的脑袋燃烧37.5度,透过【BaDtaste.it】看到了个人年度最期待观赏的动画片《9》一系列精美的角色海报,惟少了【5】和【6】,延伸搜寻也终究只能遇上其中7位【布偶英雄】。今天退烧了,只是药性仍残存病躯,元气未复;逾10时昏醒,午后逾1时出门看【新家】,返家后再昏睡;近6时于星巴克【解决】订阅文章的当儿,总算在【Teaser-Trailer.com】遇到了身负【指导及领导】重任的最后两号布偶英雄。

9 -【1】to protect us 9 -【2】to inspire us

Christopher Plummer as【1】, the oldest of the dolls, and their self-proclaimed leader. He is clever and sly, but also domineering, irritable, quick-tempered, and slow, if not unwilling, to trust 9.

Martin Landau as【2】, a kind, delicate old inventor. He is fascinated by garbage, and loves to explore the wastelands and look for parts for his inventions. He is not in very good shape, always walking with a cane, and can only see with a lorgnette.

9 -【3】to define us / 【4】to teach us 9 -【5】to guide us

3】and【4】, curious but shy twin dolls. They are unable to speak, using flickering lights to communicate with each other, but when they need to explain things to someone else, their eyes turn into film projectors. They instinctively run and hide at the sight of danger.

John C. Reilly as【5】, a healer, tutor, and skilled mechanic. He is the journeyman of 2, the great engineer and inventor. He is a diligent worker, a meek spirit, and a devoted friend. He is missing his left eye, which he presumably lost in a previous monster attack.

9 -【6】to lead us 9 -【7】to defend us

Crispin Glover as【6】, a wild and impulsive artist. He has visions of the past and future, channeling his visions through drawings to interpret them, which are accurate in predicting events and help solve mysteries that puzzle 9.

Jennifer Connelly as【7】, a female warrior. A rebel and a loner, she is fearless and brave. She is impatient and can be reckless and stubborn, but makes up for it with mobility and grace, caution of her surroundings, and calmness in dangerous situations.

9 -【8】to guard us 9 -【9】to save us

Fred Tatasciore as【8】, a giant, cumbersome brute. He is 1's personal bodyguard and would die for him, though he is crude and mocking towards everyone else. He is strong and fierce, wielding two masterful weapons, but isn't very clever and is easily deceived.

Elijah Wood as【9】, the main character. Good-hearted, thoughtful, and sincere, he is always willing to risk his life to save others. Despite being a newcomer to the group, he displays leadership qualities that can help the others survive. He seeks truth in the history of the world and the dolls, and wishes to know the meaning of life.


海报上的【一偶一标语】已清楚点出【各偶】的使命,而上述原文取自【Wikipedia】的【各偶】性格剖析,或可加强在观片前对【各偶】的辨识度;如想进一步了解更多,可到【FB】拜访9布偶创造者——【科学家】。
