Number 8′s character poster for Shane Acker‘s movie 9 has just debuted. The character, voiced by Fred Tatasciore, is seen armed with a giant kitchen cleaver and half a scissor blade. Although he is not the brightest tool in the shed, he can do some damage with it. Number 8 was created to help the others physically survive the dangerous, post-apocalyptic world for which 9 takes place in.

Acker is the writer and director of the film.  He previously did animated shorts The Hangnail and The Astounding Talents of Mr. Grenade.  The movie also includes voices by Jennifer Connelly, Elijah Wood, and John C. Reilly.

Check out the poster in its entirety below!


This is the only poster, other than the official poster for the movie, to debut to the public. The film is set to be released September 9th of this year. Who knows, maybe they are counting down (we’ve seen the character 9 (Wood) and now we see number 8 (Tatasciore) maybe 6 is next.
