Whoa, where did this come from? I’d not heard a single thing about Tim Burton’s upcoming movie till John Scalzi blogged about it in his AMC SF column this morning. I guess this says more about me than it does this cruel, cruel world, but still–hot diggity damn, this film looks incredible. Scalzi describes it as “Toy Story meets Mad Max” and that about hits the nail on the head. Click on over, watch the preview, and then join me in trying to decide which movie to be most excited about for 2009: Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, or Burton/Bekmambetov’s 9.

Either way, Focus Features continues to blow me away with the content they keep serving up.
