9 Produced by Tim Burton

Last Saturday, I caught the trailer for a new film from producer Tim Burton (who is genius!) 9 and it looks quite interesting to me. It looks spendidly apocalyptic and sci fi, mixed with a bit of steampunk with the rag doll/robot beings who innherit the Earth.
Coming 09-09-09!

Interesting facts about the number 9:

- In Chemistry, 9 means pure.

- The number 9 is revered in Hinduism and considered a complete, perfected and divine number because it represents the end of a cycle in the decimal system.

- Important Buddhist rituals usually involve nine monks.

- In the Christian angelic hierarchy there are 9 choirs of angels.

- Nine is strongly associated with the Chinese dragon, a symbol of magic and power. There are nine forms of the dragon, it is described in terms of nine attributes, and it has nine children.

- Nine justices sit on the United States Supreme Court.

- There are nine circles of Hell in Dante's Divine Comedy.

- Nine Unknown Men are, in occult legend, the custodians of the sciences of the world since ancient times.

- In Middle Earth, there are nine rings of power given to men, and consequently, nine ringwraiths.

- The nine muses in Greek mythology are Calliope (epic poetry), Clio (history), Erato (erotic poetry), Euterpe (lyric poetry), Melpomene (tragedy), Polyhymnia (song), Terpsichore (dance), Thalia (comedy), and Urania (astronomy).
