Shane Acker's 9 isn't a kids' movie. The machines-gone-rogue actually wipe out humanity altogether. Check out the evil mugs behind the operation, and witness the carnage in a gallery from 9's tie-in book. And win free books and movie tickets.

Bloody stuff no? Corpses, violence and confused ragdolls are a formula for greatness.

This is the second chance to win the special-edition collector's 9 movie books — only 999 were created.


Each book is encased in a uniquely numbered burlap bag, featuring a special forward by Ray Kurzweil, behind-the-scenes art, an extensive collection of stills from the film, commentary from director Shane Acker and producers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov, and a DVD of the original short film by Shane Acker which inspired the full-length feature.

We're giving away three copies so email us your name and address at Winners will be chosen at random and alerted via email, next week. You have 24 hours to get your email in, or you'll have to wait for the next and final drawing.

And if you live in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Chicago or Denver text to win a pass (good for two) to see a preview screening of 9 on 9-8-09 at 9:09 PM.
