Two movies in 2009 both called “nine”: 9 and Nine. We didn’t have a something like this in 2008, did we? Anyhow, the two films couldn’t be further apart. While 9 is a sci-fi futuristic animation, Nine is a musical based on the Broadway production NINE, which was inspired by Federico Fellini‘s autobiographical film 8½.
Here’s the description from Apple.com:
“NINE” is a vibrant and provocative musical that follows the life of world famous film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) as he reaches a creative and personal crisis of epic proportion, while balancing the numerous women in his life including his wife (Marion Cotillard), his mistress (Penelope Cruz), his film star muse (Nicole Kidman), his confidant and costume designer (Judi Dench), an American fashion journalist (Kate Hudson), the whore from his youth (Fergie) and his mother (Sophia Loren). The film is directed by Rob Marshall (CHICAGO). The original 1982 Broadway production of “NINE,” with music and lyrics by Maury Yeston, won five Tony Awards including Best Musical.
And of course the trailer:

I really like how this looks like, but I’m not too sure I’ll actually like the end product. It’s from the same director as Chicago, and I didn’t exactly like that (although that might be cause I don’t like the music).
Nine – Release Date: 25 November 2009 (USA, UK)
