It's all about stitching at the box-office this weekend. One, is an animated adventure called "9" about the "stitchpunk" creations by director Shane Acker featuring the voices of Elijah Wood, Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau, John C. Reilly, Crispin Glover, and Jennifer Connelly.

The other's such a stitch of a fashion documentary. It's called "The September Issue" and it's from filmmaker R.J. Cutler. He does for fashion what he did for politics in the brilliant "The War Room."
"The September Issue" focuses on Vogue's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour during the production of the magazine's 2007 September Issue -- the holy grail of fashion. Egos clashing, tempers flaring, strike a pose there's nothing to it
