The City of Ember is an upcoming sci fi movie based on the novel of the same name written by Jeanne Duprau. The film is directed by Gil Kenan and is starring Bill Murray and Saoirse Ronan. City of Ember should be released on October 10, 2008.

Here below the first official trailer of the City of Ember:

Now, time is up...
And they must unlock the secret to get out!

This October,
the only way to survive is to escape!

City of Ember
The plot:
For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights. The story follows two children, Lina Mayfleet (Saoirse Ronan) and Doon Harrow (Harry Treadaway) living in this city.
Unfortunately Ember's once powerful generator is failing ... and the great lamps that illuminate the city are starting to flicker.
The two children decide then to search for clues that will unlock ancient mysteries about the city and save the people of Ember before it's too late.

I'm quite excited by the plot of the movie. I love science fiction and this movie introduces a novel I haven't heard about before. Besides the movie itself looks quite good. I'll be happy to discover the underground City of Ember in October!
