Leaked: Astro Boy Movie Images!

Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio
Following the success of comics in the United States; Japanese media mogul Osamu Tezuka created the concept of Astro Boy back in 1952. It's success quickly launched the character onto the big screen, and won the hearts of both Japanese and Americans alike.
Today, Astro Boy is still alive and kicking! In fact, Summit Entertainment is currently working on an "Astro Boy" film. The film company leaked some cool images for us to check out, courtesy of Sci Fi Wire. After checking out these images for myself I had to agree that this motion picture is starting to really peak my interest.
The new Astro Boy film will feature the voice talents of Freddie Highmore, Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy, Eugene Levy, Matt Lucas and Donald Sutherland; and is written by Timothy Harris and directed by David Bowers.

Seeing this images really got me excited. The animation is smooth and clean, in my opinion looks pretty cool. What do you guys think? Are you looking forward to an Astro Boy film? Have you ever heard of the character or read any of the comics?

Him wearing the shirt ruins it for me. And you just know they're butchering the theme song.

Looks more like a videogame than a movie.

Astroboy is a very cute character in appearance anyway i must say it'll work cuz hes not used alot which will give him an edge in popularity for fans old and soon to be new

and it always appealed to me yet i never liked the black and white version of the show

Looks cool. Glad he is actually wearing clothes instead of just flying around in underwear and boots

Watching that doesn't make you want to burn your tv and jump out of a window and slit your throat on the way down?
