Summit Entertainment has finally come up with a full trailer for its upcoming "Astro Boy (Movie)". Found at MSN, the two-minute more sneak peek provides a look at the construction of Astro Boy, the first meeting between the robot boy and Cora, and the danger Astro has to face when President Stone lays his eyes on him. It also gives a taste of the comedic touch given to the CGI animated feature.
Set in futuristic Metro City, "Astro Boy" tells the story of a young robot with incredible powers. He is created by a brilliant scientist to replace the son he has lost, but when the scientist finds out the robot couldn't mend his grieving heart, he sends Astro Boy away. Alone and rejected, the young robot embarks on a journey in search of acceptance where he experiences betrayal and gets into a netherworld of robot gladiators, before he finally returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the scientist.
An adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's classic manga, the animation movie comes from "Flushed Away" helmer David Bowers. Penned by Timothy Harris, it features the voice of Freddie Highmore as the titular character Astro Boy, Nicolas Cage as Dr. Tenma, Donald Sutherland as President Stone and Kristen Bell as Cora among many others. It will be distributed in U.S. theaters on October 23.
