Astro Boy Teaser Trailer

Hey Gang! So we showed you a little promo poster that popped up online yesterday, but today we have a second teaser trailer to show you! This second trailer has a ton of new footage in it and the animation looks much more polished. I am pretty excited for this one. I just hope everyone else starts to get pumped up as well. I think the kids will love it.

A thrilling tale of a true hero, Astro Boy is an all-new, feature film full of action, adventure, humor and heart. It will be brought to life on the big screen in breathtaking CGI animation on October 23rd, 2009.

Set in futuristic Metro City, Astro Boy is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist named Tenma (Nicolas Cage). Powered by positive “blue” energy, Astro Boy (Freddie Highmore) is endowed with super strength, x-ray vision, unbelievable speed and the ability to fly.

Embarking on a journey in search of acceptance, Astro Boy encounters many other colorful characters along the way. Through his adventures, he learns the joys and emotions of being human, and gains the strength to embrace his destiny. Ultimately learning his friends and family are in danger, Astro Boy marshals his awesome super powers and returns to Metro City in a valiant effort to save everything he cares about and to understand what it takes to be a hero.

Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.

Astro Boy is directed by ex-Disney animator David Bowers, of Flushed Away previously, with a screenplay written by Timothy Harris who also wrote Brewster's Millions, Kindergarten Cop, and Space Jam. Imagi Animation is developing the film. They are the studio behind TMNT last year.
