This movie takes me back to my childhood. I remember, whenever I hear it's theme song I'd run fast and watch this immediately. I've seen the trailer of this movie and I am really fascinated by the 3D Graphics, hope the story is good too. By the way, the cast is pretty cool, they even put Nicolas Cage's voice in here. They even added a touch of anime/manga style characters.
This is really something to look forward to this October. Hope they release an early R5 version. This will look great in my 32 inch LCD TV.
I can't wait to see this movie. Here is a picture of what Astro Boy used to look like.
