ASTROBOY is based on the highly successful Japanese franchise of the same name by Osamu Tezuka, which is perhaps one of the most popular classic anime creations ever made. Set in futuristic Metro City, Astro Boy is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist in the image of the son he has lost. Unable to fullfill the grieving man's expectations, our hero embarks on a journey in search of acceptance, experiencing betrayal and a netherworld of robot gladiators, before he returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the father (voiced by Nicolas Cage) who had rejected him.
ASTROBOY is scheduled for international release on OCTOBER 23, 2009
