Atom Boy Trailer

Atom Boy Movie
Astro Boy is actually known as Tetsuwan Atomu in Japan, literally Mighty Atom, but so the real name of the robot boy is actually Atom boy.

So here below a gorgeous Japanese teaser trailer of Astro Boy, er I mean Atom Boy:

When it's about electronics and about robot Japan is a pioneer, and that's true too in marketing its product: there no denying that this teaser trailer of Astro Boy is from far the best footage seen so far!
Astro Boy or Atom BoyI'd like to say give command of the international marketing team promoting Astro Boy to the Japanese team: they definitely know how to sale Astro Boy!

Astro Boy Movie Trailer

A new movie trailer of Astro Boy in being shown in theaters:


Meet the boy built for adventure!

Have a blast


This movie by Imagi is definitely not a dark vision of Astro Boy. No doubt left by now. But still I'm impressed by the quality of this Astro Boy movie: the CGI is awesome.

I think that Astro Boy will perform well in theaters but even better later on DVD and Blu Ray: that would be a great gift for kids!

Does not seem Imagi take the bet of developing the darker side of Astroboy: the robot still looks like a starry eyed boy... Well I suppose I am no in the target audience of this Astro Boy movie. Anyway, my kids will enjoy it!

Astro Boy CGI Animated Movie In 2009

Imagi Animation Studios, who made the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, have decided to tackle a new genre by doing Astro Boy, a CGI movie based on the famous manga character created by the god of manga Osamu Tezuka.

The film is directed by David Bowers and Freddy Highmore (from the Spiderwick Chronicles) has been selected for voicing Astro Boy.

The Plot:
"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 fulfill 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 who had rejected him." (Source: Wikipedia)

I wonder if making a new Astro Boy is worth it... Well that is, unless they apply the successful reboot recipe of Christopher Nolan to Astro Boy. I'm inclined to think that's what Imagi is trying when I look to their concept art of Astro Boy:

But i fear they're going to remake the same starry-eyed hero:

Shall see what path they've decided to follow when the first teaser trailer of Astro Boy will be released.
