With Summit Entertainment releasing Twilight to theaters tomorrow I guess we should have known they'd attach one of their own trailers to it. Taking another shot at CG-animation, the studio gives us our first look at the adaptation of Astro Boy.
Astro Boy Trailer
Astro Boy was created by the "god of manga," Japan's Osamu Tezuka, in the early 1950s. The iconic character has since found wide popularity around the world as the hero of three acclaimed animated television series spanning the past four decades, besides being one of the top licensed properties for merchandising.
Set in futuristic Metro City, Imagi Studios' Astro Boy is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist to replace the son he has lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving father'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 man who had rejected him.
