Check out them butt guns! The new Astro Boy trailer's come a long way since the rough-cut footage we saw at Comic-Con. Summit and Imagi Studios re-introduce Osamu Tezuka's beloved boy robot from his manga and anime series in high-tech gadgetry for 3-D justice. He'll be zooming into theaters Oct. 23.
Toby (Freddie Highmore) definitely looks different with a rounder physique, and they've given him some new friends: a magenta-streaked, tough as bones gal pal, a giant cement mixer and a trashcan dog. Fans of the original series will notice the animators stuck to the essentials though—the aforementioned butt guns, Toby's original costume (which shows up later in the trailer), and the inclusion of main characters Dr. Tenma (Nic Cage) and Dr. Elefun (Bill Nighy). Is it just me, or does Dr. Tenma have an endearing, uncanny resemblance to the real Nic Cage with that goofy hair? Check it out in HD and tell us what you think!
