I never thought I'd say this, but I wish he were more naked...

looks good, I'm not that interested in this movie, but so far so good...I think animation was the right choice for this one too

does look good, shame about the voice casting

Looks good so far. I'm glad they went with CGI. I don't think it would have worked as "live action."

marshmallowyme - There's a list for you kind of people! I jest!

I know nothing of this but being a father of two I sit through a lot animated films, some good, some coma inducing! This looks pretty good.

I always hated Astro Boy...it was just so damn retarded. I do think that the animation looks great and was a wise decision. Probably not going to see this movie...unless someone pays for me lol...maybe not even then

"I cannot imagine anyone else voicing naked emo robot boy other than the brilliant Eugene Levy"

What exactly makes him emo? do you see a my chemical romance badge on his rocket boots that I'm missing? People had black spiky hair before fall out boy and eyeliner made it queer, find a better, more suitable insult or stop being a hater, because its obviously just for the sake of it.

this stuff looks awesome

This movie is seems to be living proof if u take an idea and put it in the right format it can work perfectly, if they try to make this movie serious and live action it would seem corny, but as a cgi it looks very interesting.

Good post Crush.

strike two Kevin...not Levy, and not Cage

Talontd - 3/24/2009, 7:55 PM
oh sorry, am i that guy?
Talontd - 3/24/2009, 7:55 PM
lmao!!!!

Betty and spanky... Imagi (the animation studio) is based in Hong Kong, and although it has some offices in the US, the company's home is Hong Kong. Rumors state that they founded it so there would be asian counterweight to the western animation studios, so although not exactly japanese they are asian.

Now that that's out of the way... this movie looks awesome and seems to capture the feel of Astroboy and Ozamu Tesuka perfectly, hopefully it'll do good at the box office since Imagi needs it (they have one foot in the bankrupt bin and the other one is not far behind).

This is the way dragonball should have been done. I'll go see it.

This movie looks fantastic. I've seen a preview for it and the animation is flawless and vibrant. It's like your favorite candy, but for your eyes instead. I can't wait to see the whole thing, even if Courtney Love is voicing Astro Boy, I don't care. This is one of those movies you go see based solely on the visual experience.

God I love it! Can I have one?!

Keven I don't know how your gessing your voice cast assignment but it's wrong. Yes Cage is voicing a character. No it isn't Astro.

Astro is being voiced by Freddie Highmore. If you want pre-req for Voice-Acting look no further than panteliman(sp) from Golden Compass. He voiced that little spirit creature the whole film.

PS. He's not emo. He's like a cross between Pinocchio, a boy scout, and super boy.

GOOD GIGGITTY GOD THIS IS AMAZING!!! IMAGI IS AND UNTIL PROVEN OTHER WISE WILL EVER BE THE BEST ANIMATION STUDIO EVER!!!! THEY KICKED TOTAL FREAKIN ASS WITH TMNT AND THEY ARE NAILING ASTROBOY PERFECTLY!!!! I WILL DEFINITLY BE THERE OPENING DAY!!!! HEEELLLLL YEAH!!!! TO MAKE SURE THEY STAY IN BUSINESS, I'D EVEN SELL MY BODY ON THE STREETS!!! THAT'S HOW ASTONISHING THEY ARE!!!!!!!!

grew up watching astroboy so i can't wait for this.. and they definitely should have done DBZ this way could have worked a hundred times better, i mean how silly is vegeta's hair gonna be in live action and who are they gonna use? jason schwartzman?

Is it me or does the first pic look like the Ironman
poster.

Hey Keven, the cross between Superbabies and Speed Racer, already happened... it's called Dragonball Evolution, and you are quite right, it sucks. Astroboy on the other hand, is extremely fun.
