Another teaser trailer of "Astro Boy" has been uncovered by Summit Entertainment. Exposed via Hulu, this sneak peek into the CGI animated feature film has shared even more than the first teaser, giving away more scenes and footage from the movie.
Aside from the teaser trailer, a new promo image from the movie has been released. Debuted by MTV Splash Page, the fresh one-sheet promo still displays a black and blue silhouette of the young robot. The only light seen in the pic comes from the sophisticated machine planted in the place of Astro Boy's heart.
Set in futuristic Metro City, "Astro Boy" tells the story of a young robot with incredible powers. He is created by a brilliant scientist to replace the son he has lost, but when the scientist finds out the robot couldn't mend his grieving heart, he sends Astro Boy away. Alone and rejected, the young robot embarks on a journey in search of acceptance where he experiences betrayal and gets into a netherworld of robot gladiators, before he finally returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the scientist.
An adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's classic manga, the animation movie comes from "Flushed Away" helmer David Bowers. Penned by Timothy Harris, it features the voices of Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Donald Sutherland and Freddie Highmore among many others. Summit Entertainment will distribute this movie in U.S. theaters on October 23.
