Default Astro Boy

While going through the Apple's Movie Trailer site, I came across a trailer for the Astro Boy movie which will open on October 23, 2009.

Wow, helen... you really had a head start on this one!

Now that the movie is about to open, advertising & promotion for Astro Boy is in high gear.

From what I've seen, the 2009 version of Astro Boy (the cartoon character) doesn't have the same "feel" as the Astro Boy I remember from the 60's. The 60's Astro Boy was rather sweet & innocent (granted, those were simpler times back then).

The modern Astro Boy seems to be a bit "edgy" and more "street smart".

Guess we'd never see the 2009 Astro Boy on the strawberry-flavored version of Sunstar toothpaste...
(I can't believe we actually persuaded my mom to buy that stuff!)

I'm sure we'll see him on a lot of other merchandise, though...
To be, or musubi... What was da question?

Watched this movie this afternoon at the Ward Theater. This movie has a different feel from the TV series of the 1960's, but to me that didn't matter much, I thought this movie did okay with the action and the superheroing scenes, and the comic relief done with RRF robots wasn't that bad.
