Trendhunter Magazine and Clevver TV have recently given the upcoming Astro Boy animated movie some attention. There's nothing really new here but it's cool to see a bit of mainstream coverage of the film months before the real hype machine will likely start rolling.
Trendhunter has this to say about the Astro movie posters.
Blasting off on October 23, 2009, Astroboy (the movie) is coming to a theatre near you.And here is a video from Clevver.
Created in 1952 by Osamu Tezuka, and later becoming a Japanese TV show in 1963, Astroboy is considered by some to be the first anime.
These ambiguous movie posters were a great idea because there are generations of people who are familiar with the character. We all know who he is!
