Astro Movie Finally hits the UK

That's right, the Astro Boy movie has finally arrived on movie screens in the United Kingdom. I have no idea what took so long, but at least now all you poor, deprived Brits can enjoy this fine film. Show your support for this anime icon as well as Greater Manchester's favorite son, director David Bowers.

Just a reminder to both newcomers and to folks who have already seen the film to share your movie reviews!

So stop reading and go see the movie already! Then come back here and tell everyone what you thought!

In addition to the UK release, Astro Boy has also found its way to other countries, including Venezuela, Costa Rica, and Mexico. Surprisingly, there are still more countries that will be getting the film into the next month, and others that have yet to get a set release date at all at this time. So there is still some money to be made internationally before it's all said and done.

So come on now, rest of the world! It is up to you, now! You've all seen Avatar already, so go give the Astro Boy movie some of the love it deserves!

Hear, hear!

I think the Brits are more willing to give something unusual a chance - especially if it's unusually good - than us Yanks, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they won't miss out on this wonderful little gem of a movie. Hail Brittania!! ;)

The UK is our only hope for a sequel so let's hope they can get the money back.
