ASTRO BOY in theaters Friday

Osamu Tezuka's classic manga and anime icon Astro Boy hits your local cineplex this Friday (Oct. 23) in a big-budget, 3-D animated film from Summit Entertainment. According to Newsday, the film gives the '60s character a topical '09 spin, grappling with "topical issues, cosmic questions and metaphysical disorientation. If anyone still thinks animation is only for children, this first Astro Boy film will happily disabuse them."
