I can tell ya that I’m very excited for this flick and know it will deliver. These are the types of cg films that are needed in theaters today. The market today is crowed with to many animal friendly adventures. Although some are good, it would be nice to see some different types of cg films more often.

Set in futuristic Metro City, Imagi Studios’ “Astro Boy” is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist to replace the son he has lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving father’s expectations, our hero embarks on a journey in search of acceptance, experiencing betrayal and a netherworld of robot gladiators, before he returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the man who had rejected him.
