Astro Boy, the classic story of a friendly nuclear-powered robot boy created by legendary Japanese manga artist Osamu Tezuka, is being released as a 3D CG Hollywood film. It hits theaters in October, with voices by people like Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, and Kristen Bell. I'm excited to watch it, and I hope they don't screw it up like they did Speed Racer. The original Japanese intro sequence from the '60s is below.
