No, not quite Rockman related, but news worthy nonetheless!
"Astro Boy," the character that gave rise to Rockman's conception, is getting his very own theatrical animated adaption in late 2009 (October). Produced by Imagi, the CGI film aims to properly reproduce Osamu Tezuka's brainchild to a whole new generation of fans.
The teaser trailer for the film is set to debut before Madagascar 2 and Walt Disney's Bolt, however, Moviefone has already begun streaming it online. Check out the trailer there or right here!:
"Set in futuristic Metro City, Astro Boy is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist in the image of the son he has lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving man'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 father who had rejected him."
