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."

This movie is going to bleeping suck!ReplyDelete
I mean the graphics are terrible!
Astroboy deserves better.
Hmm. I always thought Astro Boy was cheesey and ugly and pathetic. :\ReplyDelete
I'd much rather have a CG movie set in a Rockman universe.
And now, if we ever get one, it will probably just be passed off as an astro boy ripoff by non-fans. (Which it sorta is in a way, but more like a better one. XD)
I love astro boy, but this...UghReplyDelete
Not bad. Not bad at all.ReplyDelete
I think I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
At least they aren't going live-action like a certain movie about dragons and balls...
Look at Doctor and Astro Father... Ugly and I like the animation better <_<ReplyDelete
at least it's better than Dragon Ball movie
Looking forward to this movie. Looks great.ReplyDelete
Oh damn... they killed Astro. ;_;ReplyDelete
To be fair, Astro Boy has had problems with revivals into the modern era. Next year will be the 2nd "movie based on an anime/manga from the 50s/60s", let's hope it does not share Speed Racer's fate.ReplyDelete
Currently, this is the closest to Rockman we will get at the moment.

He doesn't sound like Astro Boy at all.ReplyDelete
It is okay to me. I will watch it but it is not good enough. It would be nice for CG movie of rockman.. I prefer from japan.. not USA version.ReplyDelete
