Okay...not much to go on here but so far, so good. Astro Boy, the 60's era manga series about a crime-fighting, nuclear-powered, robot kid is set to hit theaters this fall.

Obviously, the short glimpse of the movie featured here raises a few questions. Will it be better than Speed Racer? Will it retain the psychological, nuclear-age vibe of the original series? Will Nicolas Cage be less annoying voice-only? These questions and more should be answered in October. [Boing Boing Gadgets]
