Astro Boy is a young robot with incredible powers that was created by a brilliant scientist in the image of a son that he had lost. Unable to fulfill his creator's expectations, Astro embarked on a journey in search of acceptance, experiencing betrayal, and a netherworld of robot gladiators, before returning to save Metro City and reconcile with the father who rejected him.
Astro Boy is a 2009 computer-animated superhero film loosely based on the manga series of the same name by the Japanese writer and illustrator Osamu Tezuka. Produced by the Hong Kong-based company Imagi Animation Studios, it was directed by David Bowers, who co-wrote the screenplay with Timothy Hyde Harris. The film stars Freddie Highmore, Kristen Bell, Nicolas Cage, Bill Nighy, Matt Lucas, Eugene Levy, Nathan Lane, Samuel L. Jackson, Charlize Theron, and Donald Sutherland.The film was first released in Hong Kong on October 8, 2009, and in the United States on October 23, 2009. It received generally mixed reviews from film critics and was a box office bomb, earning $42 million worldwide against its $65 million budget. As a result of the film's financial failure, Imagi shut down on February 5, 2010, and Astro Boy became the last film produced by the studio.
