Astro Boy is rocket-booting its way toward an October release and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve been searching for an awesome robot fix since The Iron Giant and The Day The Earth Stood Still just didn’t cut muster. So I say hurry up October! Anyhow, we’ve got 6 sweet-looking new stills that offer first looks at a few of the film’s characters including Dr. Tenma, President Stone, and Dr. Elefun (voiced by Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, and Bill Nighy respectively). The official site also offers an interactive timeline which traces Astro Boy‘s 60 year history. Check out the pics after the jump, including one of Astro Boy enjoying the android version of a golden shower.
