Over at Cinematical they’ve premiered the final theatrical poster for the upcoming CG animated film, Astro Boy. The film’s cast features Kristen Bell, Bill Nighy, Nicolas Cage, and Freddie Highmore as the title character. Not too long ago we debuted the latest trailer for the film, which looked amazing, so now it’s time for the newest poster. Check it out below.


“Based on the classic Japanese manga, Astro Boy follows a young robot with big-time super powers who ventures off on a journey in search of acceptance when he’s doesn’t quite meet the replacement son expectations of the scientist who created him. And it’s on this journey that Astro Boy faces his toughest challenge yet: help save earth from an alien race threatening the planet.”

Astro Boy hits theaters on October 23, 2009, and is directed by David Bowers.
