New 'Astro Boy' Images Hit The 'Net

Astro BoySummit Entertainment has released a pair of new images from "Astro Boy," the CGI-animated film based on the popular anime/manga character. The new images feature Astro Boy himself showing off his twin hand cannons, as well as a crowd facing off against a massive robot that -- if I'm going to venture a guess -- doesn't exactly have their best interests in mind.

"Astro Boy" stars Freddie Highmore as the voice of the title character, and he's joined by an all-star cast that includes Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Matt Lucas, and many more notables.
