New ‘Astro Boy’ Images Offer First Look At Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland & Bill Nighy Characters

Footage (and new casting announcements) from “Astro Boy” wowed audiences during Comic-Con, and now Summit Entertainment has released six new images from the CGI adaptation of Osamu Tezuka’s massively popular manga.

The film tells the story of a scientist, Dr. Tenma (voiced by Nicolas Cage) who replaces his lost son with a powerful robot (Freddie Highmore), who must then come to terms with his own identity as a child, a robot and, most importantly, a hero. Along with Cage, actors Donald Sutherland and Bill Nighy also voiced characters in the film, and today we have our first look at all of their characters in the new images — as well as a few more shots from the much-anticipated film.

Below we have a look at Dr. Tenma (Cage) and Dr. Elefun (Nighy), as well as President Stone (Sutherland).

Summit’s also updated the official “Astro Boy” website with an interactive timeline of the character’s long history. “Astro Boy” hits theaters October 23.
