Astro Boy's huge comeback

The 3-D film "Astro Boy" will open in North American and Chinese theaters on October 23, 2009.

Japan's popular cartoon character, Astro Boy, is set to return to the limelight as gloriously as the Transformers did months ago.

"Astro Boy" will hit theaters this Friday in North America and China. The computer-animated 3-D film about the adventures of a robot boy was created in the 1950s by the late Japanese artist Osamu Tezuka and has influenced generations of anime fans worldwide.

The success of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", which took world cinemas by storm after opening in June, assures distributors that icons such as the Transformers and Astro Boy, which conjure up childhood memories, have huge profit potentials.

In the U.S., the quantity of "Astro Boy" prints is close to that of previous box-office leaders "Up" and "Ice Age 3", according to a marketing representative from the Hong Kong-based animation studio Imagi, a co-producer of the US-China-Japan film.

Chinese distributors are also expecting a lucrative Astro Boy. The film's domestic prints have reached 1,200, almost the same as that of "The Founding of a Republic", which recently became the most profitable Chinese-made film ever.
