Summit and Imagi studios have announced that Astro Boy is going to be rocketing into theaters on October 23, 2009. And you can bet there's going to be some sweet toys lined up to proceed the release date. According to CEO of Summit Rob Friedman “We have lined up some key marketing partners for the film and our October date allows us to put the film out at the right time enabling our partners to reach their targeted audiences with on-going marketing programs tied to the film.” One pair of red rocket boots please.
