Astro Boy
The original cartoon series from the 1950s has been called the forerunner of the anime style and the character has even been termed the Japanese Mickey Mouse. Now, Astro Boy is getting a modern-day makeover with CG animation and a contemporary feel. It’s the story of a super scientist named Dr. Tenma (Nicolas Cage) who creates an artificial duplicate of the son he lost in a tragic accident. When this robot doesn’t act exactly like Toby, Tenma tries to get rid of him – and the resulting escape and journey into self-discovery turns this boy into a true superhero.

District 13: Ultimatum
This sequel to the action flick District B13 shows us the further deterioration of the violent and racially-charged Parisian ghetto that a pair of martial-artist cops had to deal with before, and now they must team up again to save the lives of its denizens from a corrupt government who just wants to nuke the place.
