2009 Movies

Two posts in one day? Gee, I must have been bored!

I've been trawling through and downloading some of the new movie trailers at Apple this afternoon and discovered that Astroboy (the original Gay Asian Marching Boy) has a full-length feature film coming out next year! Check out the short teaser here.

Sadly, it's not old school animation but Pixar-ish CGI animation. Dr Tenma, the scientist that creates Astroboy (who was called Dr Elephant in English-dubbed version of the 80s television series) is being voiced by *urgh* Nic Cage. Other characters are voiced by Kristen Bell, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy, Eugene Levy, Matt Lucas and Donald Sutherland.

Also, Ciao and Were the World Mine (a gay high school musical!) are a couple of queer films that look quite promising.
