Astro Boy to open on October 23 in N. America; Miracle Train already streaming

The Collider.com website is streaming 11 clips from David Bowers and IMAGI's computer-animated film adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy manga. The film will open in Japan this Saturday, and will open throughout North America on October 23. The Chicago International Film Festival will be hosting an advance screening of the film on October 18.

The official website for the Miracle Train - Ōedo-sen e Yōkoso television anime series has begun streaming a 46-second television commercial on Monday. The Miracle Train project anthropomorphizes several heavily travelled train stations in Tokyo into young handsome male characters. In particular, the Miracle Train - Ōedo-sen e Yōkoso television series will feature characters inspired by the stops on the Ōedo subway line. The Crunchyroll website has already started simulcasting the first episode on Sunday.
