“I got machine guns. In my butt.” These are the last words of the latest “Astro Boy” trailer, and the lines manage to stand out from other more groan-worthy gags. In the film, the big, bad military schemes to use Astro Boy as an instrument of war. Heavy on curves and light on textures, the film’s graphic style is closer to “The Incredibles” than the ancient anime on which the film is based. Hopefully this adaptation will fare better than the rainbow-vomit train wreck of last year’s “Speed Racer.”
