Our good friends over at Moviefone have just unveiled an exclusive three-and-a-half-minute action-packed clip from the upcoming animated film Astro Boy, which stars the voices of Freddy Highmore, Kristen Bell, Nicolas Cage and Samuel L. Jackson, among others. Based on Osamu Tezuka's iconic anime story, Astro Boy follows a robotic boy who, while on a mission of self-discovery, heads back home to help save what he cares about most from an imminent threat.

In the scene after the jump, watch as Astro Boy does all he can to elude a group of robots hell-bent on capturing the boy to return him to where he came from. Only problem is ... the robots seem to capture everything (and everyone) except Astro Boy. Check it out below ...

Astro Boy hits theaters on October 23.
