Freddie Highmore poses with his alter ego, Astro Boy, at the premiere of the movie last night in Los Angeles, California.

JSYK caught up with Freddie yesterday a few hours before he hit the red carpet (he arrived in L.A. on Saturday night) and got the scoop on the movie. Here's what he had to say about why it's not just for kids.

"It's not just the usual animation where the hero saves the world, there are a lot of deeper issues that perhaps people wouldn't be expecting."

Check back on Thursday for the rest of our interview with Freddie including more about Astro Boy, which actors he'd like to work with next and those pesky Dakota Fanning rumors!
