12 August 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

As well as bringing us New Moon, E1 Films are also showing healthy slices of two other exciting new releases at Movie-Con II this weekend at the BFI.

First up, there will be a full seven minutes of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's new film MicMacs, which isn't out until January 2010. It stars Dany Boon as a man with a bullet lodged in his head, who devises an intricate plan to take down two huge weapons manufacturers who he blames for his misfortunes.

Then there's three new scenes from Astro Boy, the story of the hugely popular Japanese robot-boy. You'll get a chance to see some of the all-star voice cast in action, including Freddie Highmore, Kristen Bell, Nicolas Cage, Charlize Theron, Bill Nighy, Samuel L. Jackson and Donald Sutherland.

There are more announcements still to come, so don't go far.
