Alita: Battle Angel Trailer: Cyborgs, Scientists, Mahershala Ali in Sunglasses

First 'Alita: Battle Angel' Trailer Reveals Robert Rodriguez's Crazy Sci-Fi Adaptation

20th Century Fox has debuted the official trailer for Alita: Battle Angel from filmmakers James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez and based on the manga by Yukito Kishiro.

Alita: Battle Angel is set in a post-apocalyptic world in the 26th century, where society endures a technological dark age after a devastating war.

My biggest issue with most of the films made by Robert Rodriguez is that he has a poor cinematic take on fight scenes, and the fight scenes were a fairly prominent part of the original OVA. While the song choice leaves something to be desired, due to its eternal assocaition with the animal cruelty commerical, there is an uncanny blend of CG and live-action that has our interests peaked.




Alita: Battle Angel is scheduled for a July 20, 2018 release.

After the debacle of other anime and manga adaptations (still holding out hope for Cowboy Bebop) this Cameron and Rodriguez production with the underestimated talent of Salazar could prove that there is still countless opportunities to adapt other essential franchises in the future. It focuses on a cyborg named Alita who is brought back online after losing all her memories. But you have to watch the trailer to see Alita's rendition! Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first.

Despite Dr. Ido's efforts to shield her from her mysterious origins, Alita sets out to discover the truth about her life. Alita is a former war machine Discarded in a dump and revived by what we think is a kind cyberneticist (Christoph Waltz), she then becomes a bounty hunter. The character looks like an anime doll come to life, or like a Disney character that's just a hair off from normal. Additional scenes show Chiren (Jennifer Connely) and Vector (Masherala Ali) too.
