ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL Trailer Released

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL Trailer Released

Splashers, it’s always a pleasure to have your face slapped by a product you didn’t know about. Haven’t heard any buzz leading up to it, and out of nowhere; boom. That may not be the case for everyone, but you better believe I just had my eyes opened. That’s a line that will be a little funnier, and cheesier, after you’ve seen the trailer for Fox’s upcoming Alita: Battle Angel. It’s produced by James Cameron (Avatar) and Jon Landau (Dick Tracy, there were other options but I like that one). Oh, and it’s directed by Robert Rodriguez (You know who he is!) Alright, enough chatter, let’s see!

 

Shut up, and take my money!

Visionary filmmakers James Cameron (AVATAR) and Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY) create a groundbreaking new heroine in ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, an action-packed story of hope, love and empowerment. Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships. It is then that Alita discovers she has extraordinary fighting abilities that could be used to save the friends and family she’s grown to love. Determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, Alita sets out on a journey that will lead her to take on the injustices of this dark, corrupt world, and discover that one young woman can change the world in which she lives.
