What can be deemed as an interesting collaboration, James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez finally bring the manga adaptation Alita: Battle Angel to life and the first trailer is revealed.
Rosa Salazar plays the titular character, an android who is found by Dr. Ito (Christoph Waltz) and is rebuilt. Armed with lethal fighting skills, Alita helps her “father” who moonlights as a bounty hunter and learns about her past in the midst of fighting an array of villains who may have a connection to her past.
Ed Skrein, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, and Marko Zaror co-star in the film with Rodriguez directing with Cameron and Jon Landau serving as producers. The film is a live action adaptation of the manga Gunnm by Yukito Kishiro.
The film is set to be released on July 20, 2018 from 20th Century Fox.
