Great New Featurette For ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL Focuses on Bringing The Story To Life


If you’re excited about Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron’s Alita: Battle Angel, I’ve got a featurette for you to watch that puts the focus on the making of the film.

The video includes interview with the talented cast and crew as they discuss what went into bringing this story to life for the big screen, including the VFX work that went into it. It also shows off some new footage from the film.

I love what I’ve seen from this movie so far. It’s definitely going to be visually stunning and I just hope that the story and script end up being as equally as impressive. The video below offers some great insight on the film. Check it out and tell us what you think.

The film is based on the graphic novel series Gunnm by Yukito Kishiro, and this is the synopsis that was released:

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.

Alita: Battle Angel also stars Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, and Jackie Earle Haley. The movie is set to be released on February 14, 2019.
