The Badass Film ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL Gets a Super Bowl Trailer and Motorball Clip
The Super Bowl trailer for director Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel has been released online along with another action-packed clip featuring the epic Motorball scene. We shared a clip similar to that already, but it was in a different language and removed from YouTube, so if you didn’t get a chance to watch it, you can watch it now, and it’s pretty cool!
I had a chance to watch Alita: Battle Angel last week and I freakin’ loved it! The movie had James Cameron’s fingerprints all over it. We’ll have a full review coming soon, but I thought it was a pretty badass flick! Anyway, enjoy the new trailer and clip and know that your excitement for the film is justified!
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, and Ed Skrein. The movie is set to be released on February 14, 2019.
