Alita: Battle Angel: A new global trailer released today
Twentieth Century Fox recently revealed another look at James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel with the release of the global trailer. It followed on from a live Q&A held online today with James Cameron, director Robert Rodriguez, producer Jon Landau, and star Rosa Salazar all in attendance. You can watch the new trailer for Alita: Battle Angel above.
When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo offers instead to help trigger her memories.
But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.
Based on the manga series by Yukito Kishiro, the film also stars Keean Johnson, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali and Jackie Earle Haley.
Robert Rodriguez directs while James Cameron is responsible for writing the screenplay.
Alita: Battle Angel arrives in UK cinemas on December 26th 2018.
