We’re less than two weeks away from Robert Rodriguez‘s Alita: Battle Angel, based on the Japanese manga series “Gunnm” by Yukito Kishiro and produced/co-written by James Cameron. Meagan saw the film a bit early this week and wrote in her review that it’s “a stunning showcase of visual storytelling,” and we’ve got a new TV spot tonight.
Check it out below, straight out of the Super Bowl!
Set in the 26th century…
“Alita tells of a female cyborg that is discovered in a scrapyard by a scientist. With no memory of her previous life except her deadly martial-arts training, the woman becomes a bounty hunter, tracking down criminals. The action-adventure story is meant to serve as a backdrop to themes of self-discovery and the search for love.”
The cast includes Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley and Keean Johnson.
Cameron, Laeta Kalogridis and Robert Rodriguez wrote the script.
Alita arrives on February 14, 2019.
