20th Century Fox unveiled the epic trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel during a worldwide live Q&A on social media with the director, producers James Cameron and Jon Landau, and the film’s star Rosa Salazar.
Alita: Battle Angel is a story of hope and empowerment and judging from the trailer it’s an absolute visual feast. From the cutting-edge graphics through to the intriguing storyline, it’s certain to be one of the year’s most-talked about films.
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 (Keean Johnson) 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.
Alita: Battle Angel is written by James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis and based on the graphic novel Manga series Gunnm By Yukito Kishiro.
The film will be released in UK cinemas this December.
