Alita: Battle Angel Trailer

"It's a harsh world. The strong prey on the weak down here." Whoa. You have to see this! After almost a decade in development, Robert Rodriguez finally went off and made James Cameron's adaptation of Alita: Battle Angel, based on the popular manga series. 20th Century Fox has debuted the first trailer for Alita: Battle Angel, about a deadly cyborg humanoid named Alita, played by Rosa Salazar, who is found in a scrap heap by Dr. Dyson Ido. Rodriguez used James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis' script that has been floating around for years, and Cameron is also a producer along with Jon Landau. So this still has the James Cameron touch (since he was originally supposed to direct), but Rodriguez is at the helm instead. The film's full cast includes Jennifer Connelly, Eiza González, Michelle Rodriguez, Christoph Waltz, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeff Fahey, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, and Casper Van Dien. Get your first look here.

Here's the first official trailer for Robert Rodriguez's Alita: Battle Angel, direct from Fox's YouTube:

Alita: Battle Angel Movie

Alita is a creation from an age of despair. Found by the mysterious Dr. Ido while trolling for cyborg parts, Alita becomes a lethal, dangerous being. She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from Tiphares. But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita's true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death. Alita: Battle Angel is directed by American filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, of El Mariachi, Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, The Faculty, Spy Kids 1 - 4, Grindhouse's Planet Terror, Sin City, Machete 1 & 2, and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For previously. The screenplay is written by James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis; based on Yukito Kishiro's acclaimed manga series first published in 1990. 20th Century Fox will release Rodriguez's Alita: Battle Angel in theaters everywhere starting July 20th, 2018 next summer.

Beautiful! Jennifer Connely I mean. the trailer was okay.

Jon Odishaw on Dec 8, 2017


Jennifer Connelly looking good. Found out she was in Spiderman Homecoming. This looks pretty good...need another trailer to decide.

Her voice was in Spiderman

David Diaz on Dec 8, 2017


That counts as being in it. Paul Bettany as been in the marvel films since Iron Man.

I'm not excited. But I am interested. Need another trailer before I can decide. Mind is not blown, just kind of meh right now... I think the CGI of the character is a looks out of place among everything else.

same here. I don't trust Rodriguez

tarek on Dec 8, 2017


A lot of work has been put in this. But eventually, it just looks like a good fun, nothing more ...

I am not sold on this at all. Why make the lead character completely CG? Total uncanny valley territory. Brings me right out of the trailer. Why is she the only one with anime sized eyes? She just looks completely different from the rest of the live action and CG elements. Such a strange design choice.

David Diaz on Dec 8, 2017


Large eyes are suppose to be more attractive, forgetting the anime side of things, she may have once been a s@x-doll since it shows her recovered from scrap. I've no idea on the background story.

this movie will either bomb at the box office or will be just is that kind of a movie,looks weird,but also interesting...if it will have a good story,and just enough jaw-dropping action scenes,and a little touch of has the chances to be one of the big movies of 2018...but it can also just...bomb...i guess we will find out in july 2018

Bruce Waynes on Dec 8, 2017


Cool! I want to believe!

DAVIDPD on Dec 8, 2017


Looks interesting. Not sure why they went with mocap for the lead only, seems (and looks) strange, but could be good. Some mighty fine casting.

grimjob on Dec 8, 2017


I'm with you on that mocap look. We'll see how it plays out.

Quanah on Dec 8, 2017


bass ad! I'll watch that!

redtie on Dec 8, 2017


The eyes are too big, it's like ET with boobies. I know, story wise it will be okay like every Cameron movie, but with Rodriguez at the helm i am afraid it will be a children's movie.

ari smulders on Dec 8, 2017


Emphasis on every Cameron movie being "okay." I've always thought Rodriguez was over rated. The only film he did that I semi-enjoyed was the first Sin City. I'm with you. A little skeptical with Rodriguez directing this.

Quanah on Dec 9, 2017


I think from dusk till dawn is pretty cool too from Rodriguez. But most directors are falling in love with cgi nowadays (Snyder, Cameron, whedon etc) and totally forget the human side of it. No matter how good cgi can be, the human eye is not replaceable by a computer. Not now, never. It all looks plastic concerned the human part of it.

ari smulders on Dec 9, 2017


Machete 🙁

I've watched it a few times now, doesn't seem totally terrible. Really liked the anime, so hope it will be good.

Carpola on Dec 9, 2017


I not understand the nit-picking "her eyes are too big" "uncanny valley" etc. Sounds like a bunch of ol' grandmas. Pick, pick, pick.... I thought this looked great! I loved how she looked. A great trailer that doesn't show the whole movie, a good song...I'm ready to see this RIGHT NOW!

kitano0 on Dec 9, 2017


Looks poor and uninteresting. Like a lamer version of Ghost in the Shell. Nothing in it motivates me to see it in the cinema.

Payne by name on Dec 9, 2017


Looks great but memories from Roberto's past films ... Machete.,Spy Kids.....still hurts.

Pincode on Dec 12, 2017


The eyes are a holdover from anime. without digging too deep into it. Large open eyes mean innocence. They'e exaggerated on purpose.
