Second Trailer for Robert Rodriguez's Robot Sci-Fi 'Alita: Battle Angel'
"She is threatening the natural order…" 20th Century Fox has released the second official 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. This new trailer was originally shown in Hall H at Comic-Con last week, and now available for everyone else to watch. They used James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis' original script that has been going around, and Cameron is also a producer along with Jon Landau. Cameron was supposed to direct for years, but handed it over to Rodriguez. 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. I know this will be debated and argued endlessly - but I think this looks awesome! A very heavy CGI futuristic world, fully realized, with some crazy cool characters. The anime eyes don't bother me, and I'm sure the CGI will be polished by the time it opens in December. Fire this up.
Here's the second trailer (+ poster) for Robert Rodriguez's Alita: Battle Angel, direct from YouTube:
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 on December 21st this holiday season. Looking better?

This looks like a lot of fun...I'm still wary because, Rodriguez... Oh, and I like the eyes!

Idk...the action looks cool, but I'm not overly excited. Might wait for the cheap theaters...

Where I'm at, there's second run theaters where films go before they head to Redbox/cable. You can catch a double feature for $4/$5! So, you get a theatrical experience, but the seats are a bit old.

Yes, I'm in the PNW. And it's a great option for those "on the fence" movies you're not sure if you want to shell out $17 bucks for. Also, you can get a tub of popcorn, two giant sodas and a candy for around $10!

Ok, escapism is marching big. And nothing else, of course. Yes, this looks candid and is watchable for fun. But it is also expendable sort of entertainment. Even I plan to see it, I'm not going to run for it...

This still looks awful to me. Boring, tedious and riddled with cliches. I think I'd pick up another Transformers film before I committed to watching this. Why Cameron is wasting his time with nonsense like this and the Avatar sequels is really beyond me. I guess having so many grovelling Fox executives wanting to placate and enable every whim and desire that you have must let your creativity to turn into mush and disappear up your own arse.
