Alita: Battle Angel
Based on Yukito Kishiro’s manga Battle Angel Alita, Alita is a futuristic cyborg who wakes up in a doctor’s clinic with no memory of who she is. She must soon use her extraordinary fighting abilities to combat deadly forces while trying to uncover the truth behind her mysterious past. James Cameron is producing, Robert Rodriguez directing and cast looks pretty impressive with Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained), one of our Hot Latina Honorees Eiza Gonzalez and newcomer Rosa Salazar in the titular role.
Our Take: Were suckers for the Robert Rodriguez and Eiza Gonzalez combo. Plus, with superheroes and remakes dominating the releases, would be refreshing to get another Avatar like experience (i.e., more originality vs. less retread).
