A new trailer for Alita: Battle Angel dropped. Directed by Robert Rodriquez the visuals look Blade Runner inspired while the story seems to invoke some Geppetto like themes, all set in a dystopian world.
Based on the graphic novel series Gunnm by Yukito Kishiro, and this is the synopsis that was released:
James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) create a groundbreaking new heroine in Alita: Battle Angel, an action-packed story of hope, love and empowerment. Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg to his clinic. When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. Everything is new, every experience a first. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships.
The film also stars Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali and Eiza Gonzalez. Peep the trailer below.
