The first 'Alita: Battle Angel' trailer is a real eyeful

First 'Alita: Battle Angel' Trailer Reveals Robert Rodriguez's Crazy Sci-Fi Adaptation

Watch the creepy trailer for Alita: Battle Angel, the live-action adaptation of a classic manga

Like some kind of fever dream from my teenaged years, visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Aliens, Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) have joined forces like Voltron to create a groundbreaking new science fiction vision in Alita: Battle Angel. Cameron wrote the screenplay with Laeta Kalogridis.

Yeah, it looks weird, but credit to Robert Rodriguez for taking something as commonly explored as film and presenting it with a vision that's entirely his. I don't know if it'll be good, but it definitely seems like it'll at least be interesting. When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. And just having this huge spectacle-type world but with a story that can really connect - that's what Jim does best.

"I loved this song and thought it went so well with the movie", Rodriguez says.

Cameron originally outlined Alita as a trilogy of films, so there's a chance the movie could be the start of a franchise. But after so many years of CGI animators trying to mimic convincing human faces and not entirely succeeding, it's still unsettling to see a character hovering this close to realistic, while staying this far away from it.

The first trailer for Alita: Battle Angel has arrived, and the reaction it's receiving surely can't be what everyone involved was hoping for.
