First Alita: Battle Angel Clip Is A Wild Cybernetic Showdown

"Watch her die."


Alita: Battle Angel is the long-awaited live action adaptation of the classic manga, and it has been a dream project for writer/producer James Cameron for many years. The movie finally arrives in February 2019, and a first clip has now been released.

The clip was shown at The Game Awards in LA. It shows a confrontation between cybernetic fighting machine Alita (Rosa Salazar) and a trio of deadly assassins who have ambushed her and Dr. Ido (Christoph Waltz). It definitely captures the wild cyberpunk action of the source material--check it out above.

This clip follows the latest trailer, which recapped much of the basic plot and was released in October. Alita: Battle Angel also stars Jennifer Connelly (Hulk), Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Luke Cage), Ed Skrein (Deadpool), and Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen). It's directed by Sin City's Robert Rodriguez.

The movie was originally set for release in July this year, but was delayed a couple of times and now hits theaters on February 14, 2019.

When the first trailer debuted last year, the movie attracted some controversy for the look of the title character--specifically, her large, unnatural eyes. Rodriguez explained at San Diego Comic Con in July that he wanted a realistic depiction of the source material, echoing James Cameron's wishes to bring the manga to life.
