What else can we expect from this manga-adapted flick? Read on to find out.
1. A futuristic but broken society
The devastated future world Alita: Battle Angel is split between the haves in the shining city of Zalem, and the have-nots living a hardscrabble life in Iron City. Our heroine finds herself in the latter, without any memories.
2. A complex, relatable heroine
Alita may be a cyborg, but there seems to be more to her than her robotic gears. She may not look entirely human, but she sure is as conflicted and emotional as one. There will be a lot of things for Alita to discover besides navigating in the 26th century, she’ll also be in search for her forgotten past.
When the deadly and corrupt forces running the city come for Alita, she uncovers her unique fighting abilities.
3. Gorgeous art and animation
This is one thing we can be sure of; we can expect an exhilarating cinematic experience when James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez are at the helm. Cameron has worked on blockbuster hits like Avatar and Terminator, while Rodriguez had his hands in films including Sin City, Spy Kids, and Machete.
From 20th Century Fox, step into the latest unparalleled immersive experience when Alita: Battle Angel opens February 6 in cinemas nationwide. The movie is available in 2D, and best seen in 3D and IMAX 3D screens.
