Alita: Battle Angel
Coming Soon On-Demand 24 July 2019
An angel falls. A warrior rises.
Producer James Cameron teams up with helmer Robert Rodriguez for this feature adaptation of Yukito Kishiro's classic manga starring Rosa Salazar.
In the twenty-sixth century, a female cyborg is rescued from the scrap heap by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a scientist. With no memory of who she is or any recognition of the world around her, Alita sets out on a journey that will lead her to take on the injustices of the world and find out who she really is.
Producer Cameron has stated that "What I’m going to do is take the spine story and use elements from the first four books. So, the Motorball from books three and four, and parts of the story of one and two will all be in the movie."

Alita... kick ass fun!
A visual feast that re-sets the standard for special effects, fantastic sound editing and a lead character you' ll find yourself cheering for. Alita is a movie to just grab your coke and popcorn, shut the door on the world and enjoy the ride.
One star for bang wallop crash. Another for a wasted leading lady. Abysmal story, grafted together from recycled scrap parts. Nothing happens to jolt this tone deaf mess into life.
