Some impressive names are behind the actiontastic Alita: Battle Angel, including James Cameron co-writing and producing, and Robert Rodriguez co-writing and directing. Here’s a “BOOJ!” enhanced look at it.
The movie revolves around the titular cyborg Alita, who awakens in a future with no recollection as to who she is. Kindly scientist Ido has reassembled her with the odd spare part, nurturing and shielding her as she learns to navigate life on the rough streets of Iron City. But when the city’s corrupt forces come after her, Alita begins to discover keys to her past, including unique fighting abilities that just may save the world.
Based on the manga series Gunnm by Yukito Kishiro, the cast includes Rosa Salazar (Insurgent, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials) as Alita, Christoph Waltz as Ido, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Casper van Dien, Jackie Earle Haley and Keean Johnson.
Alita: Battle Angel is due in Australian cinemas on Boxing Day (December 26).
