Alita: Battle Angel Official Trailer
Publication/Creation DateJuly 23 2018
DescriptionSet in a far future where overpopulation led to creating floating cities and the colonization of Mars, Alita: Battle Angel depicts a post-apocalyptic future where cybernetic modification is taken to its extreme. The poor are not permitted in the floating cities but believe that if they make enough money they can buy their way in. Alita is a cyborg, almost entirely synthetic except her head. She is found in a wasteland below the floating city Zolem, and is repaired by the nearby town's doctor/roboticist. Completely unaware of her past, Alita begins to have flashbacks whenever in life or death situations. After falling in love with a street-savvy kid named Hugo, Alita becomes a bounty hunter in order to both discover who she is and earn enough money to take them both to Zalem.
The film is based on the 1990s manga series Gunnm, with the screenplay being written by James Cameron.
