Alita: Battle Angel's New Trailer Digs Into the Heart of the Most Advanced Weapon Ever

By Cheryl Eddy on at

It’s been nearly a year since the first trailer for Alita: Battle Angeldirected by Robert Rodriguez, co-produced and co-written by James Cameron, the project’s longtime champion – startled us with the main character’s exaggerated, distractingly creepy eyes.

Fortunately, a second trailer brought a little more story into focus (and seemed to scale down those peepers somewhat). Now we’ve got a third trailer that builds out the world of the film – which is based on the manga series by Yukito Kishiro, and stars Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, and Mahershala Ali – even more.

Though Alita: Battle Angel was originally set for a December 2018 release, we learned back in September that it’ll be hitting cinemas in February 2019 instead.
