  • Official trailer for Alita: Battle Angel arrives in full wide-eyed glory

Battle Angel Alita, originally titled "Gunnm" in Japan, is a manga that started way back in 1990 about Alita, an amnesiac robot who is rebuilt after being found in a junkyard and discovers that there is something special about her. "Alita: Battle Angel" is an action-packed sci-fi story of a woman's discovery of her own abilities and her fight for global change. We'd barely raise an eyebrow if this were a cartoon, but she's played by a real actress (Rosa Salazar) with the aid of "realistic" CG animation - and boy, do they look weird.

Right now, it looks like Alita: Battle Angel will get its full trailer released tomorrow.

Apple may acquire Shazam and announce it on Monday
Privately held Shazam was founded in 1999, and initially worked by using mobile phones' SMS text-messaging features to ID a song. Shazam has raised $143 million since 2002, and finally made a profit of $54 million past year due to advertising revenues.


The film is directed by Rodriguez (Sin City) with a screenplay by Cameron, Rodriguez and Laeta Kalogridis. Cameron, who serves as executive producer, plans on focusing on the core of the story, including the fictional sport, Motorball, which was seen in the manga's third and fourth volume.

"Robert and I have been looking for a film to do together for years, so I was pumped when he said he wanted to do 'Battle Angel, '" Cameron said in the 2015 announcement of the film. Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. With no memory of her previous life, except for her deadly martial-arts skills, she becomes a bounty hunter, tracking down criminals. It also features Christoph Waltz as the cyborg-doctor, along with Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, and Keean Johnson. And while she tries to make sense of it all while becoming acquainted with the "harsh world" where the powerful prey on the weak, something she must uncover from her past makes her a danger that leads other very powerful cyborgs to hunt her down.
