AceShowbiz - A new trailer for "Alita: Battle Angel" has been released for viewing pleasure, three months before the movie's scheduled release date. After introducing the titular character and highlighting the dramatic part of the movie in previously released trailers, the latest one is seemingly intended to focus on the actions.
Set to chilling music, the video shows Alita finding out about her origin and using her fighting powers to stand against "evil." Her presence is later deemed a threat to "the natural order of things" and Mahershala Ali's character is seen ordering her assassination.
The video also offers a glimpse of the deadly sport of Motorball, which is described as a hugely popular and super violent gladiatorial contest in Iron City, for the first time. Alita is then seen telling Ali's character that he makes the biggest mistake by underestimating her.
From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (producer) and Robert Rodriguez (director), comes "Alita: Battle Angel", an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past.
As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past - she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she's grown to love.
Jon Landau also produces the film which is written by Cameron along with Laeta Kalogridis. Also starring Jennifer Connelly, Ed Skrein and Jackie Earle Haley, the sci-fi movie is scheduled to bow in U.S. theaters on February 14, 2019.
