Alita - Battle Angel

Alita has hit a slight snag in rebooting, and so James Cameron’s Alita: Battle Angel has been pushed back. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that, rather than being released on July 20th as planned, the live-action adaptation of Yukito Kishiro’s Battle Angel Alita manga will now get its wide theatrical release on December 21st, 2018.

Cameron decided to take a backseat role to produce this movie, bringing Sin City‘s Robert Rodriguez in to direct. Starring Rosa Salazar as Alita, the main cast is completed by Inglorious Basterds’ Cristoph Waltz, MoonlightMahershala Ali and Game of Thrones‘ Ed Skrein.

A trailer was released in December, which sparked a wave of intrigue and controversy around Alita’s enormous eyes. Rodriguez, alongside Cameron’s fellow producer Jon Landau, caught up with IGN shortly after to discuss their reasoning behind the startling effect.

Hmmmm that really is a shame. Alita is my favorite Manga so I was quite looking forward to this. Oh well…at least something to look forward to for the final month of the year 😀

Shame this one has been pushed back. There was a lot of buzz around it.
