In the never-ending quest to expand our efforts for the Pop Culture interests, I was glad to find the trailer for the upcoming live-action feature based on the hit Manga series “Battle Angel Alita”. The first trailer comes care of 20th Century Fox and you can enjoy it below along with some premise and the casting. I’ll close out with additional editorial as is my standard, let’s go.
The Premise: “Alita: Battle Angel” follows the story of the titular Alita, a disembodied “core” who awakens with no memory in a post-apocalyptic world destroyed by a technological fall. Dr. Ido finds her and gives her a new body. They later discover that Alita is more than what she seems and has an extraordinary past. As she navigates her new life, she battles other machines who are empowered with skills.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Despite my deep love of the comic book medium and the industry that delivers them to us, I’ve never quite caught on with the Anime and Manga stuff. Since I’ve attended both the Liberty City Anime Con and Anime NYC over the years, I’ve made some notes on the stuff I should be reading more into and watching when the time allows and with that disclosure being disclosed, I wonder what you thought about this trailer. This is especially important for me if you were a fan of the original manga so chime in down below in the comments. See you next time.
