New Alita: Battle Angel Trailer Threatens the Natural Order of Things


A new trailer for manga adaptation Alita: Battle Angel has arrived in the wake of Comic-Con International.

Produced by James Cameron (Avatar) and directed by Robert Rodriguez (Sin City), Alita: Battle Angel is the newest in a recent rush of Hollywood adaptations of manga and anime. It’s also hoping to buck the trend and become both a critical and a commercial success. Following the disappointing reception to movies like Death Note and Ghost in the Shell, that’s a valid concern.
