Not since July have we heard anything new this manga mega-adventure directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron.
Based on the 9-volume Japanese manga Gunnm written and drawn by Yukito Kishiro. The comic book ran from 1990 to 1995 and was released in North America under the title Battle Angel Alita. It was followed by the 19-volume sequel series Battle Angel Alita: Last Order which ran from 2000 to 2014 and later by Gunnm: Mars Chronicle, which began in 2014 and is currently ongoing.
However, a new trailer has dropped…
Alita: Battle Angel was originally set for a December 2018 release, it will be hitting UK cinemas and IMAX theaters on February 6, 2019 and in the US on February 14. This is probably a good thing ’cause it would be competing with too many other blockbuster movie with a December release.
