Alita: Battle Angel

A James Cameron masterpiece, Alita: Battle Angel is a cyberpunk action film based on a manga also known as Battle Angel Alita. It tells the story of a cyborg girl rescued from a junkyard by a scientist who rebuilds her and together they explore her mysterious past.
In 1995, Cameron (Titanic, Avatar) earned the rights to create the movie and had a script ready since 2005 but with his plans for future Avatar sequels in mind, he had to hand it over to another director leaving him to produce it instead. Seeing as Alita has been almost two decades to produce, we’re certainly excited to finally see it on the big screen!
