This is the official trailer for the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel film that was unveiled at an SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con) panel earlier today!
While this trailer does look spectacular, I already detect a bit of divergence from the source material. And I am someone who hasn’t looked at the comic in a very long time!😄 As I’ve mentioned before, Hollywood films based on Japanese comics or games can be quite hit and miss, and although this seems to bare little relation to how closely the film follows the original material, in this case I hope the story does not diverge too much. I thoroughly enjoyed the first arc of the comic (which I believe is the arc that the movie will cover), so it would be nice to see a somewhat similar story come to life on the big screen, with amazing modern special effects, of course.😋
Alita: Battle Angel is out on December 21 in the USA, so my guess it will be out on December 20 here in Australia, although sometimes movies are held back for the Boxing Day holiday. But whatever the release date for it will be, I’m certainly looking forward to it! Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
