It has been confirmed that the first official footage from director Robert Rodriguez and producer James Cameron’s live-action adaptation of the manga “Alita: Battle Angel” will hit later today.
Set in the 26th century, the story follows an amnesiac female cyborg who is rescued from a scrapyard by a doctor. The rebuilt Alita, remembering only her training in a deadly martial art, becomes a hunter-warrior, tracking down and eliminating vicious criminals.
To tease the release, the first clip has gone online and can be seen below with a brief glimpse of Rosa Salazar as the titular cyborg alongside Christoph Waltz as Doctor Ido.
