2018 Movies – Alita: Battle Angel (Trailer Song)
20th Century Fox has released the official trailer for Alita: Battle Angel, from visionary filmmakers James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez.
The film, based on the graphic novel series “Gunnm” By Yukito Kishiro and described as “an epic adventure of hope and empowerment,” follows Alita (Rosa Salazar), a young woman who – according to the official synopsis – “awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize and is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. The synopsis also reveals that, “As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love”.
The cast also includes Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, and Jackie Earle Haley.
The song used in the trailer is a cover of Linkin Park’s 2009 single “New Divide”, which was recorded specifically for Michael Bay’s film “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”.
Alita: Battle Angel is set to hit theaters this winter, on December 21, 2018.
