Watch: Alita: Battle Angel Behind the Scenes


Last night I saw Alita: Battle Angel movie and my overall impressions was "those trailers didn't give enough justice to the entire piece of the film". I think that is perfectly cool though, in a way, as I would rather have this kind of work delivered to me than seeing a very hyped up and exciting trailer that has almost shown the entire movie when the actual film itself is nothing but a disappointment.

Needless to say, my expectations were really very low based on what I saw in the trailers. I just wanted to watch this and see how it was done since it's based on a 1990s post-apocalyptic manga created by Yukito Kishiro and also knowing that it was created by a couple well-known filmmakers of our time. In other words, I and my daughter of 7 years old completely enjoyed the entirety of Alita: Battle Angel and that thanks to the creative minds of James Cameron (Titanic, Avatar) and director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City).

In case you have not seen it, I highly recommend to watch this film with friends or family. It's a well crafted one and has a lot of things going on in it not just in the plot details, but also in the technical aspect or cinematography as well as potential prequel and sequel elements of it.

For now, check out its behind the scenes video clip below released by 20th Century Fox giving us some more details on how they brought Alita and her world from the manga to the big screen.



Synopsis:

From the visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City), comes Alita: Battle Angel, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she 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. 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."

Alita: Battle Angel is now released in the Philippines.
