X-SOLDIER
Default Alita: Battle Angel (Live Action Film)

Apparently James Cameron's getting Robert Rodriguez to direct a live action adaptation of the manga, so I guess we can just wait and see how it turns out.

I expect good things if Robert Rodriguez is directing.

Same. I quite enjoy his films and his style, and hopefully because Cameron's nuts about Alita in general, they'll figure out how to do a non-shite adaptation of an anime (unlike seemingly everyone else).

As a human being I utterly despise James Cameron, but I'm a long time fan of Titanic and I loved Avatar. Having said that, while they're both epic, they suffer terribly from TL;DR.

Here's hoping Cameron's hand in the movie (and therefore boss-ship over Robert Rodriguez) isn't quite as Stalin-esque as every single person whose ever worked with him has made him out to be, because the movie will suffer.

Wasn't this kind of old-ish news? I remember reading about a LA adaptation of it a while ago... but maybe the addition of Rodriguez is what's new. Hrm...

Yeah, but I'd rather have nothing for a change. How do you do it?
Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

At least the officialization and collaboration with RR is brand new.

Yeah I remember reading about this a couple years back while searching "anime/manga film adaptations" or summat and Battle Angel by James Cameron was one of them (similar to "Ghost in the Shell by Steven Spielberg" lolol)

Good to see these things coming out of the woodwork... I think?

I think the new's always been floating around. Hasn't he been wanting to make a Battle Angel movie since the 90s?

Yeah I was literally a child when I first read about the James Cameron Battle Angel movie lol.

Good to see some new news on this though.

This. He has been promising it for decades. The last I heard he promised to 'look into it' after Avatar 2 and 3 were done. Glad there's a director attached now at least.

I never read the manga but I loved the anime when I was younger. This could be epic.

Really weird choice of a soundtrack for the trailer ... but yeah, as a fan of the anime, I can't help but feel hyped by that.

It's really interesting her appearance is VERY intentionally placed into the uncanny valley, and directly addressed in the trailer with the, "Does it bother you that I'm not completely human?" Overall, I'm oddly REALLY loving the look of it the more I keep watching it.
