It seems like it has been in development for years upon years but finally James Cameron’s passion project ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL is close to being released and to celebrate the first trailer has just been released.
The film is directed by Robert Rodriguez and It’s probably fair to say that Cameron has chosen a very capable chap to oversee production, however, for a visionary film-maker who is renowned for creating game-changing VFX there still seems to be a case of the ‘uncanny valley’ about the characters in the film.
It looks cool still and visually we’re sure it will be a feast for the eyes but the problems lie in the CGI eyes of ALITA herself whose appearance is just a little bit…odd to say the least! Still, if there’s one man who can break the duck and actually help oversee a break in the trend of making sub-par ‘anime film adaptations it’s James Cameron.
The movie is released on 20th June 2018.
