DI­REC­TOR:

Robert Ro­driguez

CAST: Ed Skrein, Jen­nifer Con­nelly, Rosa Salazar

Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, take note – this is how live-ac­tion adap­ta­tions of clas­sic manga are sup­posed to be made. Part- Pinoc­chio, part- Blade

Run­ner, this post-apoc­a­lyp­tic ac­tion film fol­lows a junk yard an­droid called Alita (Rosa Salazar) who’s bodged back to life by a cy­ber-doc­tor called Ido (Christoph Waltz). But of course an army of sadis­tic cy­borgs want Alita un­plugged, re­sult­ing in some se­ri­ously slick bat­tle se­quences. Be­fore the script landed in di­rec­tor Ro­driguez’s lap, it was orig­i­nally writ­ten by James Cameron – and if this is a pre­cur­sor to Avatar 2, 2020 can’t come soon enough.
