The only thing I got out of all of that?

"Damn, what's with the giant anime eyes?"

Visually impressive, but it looks like that's what it's going to be all about.

Why is she the ONLY one with animu eyes? It's kinda a strange decision when the rest of the robo people are normal looking.

Mixture of live action and CGI renders? Kinda hard to tell. Uncanny valley, here we come.

Of course the real question is, is it a good story?

It ought to be better than 70% of the super hero movies out there

All I could think of was a Dues Ex rip off with augmented humans just replaced with robots, or whatever they were.

edit: 20 internet points to the OP for the 'eye-popping'

As much as I love Deus Ex, Battle Angel Alita predates Deus Ex by quite a large margin.

Im ok with the big eyes but wish they would cast asian once in a while for anime.

Scarlet in GITS was ok but movie wouldve been better with an unknown actress.

James Cameron definitely has some weird fetish for CGI-ed creepy eyes.

So they've censored it already, e.g. typical battle angel Alita



Rather than the this



Really starting to get tired of hollywood censoring everything, the Harlequin back story of Stockholm syndrome and domestic violence was ok for the originating Saturday morning cartoon, but the live action Suicide Squad found this too controversial for 15+ film.

EDIT: Anyway here's the original trailer

The right term is Manga, not Cartoon.

I'll check this out. I'm not familiar with the anime version. However, this likely means a live action Akira is coming soon...

Do yourself a favor and watch the Anime instead of this crap. As for Akira, sadly you're right.

The live action Akira has been floating around Hollywood for years. It is a story with no clear good guys unless they really change the story. But not sure there is room for a big budget R movie where the main charters are gang members that sell drugs and rape girls.

well, we had Sausage Party at the theatres so i wouldn't be too surprised if they made an R movie based on a manga. It would be terrible bad, sure, but they _could_ do it. Now would Leonardo di Caprio be Tetsuo or Kaneda, hmmm....

Producer: "But isn't Kaneda like.... asian?"
Leonardo Di Caprio:
Producer: "Ok, you got the Job!"
