The first trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s "Alita: Battle Angel" has arrived.

Based on the hit manga turned anime series, "Alita: Battle Angel" is an upcoming science fiction action film produced by visionary filmmaker James Cameron and Jon Landau, and directed by Rodriguez. 

Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Maze Runner’s Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. 

When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. 

As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. 

A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships. 

A 20TH Century Fox feature film, "Alita: Battle Angel" will open July 2018 in Philippine cinemas to be distributed by Warner Bros.
