While he may be busy working tirelessly to bring the next chapter(s) of Avatar to our screens, in the meanwhile master of cinema James Cameron has written a screenplay for a whole new world, bringing the popular manga series to life in Alita: Battle Angel.
To mark the film’s release we had the pleasure of speaking the core members of the cast & crew, chatting to lead star Rosa Salazar, as well as Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly and Keean Johnson. We also were thrilled to sit down with the film’s director, the one and only Robert Rodriguez, as well as mega-Hollywood producer, and long-time collaborator of Cameron, Jon Landau.
Be sure to watch the full video below, and don’t miss Waltz’s interview at the very end were things get, well, somewhat interesting (and challenging for our dear interviewer).
Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido, 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. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious past.
Alita: Battle Angel is released on February 6th
