Following December’s first look at the upcoming film, director Robert Rodriguez and screenwriter/producer James Cameron unveiled the full clip for Alita: Battle Angel at Comic Con 2018. Starring Rosa Salazar as the title character, the film sees the cyborg warrior taking on the corrupt government of a futuristic city, under the guidance of Christoph Waltz‘s Ido. Cameron has reportedly been trying to get this film made since falling in love with Yukito Kishiro’s Battle Angel Alita — also known as Gunnm — manga series in the late ’90s; this trailer is essentially the culmination of nearly two decades of effort.
Alita: Battle Angel premieres on December 21, head to the official Alita website for more information. Elsewhere at San Diego Comic Con, the full trailer for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald premiered.
