This trailer leans into the epic scope of the film with Alita leaping through some particularly amazing wide shots of the Scrapyard--the geographic setting of the manga and film. We also get an idea of which parts of the story the film will be adapting; it looks like they'll be delving into one of the most iconic story beats with Motorball featured heavily in this teaser. Motorball is a vicious, brutal sport Alita takes up in the third book.One of the best things about this trailer is the use of moments that are instantly recognizable to fans--moments such as Alita smashing the head of Ed Skrein's Zapan through a table, Alita doing a one fingered handstand, and of course her incredible Motorball skills. This trailer has us excited for the film, which arrives on February 14, 2019.Will you be watching Alita: Battle Angel? Have a moment you're particularly excited for?
