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?
