I went to see Alita: Battle Angel over the weekend and it’s fantastic. Go see the IMAX 3D version. Robert Rodriguez did a fantastic job adapting Yukito Kishiro’s manga series into a live action feature film. In case you haven’t heard of it, watch the trailer below:
I’ve been an fan of the series in comic/manga for since the 90s. Kishiro is a highly regarded illustrator that rose to prominence at the age of 17 when he released his first manga series. The Alita series is his best known work and if you want all of it in one sweet box, you can buy the collected deluxe edition here.
