Want to know how a sure hit could amount to a relative bomb? An interesting case study would be that of 2019’s Alita: Battle Angel for instance as the story behind it is an interesting one to explore. The project finally arrived in theaters in order to launch a franchise with it after having spent years in development limbo. The sci-fi romp was showered by a vast majority of critics and moviegoers alike with well-earned praise. At the same time, the project’s financial standing were severely damaging enough to prevent its plans from coming into fruition.
When it comes to the fleshing out of its individuals and setting, the film really did a good job and certainly had more potential to flourish in the near future. The titular cyborg is the main focus of the film and of course it is none other than Alita (played by Rosa Salazar) and her surrogate father, Dr. Dyson Ido (played by Christoph Waltz). However, the picture shown to us is of them being far from alone in the post-apocalyptic Earth of 2563.
The cunning and resourceful Vector (played by Mahershala Ali) is their major threat who is apparently known to have been working beneath the true “big bad” of the Alita franchise, who is considered to be Nova (played by Edward Norton) this time. In addition to that, they have another task to do which is related to Alita and Ido to contending with Ed Skrein’s Zapan.
Zapan has this reputation of an egotistical cyborg bounty hunter who would not really waste even little time remaining whilst engaging in a feud with the robotic heroine. Moreover, the thing which is mostly talked about connected to the franchise is the level of CGI which would be used in the franchise. It is currently hyped up and we hope it is worth the hype when we witness the movie in theaters.
