Alita: Battle Angel is set in a post-apocalyptic world in the 26th century, where society endures a technological dark age after a devastating war. The trailer shows Alita (Rosa Salazar), a cyborg with an organic human brain and an artificial body as she’s rescued from a junkyard by a scientist (played by Christoph Waltz) who later becomes her surrogate father. Alita then becomes a bounty hunter tracking down criminals as she tries to remember her mysterious past.
Salazar plays the titular character using a motion-capture suit.
Cameron, who has been looking to adapt the manga series since as far back as 2000, eventually handed directing duties to Rodriguez.
The film also features Mahershala Ali, Michelle Rodriguez, Jennifer Connelly and Jackie Earle Haley.
Alita: Battle Angel hits theatres on 20 July, 2018.
