First trailer for Alita: Battle Angel

According to Den of Geek, Alita: Battle Angel

hails from Japan, where the successful manga spawned a 90s anime adaptation. It tells the story of a cyborg heroine, Gally, who’s rescued from a scrapheap by a kindly scientist. A confused innocent in a violent cyberpunk world, Battle Angel follows the athletic heroine as she searches for the secret of her own past.

The film is directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron, who also has a writing credit. The first trailer is out and it looks really stunning.

CGI heavy films often suffer from the Uncanny Valley effect, but if the trailer is anything to go by, it looks like Cameron and Rodriguez have solved that problem spectacularly.
