Ever since James Cameron put all of his attention on the Avatar franchise, Alita: Battle Angel had been sitting on the back burner for as long as I could remember. Luckily, that all changed when he handed directing responsibilities over to Robert Rodriguez, who seemed to have the right sensibilities in order to bring the manga character to the big screen in a way that would honor the source material and their fans.

While the film was met with mixed reviews, most would say that the adaptation captured Alita and the futuristic world around her well. All those textures, the attention to detail, and the motion-capture work all speak to Cameron’s need to bring those characters and said world to audiences, and eliciting a wide-eyed and jaw-dropping reaction. Though the predictable narrative itself couldn’t support Alita: Battle Angel, the titular character’s journey of self-discovery is something worth watching. Check out my review of the film, plus some of the bonus feature that will be available, below.

Snowpiercer

San Diego Comic-Con is the perfect place to reveal the first trailer for the TBS adaptation of Snowpiercer, based on Bong Joon-ho‘s 2014 sci-fi film – which happens to be an adaptation of the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige.

Snowpiercer is set years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and centers on the last of humanity, who inhabit a train which has over 1,000 cars and never stops. It stars Hamilton‘s Daveed Diggs as the series protagonist, who will lead his fellow tail car passengers in a revolt against the high-class front car passengers. Check out the trailer below.

It was three and a half years ago now that we found out that a TV series based on the Bong Joon-ho movie Snowpiercer could be on the way. That TV show has traveled a slow road since then. A couple of years back we found out that the series would star Daveed Diggs and Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly. Last year we found out that TNT had given the show a full series order.

Now the Snowpiercer adaptation has a new home, moving from TNT to sister channel TBS, and has been given a second season. One whole year before its debut season even premieres.

Alita: Battle Angel Trailer

The release date for director Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel has been pushed back for far too long. But now it looks like it has finally settled on a release date. Though the film was set for a December release, it’s new date does give us a chance to get a better idea of what the film is.

While most know it as an adaptation of the manga of the same name, Alita’s Pinocchio-esque story is expected to be action-packed and thrilling, as noted by the very exciting new trailer. The film follows a scientist (Christoph Waltz) who discovers and rebuilds a damaged cyborg named Alita (Rosa Salazar). However, what Alita doesn’t realize is that she is has untold secrets. The kind of secrets very powerful people like Vector (Mahershala Ali) is after. Check it out, below.

20th Century Fox has released the second trailer for Alita: Battle Angel. The first trailer for the movie was released late last year.

The movie, which stars Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, and Keean Johnson, has been in the works for a while now, with Aliens, Terminator 2, Titanic, and Avatar director James Cameron attached to the project for nearly two decades now. Cameron ultimately wasn’t able to direct the movie, with his multiple Avatar sequels on the way, so Sin City and From Dusk Till Dawn director Robert Rodriguez took over that role. Cameron did, however, pen the screenplay along with Laeta Kalogridis and Rodriguez.
