Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

I could have uploaded this image two months earlier, but since this forum offers zero space for image hosting and uploading an image to an image hosting site and linking it here is a pain in the ass, I was too bored to do it. This poster is undoubtedly cool and her eye size seems to be right. Perha...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

Not meaning to be negative here, but considering I've been feeling dread for the movie since Rodriguez was announced as director, I wasn't that surprised when I saw the trailer. As soon as I saw those huge Gollum eyes, I thought, "Yep. Seems about right." Having said that, I don't know whether I lik...

Great news, everyone! The film will begin shooting in Austin, Texas on October 17, 2016, and will continue filming until February 9, 2017. Budgeted at an estimated 175 - 200 million dollars , this will be hands down the biggest budget that Robert Rodriguez has ever had. Not even 4 months filming......

Re: Christoph Waltz in Talks to Star in James Cameron's 'Alita: Battle Angel

"Rosa Salazar" surprisingly her face is somewhat close to Alita's, with proper makeup she may be bearable. It's CGI, so the only make-up used is the computer program that's employed to render her face. So we should say, as long as Rosa's acting is good and the guys fiddling with the keyboards do a ...

Re: What Gunnm / Battle Angel stuff/merchandise do you have?

Gah; I hope James Cameron and Rovert Rodriguez make Alita a mostly CG character and that she's the real life version of these statues. For some reason I feel that getting Alita's look correct will be vital to conveying what so many people love about her. Extrapolating to what a "real world" Gally m...

Eh. I'm not picturing him, but then I've never seen his acting so... could be good. In an ideal world, I'd have Ted Danson play Ido and John Malkovich play Nova. Also interesting to see the name change Daisuke > Dyson (brings back Terminator memories). Wonder what other names will be changed (I'm th...

Thank you! I really enjoyed that. Kishiro sensei is a very wise man; his profundity is the main reason I love Gunnm. I particularly like what he says at the end: Work your sh*t and don't try to be perfect because that will make you less interesting. He's a very human man and that's why his fans love...

Hey, Rosa Salazar might not be such a bad choice, as far as appearances go: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/22/cb/4a/22cb4a3a4bb8d7faf15ad69f794375bc.jpg I mean, no actress is ever going to feel like the right choice to me, but this isn't bad. She certainly has the cuteness factor down.

I'm also of the opinion that the success or failure of this movie will be up to RR's cinematic talents.I don't think he has the spiritual depth of Cameron and that's why a lot of his movies come off as being too try-hard-badassy. Having said that, who knows, with Cameron producing, Rob may just get...

Re: Apparently Cameron has three candidates for the lead role in Alita: Battle Angel...

Agree, the other 2 are too tall and look nothing like the character. Plus, Rosa's got an edginess to her that feels more real. If she works hard at this, it could be her breakout role.

Cool, so is this Yukito Kishiro's Twitter page? (The English translation from the Japanese in the Tweets is a bit confusing, but I think in one he was pointing out his books on the shelf of a shop...)

Re: Live action movie release date set for July 20, 2018

I agree, she doesn't have the 'feel' of the character at all. However, if she is a good actress and can capture the emotional range of Alita, it wouldn't matter. As long as they do her up with all the CG and everything to look as much like the character as possible. I'm also of the opinion that the ...

She's probably mixed. Like, European with some Asian, like my friend (who also looks like Alita). So Eurasian.

Just remembered: I'm assuming whoever they cast will get extensive training in all sorts of martial arts etc (that's why they're casting 8 months in advance - 2017 is supposed to be the start of filming). So I don't think martial arts ability is all that important, more of a 'desirable criterion' th...

Re: Apparently Cameron has three candidates for the lead role in Alita: Battle Angel...

Regarding the age of the actress, I don't think casting a teenager is a good idea, if they intend on making sequels. The technology James Cameron has developed is age-neutral when it comes to skin tone BUT not when it comes to facial shape. A 14-year-old could look young in the first movie, but what...
