    The anime/manga turned live action directed by James Cameron is still a LONG ways off. But this teaser should suffice for now, beware it's got some nipple shots so don't watch this at work.

    I think the boards should have a different policy regarding nudity, a strict one against pornography...but nudity that isn't pornographic in nature shouldn't be frowned upon.

    I think the lawsuit-happy parents out there would disagree with you, Gabe. It's honestly best not to take chances, especially on a message board where minors are posting.

    I saw it. Nothing happens. It would be cool to see some robotic ass kicking.

    I wonder how the translation from anime/manga to live action will be. I think Alita is all CG too.

    Hey -rules are rules.

    I am looking for it on my own now.
    I hope it goes for the same style as 300\Sky Captain, but I'm keeping my mind open.

    So wait, James Cameron is making a movie, with the term Angel in the title, based on some super powered girl in a future apocolyptic time with high tech gadgets and what not..didn't he already do this with Dark Angel..That said, isn't it kinda like al lhis movies? Strong woman, doom and gloom future, hope springs eternal=$$$$$$

    There was a time when I would be first in line for a new Cameron film, but Titanic and the fact that he's made bugger all in the way of movies for 10 years makes me highly dubious.

    I can't imagine what you would want the man to do, he's got original properties left and right. He's started franchises (Terminator), done blockbusters (T2, Aliens), action (True Lies), romance that turned into mega blockbuster (Titanic), one of the single best sci-fi movies ever (The Abyss), and breathtaking documentaries (Expedition: Bismark, Aliens of the Deep).

    He's got a pretty diverse directorial and production portfolio. Battle Angel is the first film he is adapting from someone else's material.

    Yes, but Yukito Kishiro did it first with the Battle Angel manga back in the early 90s (of which I am a big fan). There's also a two episode OAV that somewhat reproduces the first two graphic novels. It's from 93 I believe and has some amazing animation.

    Cameron's had the rights to this movie for nearly a decade. And if he can reproduce any of the kinetic battles from the manga onto the big screen you'll be blown away!

    And Battle Angel/Alita is the American name of the story. It was originally called Gunnm in Japan, roughly translated into "Gun Dream."

    I will go back into my geek shell now.

    James Cameron can do anything he wants to, and I will watch this. I dont know anything about the subject matter, but it doesnt really matter. Cameron is pretty good at sci fi stuff.

    Just checked out the teaser. I hope it's valid. Says that Dany Verissimo, the hot sister from the French action/parkour movie B-13 is playing Gally/Alita. Nice casting choice, if this is indeed true.

    ALita... can she make the transition to the bigscreen from manga?..... i dunno bout that.... (should be a mini-series rather than a movie) the story is too deep to be condensed into a 2hour long flick...

    Just saw the nipple teaser never read or watched anything related to Gunnm but the teaser is very nice, I'll be keeping an eye out.

    *Checks Battle Angel manga collection on shelf*

    Please Mr Cameron dont rape my favorite manga series... the creator already messed up the ending (Im not a fan of Final Order).

    Watched the teaser... ok, hot former porn actress playing Alita is interesting.
