Star Movies to premiere ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ on 16 Feb - nairrk - 02-14-2020

MUMBAI: English movie channel Star Movies will premiere ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ on 16th February at 1 pm and 9 pm. Adapted from Yukito Kishiro’s manga graphic novel, Alita is a gripping sci-fi thriller about a young cyborg who is on a journey of self-discovery to reclaim her memory.

The movie stars Rosa Salazar as a mysterious yet powerful teen girl bot with oversized anime-style eyes and a good heart. The inimitable cast also include Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, and Keean Johnson. The film is a visual treat as it features amazing special effects including the futuristic sport of Motorball which is central to the movie and is beautifully brought to life by the filmmakers.

Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic.

When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers to help trigger her memories.
