Alita: Battle Angel Trailer Finally Gives Us a Look at Motorball.

A third Alita: Battle Angel trailer has arrived, and at long last, we get a look at Motorball.

Perhaps of the biggest note is that the “uncanny valley” of Alita’s eyes have been dialed back even further since the second trailer. And luckily those were even a dial back from the first trailer.

While the original mangas and anime of Alita did have her eyes larger than humans, in a live-action film it definitely had an unsettling effect. As the film draws closer to release it looks as though more work is being done and its getting better by the day.

Now, the new trailer introduces us to the sport of Motorball in what looks as though it will be a centerpiece moment of the film.

The more we see, the higher our hopes get for this film.

When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.

Alita: Battle Angel hits theaters on Feb. 14, 2019.
