‘Alita Battle Angel’ to release in India before US


New Delh: James Cameron’s “Alita Battle Angel” will release in India on February 8 next year, a week before it opens in the US.

Fox Star Studios will release the film in India, a statement said.

Helmed by Robert Rodriguez, Cameron has produced the film with Jon Landau through his Lightstorm Entertainment banner.

Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis wrote the screenplay, based on Yukito Kishiro’s magna series. The story is set in a 26th century dystopian future and follows an amnesiac cyborg — played by Rosa Salazar — who is rescued from a scrap heap and becomes a bounty hunter tracking down criminals.

The cast also includes Jackie Earle Haley, Eiza Gonzalez, Lana Condor, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein and Jennifer Connelly.
