Video+Story – Alita: Battle Angel review & audience reaction at Alamo Drafthouse

We have been promised an Alita Battle Angel movie for several years. James Cameron had it on his plate to make but then he got busy with Avatar and making the sequels to that blockbuster. He enlisted the help of his friend Robert Rodriguez.

Robert had a daunting challenge ahead of him to make the movie capture the human side of Alita while still having stunning special effects that capture all the action of the manga.

The story is your typical love story between two people from very different backgrounds. Robert Rodriguez was able to walk that fine line between making you care about the main character while also blowing you away with action and graphics. The two hours seemed to whiz by.

Keep your eyes open for an uncredited appearance from a prominent actor near the end. The movie also leaves it wide open for the possibility of a sequel. So far, Alita is performing better than expected at the box office so the probability of a sequel is pretty high.

We admittedly have not read the manga for Alita so we can’t speak to it’s accuracy to the source material. Let us know if the movie is true to the manga. Do you agree with us that it is a very entertaining and action packed movie? Let us know in the comments.

TNTM: Dark Horse Comics to publish Avatar Comics

Avatar finally getting comic book treatment

Avatar Comic
Avatar Comic

Avatar, the blue cat looking people not the air-bender, is finally going to get the comic book that was promised way back at New York Comic Con 2015.

Dark Horse Comics and 20th Century Fox have teamed up to put the continuing Avatar story onto the printed page.  The comic book will present story arcs from points all over the Pandora timeline, before, after, and even during the events of the movie.

We will see the first issue of this long-awaited series on Free Comic Book Day this year, May 6th, 2017.

The story is set during the events of the film as a “comic book exclusive scene” with Jake preparing for the final battle in the Pandorian War.

Jake Sully strengthens the bond with the Great Leonopteryx by recalling memories of his brother.  

The Avatar Free Comic Book Day story launches the beginning of a new line of Avatar comics and graphic novels scheduled to hit shelves in late 2017.

In 2015, James Cameron had the following to say about the partnership with Dark Horse Comics:

“Here at Lightstorm Entertainment, we’re in the midst of a massive undertaking, three new feature films that will take you back to the world of Avatar and reveal more of the mysteries and wonders of Pandora. But even with three sequel in the works, we still have more stories we want to tell. So Lightstorm will be working in partnership with Dark Horse Comics to reveal new storylines from the past, present and the future world of Avatar. Fly with me, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the world of Pandora.”
