Alita: Battle Angel is a 2019 American cyberpunk action film based on the 1990s Japanese Manga series Gunnm (銃夢 Ganmu, literally “gun dream”), also known as Battle Angel Alita in its English translated versions. The Manga series is created by Yukito Kishiro and originally published from 1990 to 1995. The first two of the comic’s nine volumes were adapted in 1993 into a two-part anime original video animation.
For the 2019 version of director Robert Rodriguez and producer James Cameron, our Dutch pride in Hollywood, Junkie XL, delivered the score for the movie. In his YouTube series he shows the making of the score.
You can watch the original Manga movie from 1993 with English dub on YouTube.
This spring another very Japanese story will hit the cinemas: Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The trailer looks quite promising 🙂
