IMAX has revealed the exclusive artwork for James Cameron, Jon Landau and Robert Rodriguez‘s ambitious new sci-fi epic, ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, out in cinemas nationwide on 6 February 2019.
Based on the manga series by Yukito Kishiro, ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL stars Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley and Keean Johnson, and showcases the talents of WETA Workshop.
IMAX will exclusively present nearly half the film with up to 26% more picture, as shown here. This takes audiences beyond the standard frame in standard cinemas and allows them to see more of the action on screen, as intended by the filmmakers, only in IMAX!
In addition to featuring IMAX expanded aspect ratio (26% more picture on screen), the IMAX release of “Alita: Battle Angel” will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognise, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realises 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.
