On a reported $200 million budget, and based on the Graphic Novel (or Manga) Series: "Gunnm" By Yukito Kishiro, Alita is the decade-plus brainchild of Cameron, who is now preparing multiple Avatar sequels.
Officer Who Shot & Killed Unarmed Daniel Shaver Has Been Acquitted
Mesa Police Officer Philip Mitchell Brailsford , 27, points his rifle at Daniel Shaver at La Quinta hotel in Arizona. His wife and parents are filing a wrongful death suit against the Mesa Police Department, according to Vice News .

'It's Been Humbling.' Matt Lauer Breaks Silence After Sexual Misconduct Allegations
In a statement from NBC management read out on Thursday's Today Show , the company rebuffed these claims. Alspaugh, who claims to be "very friendly" with Lauer, also reached out to her ex since the story broke.
Fox will release Alita: Battle Angel on July 20 in regular, 3D and IMAX theaters.
But also, this movie looks nuts-not just in terms of what Director Robert Rodriguez and Writer James Cameron are trying to pull off visually, but the cast alone: Rose Salazar in the title role, Mahershala Ali, Jennifer Connelly, Michelle Rodriguez, Christoph Waltz ... and that's just a start. It follows the story of an abandoned cyborg who is brought back to life by a "cyborg-doctor" (future jobs sound awesome!), but with a blank slate for who or what she is or was. Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships.
Set in the 26th century, Alita tells of a female cyborg (Salazar) that is discovered in a scrapyard by a scientist.
