Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing. Normally I would end the week with several extra nerd things but then this trailer came out and I need to take the time to talk about it. For years James Cameron has talked about making a movie from the Battle Angel Alita manga. And after years and years of talk it looks like he finally did it.
First of all let me say HOLY SHIT HER EYES LOOK SO CREEPY!!!
Now I know Battle Angel Alita has fans. Many years ago I checked out the manga to see what the big deal was. I found it to be one of the most unreadable pieces of graphic storytelling to ever exist. To this day I do not understand what the appeal of it is. I have no idea if this looks like something fans want or not. But I am impressed that after so many years of talking and false starts James Cameron finally managed to get this far on it.
