Alita: Battle Angel is a cyberpunk action film based on Yukito Kishiro’s Japanese manga series “Gunnm,” which he appeared in with Markie Pitzpatrick in 2016. He also appeared in the comedy-drama film “Heritage Falls” in 2016, and he appeared as Hugo in the cyberpunk action film “Alita: Battle Angel” in 2019. James Cameron produced and co-wrote the script with Laeta Kalogridis as co-screenwriter, which stars Rosa Salazar as Alita. The storey revolves around Alita, a cyborg hero who wakes in a new body with no knowledge of her previous life. Although the picture was announced in 2003, work on “Alita” did not begin until mid-2016 owing to Cameron’s obligations to “Avatar” and other projects at the time. In the United Kingdom, it opened on January 31, 2019, while in the United States, it premiered on February 14, 2019. It has earned more than $404 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing picture directed by Robert Rodriguez.
