" ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL took more than two decades to be made: James Cameron wanted to direct it himself and it was his passion project for a long time, but he had to give the helm over to Robert Rodriguez because of his commitments to Avatar sequels. Then there was also lots of trouble finding the actors (Jack Lowden, Douglas Booth and many actresses were in the run for the leads). Now the movie is finally here after the whooping sum of almost $200 USD million was spent on its production. Although the first reactions to the movie are positive, it will hardly return even a portion of that money especially after the recent tragic fall of Mortal Engines, another world building fantasy epic."

Just some "Melvin's" opinion. The first trailer I saw was enough to convince me to see it.

It's hard to say if 'Alita: Battle Angel' will succeed at the box office or be consigned to the scrap heap of cinematic obscurity a la 'Mortal Engines.' While its manga roots seem to suggest limited appeal in our era of blockbusters based on proven and well-known properties like Marvel and Star Wars, the facts that it's released at a time with few competition and that big names like James Cameron (producer) and Robert Rodriguez (director) are attached work in its favor.

Of course, Peter Jackson's name attached to 'Mortal Engines' as producer didn't help that movie at all, but it competed with 'Bumblebee,' 'Aquaman' and 'Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse' in the same timeframe.
