We have to wait until Valentine’s Day to see Robert Rodriguez‘s Alita: Battle Angel but a new extended clip introduced by producer James Cameron gives us a look at “motorball” and some of the crazy cyborg-on-cyborg action we can expect from the live-action adaptation of Yukito Kishiro‘s popular manga series.
The movie premiered at the Leicester Square Theatre in London and singer-songwriter Dua Lipa, whose “Swan Song” appears on the soundtrack for the movie, was on hand to help Cameron figure out how to take selfies.
