Plot Summary: The year is 2356, three hundred years after the catastrophic war known as "The Fall". In the junk metropolis of Iron City, Dr. Dyson Ido discovers a disembodied female cyborg with an intact human brain. He rebuilds the cyborg and names her "Alita". As Alita struggles to remember her past life, she discovers that she has hidden fighting techniques within her and decides to follow Ido's footsteps as a hunter-warrior.

James Cameron and Twentieth Century Fox held the film rights to Battle Angel Alita since 1999 - with Fox registering several website domain names related to the title as early as 2000, but the live-action adaptation was put on indefinite hold due to Cameron's commitment to the 2009 film Avatar and its upcoming sequels. In 2015, production proceeded after Robert Rodriguez was announced as the film's director.
With a worldwide earning of over US$400 million and a Rotten Tomatoes approval rating of 60%, Alita: Battle Angel is the highest grossing and highest rated live-action adaptation of an anime or manga by the western film industry.
