Alita Battle Angel Eyes

You’ve seen the trailer for Alita: Battle Angel right? It’s the sci-fi movie produced by James Cameron and directed by Robert Rodriguez featuring a robot girl warrior with eyes so big that they look like her tears could drown a fish. Okay, glad we’re on the same page.

It turns out that the eyes on the titular character in Alita: Battle Angel (played by Rosa Salazar, who has normal human eyes) were so big that James Cameron asked that they be fixed after the first trailer was released. However, he didn’t want them fixed to be smaller. Instead, they were actually tweaked to be a bit bigger. Find out what the Avatar filmmaker had to say about the Alita Battle Angel eyes below.

james cameron 3d

3D may be rapidly losing popularity and theaters, but James Cameron is still convinced that this technology is the future of cinema. The director helped revive 3D technology with his groundbreaking, lavish 2009 sci-fi film Avatar, but unfortunately, few films has lived up to the potential of 3D since then.
