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.

Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron team up for Alita: Battle Angel, a film that blends a cartoon character with human actors. Okay, Alita isn’t really a cartoon. She’s a CGI-enhanced character played by Rosa Salazar via motion capture. Still, there’s something a bit…off about watching Alita interact with a bunch of human characters.

It may not happen every day, but it’s not uncommon for the same actor to play multiple roles in a single movie. But how often have we seen the lead actor in a film also play an extra in the same film? That’s far more rare, but according to Rosa Salazar, the Alita: Battle Angel star who’s headlining Robert Rodriguez‘s adaptation of the acclaimed Japanese manga, we’re going to see it happen when she plays dual roles later this year.

This YA dystopian movie has everything: zombies, explosions, deadly missiles, and Giancarlo Esposito in a fabulous coat. Aiden Gillen’s also rocking a sweet turtleneck, but the fashion choices of the prestigious character actors is besides the point: the Maze Runner trilogy is officially reaching the end of the labyrinth.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure is closing out the YA dystopia series — admittedly, one of the better ones we’ve seen in the past decade — with a bombastic third and final act. That means the Gladers, led by Dylan O’Brien‘s Thomas, will be going back into the deadliest maze they’ve faced yet. Because as everyone knows, the only way to move forward is to go back.

The more we see TV shows like Baywatch and CHIPs turned into movies, the more realization sets in that the success of 21 Jump Street as a quality comedy was a small miracle.
While Baywatch doesn’t look bad, it just seems to be trying too hard to have the same blend of R-rated comedy and action that directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller delivered wonderfully with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. And now we have the first CHIPs trailer, revealing Dax Shepard (who also directs the comedy) and Michael Peña as unlikely partners in the California Highway Patrol. And if Baywatch is trying to be 21 Jump Street, than CHIPs is trying even harder to be its cool PG-13 cousin.
Watch the first CHIPs trailer after the jump. Read More »

Movie fans with long memories may recall that Alita: Battle Angel was once known as Battle Angel Alita and that it was supposed to be James Cameron‘s next film after Avatar. Then Cameron decided to make Avatar movies until the day he dies and the Hollywood adaptation of the popular manga was handed over to director Robert Rodriguez last year. Now, after years of existing primarily as the second-to-last question in James Cameron interviews, this project is finally starting to take shape. If the latest report is to be believed, we’ll see Rosa Salazar in Alita Battle Angel. Read More »
