ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL | OFFICIAL HD TRAILER #3 | 2019.
In 2563, Earth is devastated by a catastrophic interplanetary war known as "The Fall" or "The Great War". 300 years later, in the junkyard metropolis of Iron City, scientist Dr. Dyson Ido discovers a disembodied female cyborg with an intact human brain. Ido attaches a new cyborg body to the brain, who has no memories, and names her "Alita" after his deceased daughter for whom he originally built the body. Alita awakens, and meets Dr. Chiren, Ido's estranged ex-wife, and befriends the charismatic Hugo, who dreams of moving to the wealthy sky city of Zalem. Hugo introduces Alita to Motorball, a battle royale sport played by cyborg gladiators. Secretly, Hugo robs cyborgs of their parts for Vector, owner of the Motorball tournament, to build his own unbeatable champion. One night, Alita follows Ido and discovers he is a Hunter-Warrior; they are ambushed by three cyborg serial killers led by Grewishka. Ido is injured, and Alita instinctively kills two of the cyborgs and damages Grewishka, who retreats underground. Despite Alita having rediscovered her past skill in the ancient martial art of "Panzer Kunst" (a German expression, meaning "the art of the armor" literally "armor art" ) Ido discourages her from becoming a Hunter-Warrior. Alita finds a highly advanced cyborg body in a crashed spaceship outside the city. Recognizing the body as a Berserker - lethal shock troops of the enemy United Republics of Mars (URM) - Ido refuses to install Alita in it. Frustrated, Alita mangles Ido's trolley and registers as a Hunter-Warrior. At the Kansas Bar, she and Hugo are unable to recruit other Hunter-Warriors to take down Grewishka. The narcissistic Zapan provokes Alita. She then severely beats him in a fight, triggering a chaotic bar brawl until Ido intervenes. An upgraded Grewishka arrives and challenges Alita to a duel, revealing he has been sent by Zalem's technocrat overlord, Nova, to destroy her. Despite her courage and combat skills, Alita's body is sliced up by Grewishka's chain-bladed fingers, but Ido, Hugo, and Hunter-Warrior McTeague force Grewishka to retreat. Ido transplants Alita into the Berserker body despite Dr. Chiren's objections, and discovers Alita is rather older than the teenager he assumed her to be due to the adaptive technology changing the body's proportions to match.
