There's a new graphic novel adaptation on the horizon, and it's name is "Alita: Battle Angel". Alita isn't mere junk, though, she's a trained assassin of the highest degree, and she'll have to battle to find out where she came from and what her goal is. If you're unfamiliar with the source materiel, the film is based on the Manga series "Gunnm" By Yukito Kishiro (available on Anybody who knows their music can probably guess her past, since "Lullaby For A Soldier", featured in the trailer, is a bit on the nose.

With Alita determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, deadly forces come after her and threaten her newfound relationships.
