With advance tickets now on sale for Alita: Battle Angel, the upcoming manga adaptation has released two new posters emphasizing the difference between seeing the film in IMAX theaters as opposed to traditional cinema screens.
The latest posters promise that nearly half of the film in IMAX presentations will feature 26 percent more picture in the larger frames that IMAX screens allow versus their traditional counterparts. To demonstrate this difference, the posters show the difference in aspect ratio and amount of picture between the two.
The cyberpunk action movie was filmed primarily in Austin with approximately 40 minutes of the film shot with IMAX 3D cameras, with director Robert Rodriguez and executive producer James Cameron intending the format to be the definitive way for audiences to view the final film.
With plenty of hard-hitting action seen in advance clips from the film, the ambitious action sequences are sure to get an extra energy on IMAX screens.
Directed by Robert Rodriguez, Alita: Battle Angel adapts Yukito Kishiro's popular manga Battle Angel Alita. It will arrive in theaters on February 14. The film stars Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, Keean Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Lana Condor and Eiza González.
