Don't underestimate Alita -- or you will be making the biggest mistake of your life.

Check out the brand-new trailer for "Alita: Battle Angel," the upcoming sci-fi action epic from visionary filmmakers Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron.

The film, which stars Rosa Salazar (Maze Runner, Insurgent) as the title character, performed entirely in motion capture, is based on the popular cyberpunk manga and anime series "Gunnm (aka Battle Angel Alita)" by Japanese artist Yukito Kishiro.

Set in a dystopian future, the story revolves around a wide-eyed cybernetic girl named Alita (Salazar), who is salvaged from a metal scrapyard and reconstructed by a brilliant cyborg specialist named Dr. Dyson Ido (played by Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz). Alita soon goes on a quest in search of her true identity, only to discover that she not only possesses incredible fighting skills, but has all the makings of being the greatest warrior the world has ever seen.

Co-starring Oscar-winners Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind) and Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) along with Keean Johnson (TV's Nashville) as Alita's human boyfriend with Ed Skrein (Deadpool) and Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver) as a couple of deadly cyborg villains, "Alita: Battle Angel" is directed by Robert Rodriguez from a screenplay that had been developed for over 15 years by James Cameron, who serves as a producer.

Though originally scheduled for a December release, "Alita: Battle Angel" is now slated to open theatrically nationwide on February 14, 2019.

Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships. It is then that Alita discovers she has extraordinary fighting abilities that could be used to save the friends and family she’s grown to love. Determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, Alita sets out on a journey that will lead her to take on the injustices of this dark, corrupt world, and discover that one young woman can change the world in which she lives.
