Personally I was surprised to see the trailer today. Guess I've been living under a rock because I had no idea they were working on it. I liked the anime when it came out but then I got REALLY into the manga source material, having read all of them multiple times over. It's an unbelievably good story with a very rich world from which to draw upon. Plenty of material for this to be a franchise if the first one proves successful. The anime barely covered the first book.
I wish they continued on with the anime series and think this one might lend itself better to that format, but I'll take what I can get I suppose. Kind of a bold move to keep Alita's manga big eyes, but after seeing the trailer I gotta admit...I think I like it.
I too, am not a huge fan of over-CGI'd stuff these days, but this is a story that just might call for that, even if it does look odd at first. Again, it's a great story, so if Rodriguez and Cameron can do the source material justice, the film might have shot if raging internet nerds don't shoot it down first, killing the franchise off early unnecessarily like so many others.
