The Live-Action ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL's Concept Art Is Simultaneously Alluring And Futuristic

With an estimated production budget of $170 million USD, the odds of Alita: Battle Angel receiving a sequel are likely 50/50. The fact that Disney now owns Fox is another key factor muddying the waters.

Alita: Battle Angel has finally fallen out of the Top 10 domestic films, falling to 15 in its 7th week of release with $500,000 USD.

Overseas, it earned an additional $747,000 USD, bringing its worldwide weekend haul to $1.247 M USD. Solid numbers for a film in its 7th week of release, however, it currently sits at $402.5million worldwide.

Two separate reports by respected box office analysts have identified the magic, break-even number for Alita to be either $400 million or $500 million. The movie has no shot at reaching the second number but even if the break-even point is $400 million, one has to imagine that Disney is interested in films that merely break even, looking at its past, present and future film slate.

If the film doesn't move forward with the sequel it heavily teased, we'll always have this awesome concept art. Head over to our sister site,, to view the gallery by CLICKING HERE or the image below.

From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (AVATAR) and Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY), comes ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.
