We can’t wait to see this movie!

From the creators of ‘Avatar’ and ‘Titanic’ comes the new film, ‘Alita: Battle Angel’, in cinemas February 14.

Set in the 26th century, the film follows Alita and her journey to discover the truth of who she is and her fight to change the world.

Smallzy sat down with director Robert Rodriguez, producer Jon Landau and actress Rosa Salazar (who plays the title character) in LA to chat about the film, its epic set, and how they hardly used a green screen during filming.

Yep, you read that correctly.

The cast said that they had “97,000 square feet of actual practical iron city to play with” - we are as shocked as you are!

Rosa also went into depth about playing a cyborg, acting with a performance capture helmet and having “nowhere to hide” with two high definition cameras so close to her face.

That’s some intense stuff!

While it may be a high-budget film, producer Jon Landau made the point that the movie industry is the one business in the world “that doesn’t charge you more for more”.

But hey, how was the on-set catering?
