Battle Angel update!

09.15.2009

We've been caught up in the AVATAR whirlwind for so long now, we've almost forgotten about Cameron's "other" next potentially mind-blowing project, BATTLE ANGEL. And this bit of news from a source inside the Cameron camp (via Market Saw) is really the first we’ve heard of the project in eons. I’ll stop talking now, read on:

On what is happening right now for ANGEL:

"Make no mistake this is the movie your website will be pursuing in time to come. The tests are "Beautiful" and "Complex" beyond your wildest dreams. Stunningly beautiful, considering the fact that some are old(ish). Imagine this for a second. A cyborg chick "the Angel of Death" taking out "a lot" of other part man, part machine type "people."

On what those tests contain:

"Now picture the "Angel of Death" looking like a child. a 14 year old. Now imagine this, this little girl goes through these guys like butter. Did you see the KICK-ASS trailer? Well imagine that girl via the Matrix via Ghost in the shell, via AI. "Remember the True Lies bathroom brawl?" Well take out Arnold, and "copy and paste" Bruce Lee on acid via the Terminator. as seen through the eyes of a sweet innocent 14 year old cyborg girl. [Ed. Note: What did I just read there?] And all of this done via the mind of James Cameron, Holy shit what is not to love? The lights flicker and shit hits the fan. Awesome stuff."

On Angel's future:

"You will be hearing the phrase "Angel of death" a lot in time to come. At least judging from the level of involvement now. I bet Angel will go green soon. The only thing I can see setting back Angel is Avatar. And you know why that is don't you?"

The answer to that last question is, if AVATAR turns out to be a world ending success, BATTLE ANGEL could be put on hold to make way for sequels. But reading that synopsis, I’d much rather see teenage cyborg angel mass murder than an allegory about civil rights with blue aliens. But that’s just me.

Extra Tidbit: I don't think my excitement has ever ramped up this quickly for a project before.

Hypetrain was a rollin' all night long

'The tests are "Beautiful
" and "Complex" beyond your wildest dreams.'

Sounds a lot like the same stuff that was before Avatar was unveiled.

'Gunnm' is one of my most anticipated films of all time. Truly, I believe 'Avatar' was just a glorified screen test for the technologies to be used, and while I do want to see 'Avatar' I couldn't care less about it in light of Alita coming to the screen.

think this guy could kiss more ass?

Of corse it looks great and whatever. He works for Cameron, whatelse would he say? I think Avatar looks totally stupid and I really hope this doesnt turn into Dark Angel.

The shallow and brainless entertainment aspects of Battle Angel are all secondary. If you actually read and understood the manga, you'd know it's a deep story about the meaning of human life, and the way every individual person defines it. But since I trust Cameron more than any other director with the task of balancing philosophy and action, I am still confident he will do Battle Angel justice (at least the justice it can be done in 1 single movie).

Looking forward to this...

The original manga GUNNM is very violent. Brain-eating cyborg action. But I'm sure this'll be pussified to PG-13. Especially if she's 14. She looks more like 16 in the manga... with nice metallic curves lol.

Bruce Lee on acid via the Terminator, as seen through the eyes of a fourteen year-old girl? What the shit does that even mean?

I'll wait until AVATAR hits to decide if Cameron's truly back, or if he's just pulling a Lucas.

Whatever the case may be, we should all be thankful for James Cameron. He's out there creating entirely original movies and constantly pushing the envelope.

Sounds interesting, but I dont like the way that guy talks about the film. Its confusing, and he sound like a retard - put Im sure he's not, just trying to stay elusive. Anyways, Im glad Cameron is back, 12years is a long time to wait.

While I'll be seeing Avatar opening weekend, I'm still not drinking the Cameron kool-aid. And now we're gonna hype the shit out of a possible project before Avatar's even hit theaters? If Avatar flops, fanboys will have him for breakfast...
