Swooping in for the Swan Song.
Alita: Battle Angels release is on the near horizon, and producer Jon Landau has announced that Brit artist Dua Lipa will be co-creating the anthem “Swan Song” for the movie.
“From the moment we saw her video for ‘New Rules,’ we knew that Dua Lipa would be the perfect artist to do a song for Alita: Battle Angel. She has the kick-ass strength, power and attitude in her performances that Alita embodies in the movie. Jim, Robert and I are thrilled to have her on board and are confident she will make ‘Swan Song’ the perfect inspiring and empowering anthem for our film.” said Producer Jon Landau.
Dua Lipa’s new single “Swan Song” has been created with the talented writing of Justin Tranter,
“I am intrigued at both Alita herself, and the amazing team of creators that came together to make this movie possible. I see a little of myself in her, in both her badass spirit and our shared haircut. Alita is all about empowerment and standing up for who you are, which are two things that resonate with me.” said Dua Lipa.
From visionary filmmaker James Cameron, best known for films such as Avatar, Aliens, and the Terminator comes the live action version of the classic Manga series “GUNNM” by Yukito Kishiro. Starring Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, and Jennifer Connelly, there is some real Hollywood star-power helping to bring this adventure to life.
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.
