This is the second video in my series about Alita: Battle Angle and my trip to WETA Digital, in Wellington, New Zealand sponsored by 20th Century Fox. In this installment, I’m talking with stars Rosa Salazar (Birdbox, Maze Runner) and Academy Award Winner Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained) about their experience creating the groundbreaking film. Christoph was quick to point out that contrary to popular belief, Alita is not an effect driven film, but that the technology merely enhances the actor’s performance. The advances in motion capture technology now allow actors like Rosa and Ed Skrein to create memorable performances. Check out the full interview below!
