German Boxer Regina Halmich Joins ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Star Rosa Salazar In Berlin
The next film from Academy Award winner James Cameron is almost here. Slated to premiere on February 14, Alita: Battle Angel tells the story of Alita, a superior human who wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world destroyed by a technological fallout. The titular character will be played by Rosa Salazar, while Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz joins as her companion, Dr. Ido. The film is based off of the manga series, Battle Angel Alita, by Yukito Kishiro.
Beginning their promotional tour, Salazar and the rest of the cast were pictured Wednesday at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate. Also in attendance was Regina Halmich, the 42-year-old boxing superstar from Germany. Here, the boxer is pictured with Salazar, 33, as the two of them take on a menacing pose.
Alita: Battle Angel is the first lead role for Salazar, whose previous credits include recurring roles in NBC’s Parenthood and FX’s American Horror Story. She was joined at the Berlin event by co-star Waltz, as well as producer Jon Landau and director Robert Rodriguez. The Berlin event is set to be followed by a preview event in the United States on Thursday.
