Get ready to unlock a new world in Twentieth Century Fox’s ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment from visionary filmmakers James Cameron (AVATAR) and Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY) and the latest film to receive an exclusive trailer for Industry Trust’s Moments Worth Paying For campaign.


“You can’t bring a story like Alita to life without pushing boundaries,” says producer/co-writer Cameron, who presents the piece to camera. He talks through the state-of-the-art projection, cutting edge visual effects and incredible sound in the action-packed film, and how seeing it on the big screen is the only way to experience a movie of Alita’s scale and heart.


The Industry Trust’s consumer education campaign continues to deliver the core message – inspiring audiences to choose the big screen experience. Like the others in the Moments Worth Paying For series, the trailer directs audiences to the industry-funded film search engine, FindAnyFilm.com, which signposts legal content sources, so they can book, buy and watch at their convenience.

Alita: Battle Angel comes to UK cinemas on February 6, 2019.


SYNOPSIS:
When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens in a future world she does not recognise, with no memory of who she is, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realises 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.

That's Not A Knife - Official Trailer - An actor's journey to Hollywood - Inspired by Paul Hogan


The first trailer for That’s Not a Knife, featuring Christian Isaiah (“Shameless”), Aaron Jeffrey (X-Men Origins : Wolverine), and Andy McPhee (Wolf Creek) , has been released ahead of the documentary’s 2019 premiere.

Written and directed by Shaun A Robinson, That’s Not a Knife is a documentary about the hard and often unglamorous life of an actor. It explores the difficulties of succeeding in the industry and starting relationships.

Here’s the story of an actor who fights back against the odds by overcoming his own fears and creating his own path to Hollywood, documenting his journey along the way. He meets other actors who share their own fears and insecurities with him, helping help him to understand his own journey better and inspire others to do the same.


The film’s inspiration – it might go without saying- is Paul Hogan. The legendary actor is one of Australia's biggest exports, and became a household name with his irresistible comic performance in Crocodile Dundee in 1986, helping pave the way for many Aussie actors who followed in his footsteps. Aussie actors such as Robinson, who, very much like Hogan, made his Hollywood debut at a later stage in life (Shaun was 35 when he started acting).

The documentary includes sit-downs with such talent as Aaron Jeffries (‘’McLeod's Daughters’’, Chopper, The Operator), Shane Connor (‘’Neighbours’’, ‘’Fire’’), Christian Isaiah (‘’Shameless’’), and Kym Jackson (Ten Days in the Valley).

“That’s Not a Knife” is an independently and privately financed project and is looking for sponsorship from local companies who wish to support the independent film industry and have their logo appear in all “TNAK” Marketing and Apparel, and be credited in the film.

“The film developed out of Shaun sitting around waiting for his next job as an Actor to come along. Instead of continuing to wait, he was inspired to go out and create his own work and to silence the voice we all hear that tells us we’re not good enough”, says actor Andy McPhee, known for his roles in such classic Australian films as Wolf Creek and Animal Kingdom.

N.C.I.S actor Michael Welch says, “Getting to share part of my acting journey and showing that the business of acting is damn hard, is something we rarely get to do as actors unless you are an A list star. This film will show you the ups, the downs and the downright crazy stuff you have to endure to follow your chosen path of being a working actor.”

Lucinda Bruce produces with Gina Stoj associate producing.
Matt Nable has also just joined the cast.
