We’re already almost halfway through November, and with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald within spitting distance of its release and the holiday season right around the corner, audiences are gearing up for the bigger movies to start hitting alongside the typical Oscar-bait-type fare. With that in mind, it’s hard to believe that 20th Century Fox had actually expected to release the relatively unknown property Alita: Battle Angel in this climate. Bullet dodged.

The film is set to hit theaters this coming February now, giving it space to actually make some actual cash when it hits. But, this also gives them a bit more extra time to get some marketing done, and though we’ve already seen a couple trailers for the film, it looks like another one is on the way, as is revealed in this new tweet from the studio, which teases another trailer.

As you can see, the trailer features an abundance of new footage, but the couple of shots that really stand out are those from the others are those that show Alita playing Motorball, a sport that’s all the violent sport that’s all the rage in Alita’s world. Some footage was shown off at New York Comic-Con earlier this year, with Rodriguez saying at a panel:

“Jim said those who are fans of the graphic novel would be pretty disappointed if Motorball wasn’t in this movie. So he found a really cool Jim way to incorporate it, and it’s really badass.”

We’ll be able to get a better glimpse tomorrow when the full trailer drops, hopefully.

Alita: Battle Angel hits theaters on February 14, 2019.
