We have fully launched our campaign to promote the re-release of Alita: Battle Angel at Cinemark and AMC Theaters (and possibly others). We will be paying for a billboard in Orlando, Florida. And, if we have enough funding, we will also be paying for an ad on YouTube. The fundraiser is being managed by @Foxfire40900590. Below are some of his words from the fundraiser page:
“Most of you know that cinemas are in deep trouble right now. But the re-releases of recent popular movies might be the thing that could change the tide. And Alita: Battle Angel is one of the big blockbusters of 2019 which will be on the forefront. If this works out other recent blockbusters might follow and give cinema chains the necessary breathing room they need until the new ones finally arrive. So literally we might help to save jobs. And we on the other side get to enjoy our beloved Battle Angel once more on the big screen.”
We will need $1587 for the billboard. The YouTube ad will be funded using money that is raised after the billboard is paid for. Read more and donate at the fundraiser page: https://gogetfunding.com/rereleasealita-advertising-campaign/
We also have a trending event scheduled for October 22 at 7:00 am EST. We will tweet #GoWatchAlita to get the word out about the re-release. The page for that event is here: https://alitaarmy.org/2020/10/06/alita-is-back-in-cinemas-help-us-get-the-word-out-by-trending/
UPDATE (10-16-20): The Billboard & YouTube Ad Fundraiser For The Alita Re-release Has Ended Successfully. With a total of $3,864, the campaign has been funded and is moving into the next phase. With $1587 going toward the billboard, the remaining funds will be split with 50% going to advertising the re-release on YouTube and the rest going to Feeding America.
