“What I think the Alita Army should do is keep peppering our family now at Disney and [let them know] how important it is to have another Alita movie and hopefully we’ll venture there one day.” – film producer Jon Landau
This is where you’ll receive your #AlitaNews updates.
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.
Another great sign of life in the Alita franchise!
On October 16th, the social media accounts for 20th Century Studios posted in promotion the Alita: Battle Angel re-release. This is the first time the 20th Century Studios account made any mention of Alita in over a year. There are strong signs of life in the franchise now.
As Cinemablend writer, Mike Reyes, says in a tweet:
The right people are listening now. Let’s continue making noise.
Alita: Battle Angel will be re-released in theaters on October 30th, on Halloween Eve. Let’s get the word out by dressing up as our favorite cyborg heroine and posting videos & pictures with the hashtag #GoWatchAlita! Please post your cosplays on or by October 29th and tell everyone that Alita is back in theaters!
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.”
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.
This is great news! Now Alita is being re-released by both Cinemark and AMC Theaters, two of the three largest theater chains in America. All eyes will be on Alita and her performance since the new blockbuster films have been delayed till next year, at least. If you’re excited for the news, let AMC Theaters know in the tweet below:
