Thank you all for your contributions!
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!
Join us LIVE at 5:00 pm EST this Saturday, October 17. We will be discussing Alita’s cultural heritage in the film.
Rosa Salazar is on record multiple times saying that Alita is a Latina. What do you think? Will the films stray from the source material?
UPDATE (1/1/2020): The campaign has wrapped up. Please visit this page for details: https://alitaarmy.org/2020/11/01/rereleasealita-gowatchalita-campaigns-wrap-up/
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/

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:
As you can see, the bonus version has a swappable head. The alternate head is helmetless and has flowing hair.
