Fans have achieved reruns.
In 2019, a film by Robert Rodriguez based on Yukito Kishiro’s manga “Alita: Battle Angel” was released. The film grossed more than $ 400 million, received several Academy Award nominations and has an army of loyal fans. Army in the truest sense of the word. Alita fans call themselves Alita’s army. Over the past year, she has held several campaigns demanding the release of a sequel to the film. During the Academy Awards, a fan-hired plane flew over the red carpet with a poster demanding filming for a sequel.
And not so long ago “Alita’s army” organized a flash mob. There was a Twitter campaign urging all fans of the film to post on October 1 calling for a rerun of the film. Fans believe that some viewers may have missed the film and therefore did not fully appreciate it. And they hope that if the re-screening is successful, Disney will be interested in the idea of a sequel.
Against the background of massive transfers of premieres of films, the Cinemark cinema network decided to resume the screening of the film “Alita: Battle Angel” from October 30. There has been no official announcement yet, but it looks like another major US theater chain AMC Theaters will join the action. A page with the film “Alita: Battle Angel” and the date of the premiere on October 30 was also found on the company’s website. Thus, the “army of Alita” won another convincing victory.
