PS: We raised the funding for the billboard in less than an hour! Congratulations #AlitaArmy! You are awesome! But the fundraiser is still going on! With the excess money we collect we can donate half of that towards "Feeding America" and the other half will be funneled into advertising the rerelease of Alita on Youtube. The more we raise the further we can advertise her. This translates directly into more impressions and subsequently into more butts in the seats!
Remember that GoGetfunding will keep a bit of the raised money from every transaction as a fee from the amount collected. Check out the link at the bottom for details.
ll fans of the amazing 2019 cyberpunk classic Alita: Battle Angel should know by now that the #AlitaArmy fandom persuaded Cinemark cinemas into re-releasing the movie at Halloween 2020 with a dedicated twitter campaign.
#AlitaArmy, Alita-Fans everywhere, Alita: Battle Angel will come back to cinemas in the US on Halloween starting from October the 30th. Fans joined forces on Twitter to get Cinemark to rerelease Alita and they got heard. And soon after Cinemark officially committed to bringing Alita back to theaters, AMC followed up. And if that isn’t enough good news the director Robert Rodriguez, Jon Landau and James Cameron himself endorsed this rerelease and acknowledged the #AlitaArmy. Ladies and Gentlemen, we are now official. At this point, it needs to be said, that we have come a long way and I am very proud of you all and the support you pulled up for Alita for soon to be 2 years. Thank you!
But this isn’t just a congratulation. This second wind for Alita is also an opportunity to right the wrongs of 2019. A lot of people missed out on this amazing movie and this is the second chance for them to see Alita as it was meant to be. On the big screen. To make this a success people need to know about this. And we need to build up the hype. And it is not just on Cameron or Cinemark but also on us to achieve that.
But it is not just that we get a rerelease. A lot of eyes are set on it. So this might be the ticket to get our very long desired sequel. If there was any time to strike than it would be now.
And there is even more to that. 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. And to make sure this turns out to be a success we need to get as many butts in the seats as possible. Therefore we decided to raise money for a billboard in Orlando, Florida. The billboard will be located on a highway close to an AMC theater and be very close to the Disney resort parks and headquarters. There is a lot of traffic and therefore lots of eyeballs get to know about the upcoming re-release.
We need to raise $1587 to fund the billboard. The fees of Gogetfunding are also covered in the sum. You can read about their calculations here:
The option to overfund is enabled. Every dollar that is raised beyond the target sum will be split into two. One half will go to "Feeding America". The other half will be funneled into funding an Alita rerelease Youtube ad. So we do not just have boots on the grounds in Orlando. We also promote Alita to a large audience online.
To boost the voice further we will also campaign on Twitter on the 22nd of October and attempt to make the #GoSeeAlita trending. The billboard will be started 2 days prior on the 20th of October and hopefully gets additional coverage on Twitter then.
All in All. This will be the most important campaign we ever did. I hope you all join this quest. Thank you for reading.
Last but not least. Stay save when you go to the theaters.
