Alita: Battle Angel Digital and Blu-ray Releases Set for July

-

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced the Alita: Battle Angel Digital and Blu-ray release dates. The film will be available on Digital July 9th and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD July 23rd. You can pre-order the title now.

From Academy Award winners James Cameron and Jon Landau, and visionary filmmaker Robert Rodriguez comes Alita: Battle Angel, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this discarded cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. When deadly and corrupt forces come after Alita, she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.

The action-packed film, also starring Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, and Keenan Johnson has scored $405 million at the global box office.

Now with hours of extensive special features the home entertainment release takes you behind the scenes with James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez to see the journey from Manga to Screen and what it took to bring Alita to life. Plus, go deeper into the universe of Alita: Battle Angel, where you’ll learn about the past, the characters of the present, and the thrilling sport of Motorball.
