Fox Pushes Back Alita: Battle Angel & The Predator

Fox has pushed back the release dates for Alita: Battle Angel and The Predator.

Visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) create a groundbreaking new heroine in Alita: Battle Angel, an action-packed story of hope, love and empowerment.

What's interesting about this change is that it now puts it in direct competition with Warner Brothers' latest entry into the DCEU, Aquaman, and Paramount's Transformers spin-off, Bumblebee.

Shane Black's Predator reboot is switching places with fellow Fox title The Darkest Minds, with the latter hitting theaters August 3 and the former taking the September 14 slot.

Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. The film is directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron and Jon Landau from a screenplay by Cameron, Rodriguez, and Laeta Kalogridis.

We're all excited for Shane Black's The Predator.

Here's the Alita: Battle Angel synopsis. With Alita determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, deadly forces come after her and threaten her newfound relationships. Given that both of these films are already part of popular existing franchises and Alita: Battle Angel is a new property based on a cult anime, its likely that it may struggle to find an audience. Official plot details are still scarce, but the upcoming reboot has an impressive cast that includes Sterling K. Brown, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Jane, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jacob Tremblay.

Fox also said the Blue Sky animated film "Foster" will open on March 5, 2021. The film will bring back Branagh's Detective Hercule Poirot, as he investigates a whole new murder mystery. As our fearless leader Simon Brew points out, the movie's now undergoing a round of reshoots, so it seems likely the production needs a few more weeks for editing and so forth.
