Saw it in Dolby Cinema 3D on Saturday. It was awesome. Hope we get some more Dolby 3d movies. It was bright and sharp. Not fond of the glaases though

Just watched the trailer and this is one of 2 highly regarded movies of late that I will not bother to watch - the other being Ready Player One.
Both of them are just video games - not movies.

That's pretty unfair with respect to Alita. Massive sets were constructed, large costumed casts employed: the filmmakers wanted to ground it in reality as much as possible, even as they were obviously reliant on CGI VFX. Alita's performance capture is just stunning, up there with Andy Serkis's work.

I guess I was assuming all the pre-orders had been "filled" already as the reason for being sold out. Also, I was assuming Dew42's edit of 02/06/19 was when he posted those links but I will keep checking on it just to be sure.

amazon was allowing pre-orders. They have since stopped. There is likely confusion about if a 3D Blu-ray will be released. It is a bit of a guessing game played by the stores as they want to get the pre-orders early enough to catch the sales. They don't seem to wait for official word from the studio.

I think Fox's last 3D movie was Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children on September 2016. Hard to predict what Fox will do.

Once amazon has more details, either the pre-order will go back up or those that had pre-orders will have their orders canceled. You didn't miss anything.

If you are eyeing Zavvi's exclusives, those do sell out. But I expect Zavvi is just backing off, like amazon, for now.

thank you for filling in with more detail. i wanted to help him but wasnt real sure as i just went to all the places on the list above looking to score my copy. but after doing a little research realized the movie just came out and put 2 + 2 together. also sadly i thought that since it just came out i may look to see if its availiable in my area in imax 3d and it is but only until thursday and then gone while another movie takes the big stage so i miss out on both accounts hahaha. hopefully i can grab the bluray if and when it comes in 3d.

It has the 4K and 3D version on one disc. That's why it's sold out...not just for 3D version.

Perfectly acceptable to dislike the movie (plenty of critics Stateside are also down on it), I was just objecting to the characterization of it as "just a video game," when the filmmakers went to such care in building physical sets and so on. It's not just a wall-to-wall green screen production.

For what it's worth I *loved* this film; I've seen it 3 times and find something more to like about it with each additional viewing. The action set pieces do not disappoint, but what really works are the emotional beats, and the all-too-human character of Alita trying to make her way in the world and discover (or create for herself) her identity.

Naturally YMMV.

Ah, good to know thanks.

Cameron and even Rodriguez were really pushing 3d viewing for theaters plus I believe most if not all of Alita was shot in native 3d.

I saw this at the TCL Chinese Theater and noticed there aren't any 2d screenings at all, (for the BIG screen). Usually they would have 2d screening times as well as 3d.

So hopefully we will get a 3d blu ray release, maybe even a Best Buy 3d release? I've been bummed out that as soon as I finally get my first projector with 3d capabilities the 3d market starts to disappear lol I hate having to order from foreign markets.

I'm sure Cameron wants it released in 3d too!

My comment on it being a video game was in relation to Alita herself - she looks like an animation added to a real film rather than a CGI character - just like Jessica Rabbit really. And just watching the trailer did my head in - it may be a good movie but I know I won't be able to get over that aspect of it. That and because we know she isn't real it makes the action scenes (to me) less exciting. Which is waht I disliked about Ready Player One also - VR motorcycles pulling amazing stunts is not exciting when you know it's VR.

Saw it a few days ago, thought it was dope! I knew the cliffhanger ending was coming, and wasn't a huge fan of it - but as far as how much they had to cram in - I thought they told a pretty decent story, and the action sequences were super superb. Her kicking ass with missing appendages? Slicing faces off!? Dropping an F bomb or two!? I dug it, mini-heavily. I will be purchasing, lol.

Oh, so the 4k (which includes 3D) pre-orders are already sold out? Amazon UK doesn't have it available for preorder which is a bummer.

Me too, I really want this now. Robert Rodriguez is a great director and the source material looks interesting and I liked the look of the trailers. So disappointed that it's already sold out and it hasn't even been released yet, who ever heard of such a thing with 4k/UHD releases. Hopefully they don't remove the 3D if they end up with a second run.

I thought this was pretty similar to Valerian […] stunning, but stupid. This one would have worked without the teenage love interest who was every cliché from every popcorn movie ever made.

edit: and I went out of my way to see it in the last local theater still showing in 3d. And the 3d really was top notch. Made me feel bad about what I have at home. I was the only one in the theater until right up to show time so I went up to look at the screen because it seemed like there was something off in the preshow image. It was a reflective metal screen with fairly large perforations that were actually visible from the back row. And the hole pattern was not angled like a bias cut fabric. Straight vertical rows. Seemed an odd choice. Maybe in a bigger room they would not be visible, but here they were.

I loved ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL my review
Alita: Battle Angel" is big and fun entertainment
From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (AVATAR) and Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY), 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 abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that 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.

James Cameron, Robert Rodriguez and producer Jon Landau have crafted something special and its one of those films worth seeing in 3D. Trust me, the visual effects are insane, the action set pieces are easy to follow and well shot, and Rosa Salazar is fantastic as Alita.
Finally, if you live near an IMAX theater, I strongly recommend seeing Alita in IMAX 3D because you will get to see about 26% more image in a number of scenes. Alita also stars Jennifer Connelly (Good looking as ever), Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, and Jackie Earle Haley.

Alita accomplished the goals of bringing the cybernetic skeletal frame to the works and customizing it with that Cameron flair. It's beautiful world building and special effects, it's action for the most part is delivered, and the storytelling is not bad given how difficult it is to cram a series into two hours.

Overall, "Alita: Battle Angel" is big and fun entertainment. It might appeal not for everyone taste, but this movie was done so well that it left wanting more. A very pleasant surprise.

Still no indication this is going to be released on regular Blu ray 3D/2D combo via amazon uk (or any other regions). Or an addition run of the 4K 3D combo.

Ok, so maybe the 4K combo with 3D preorders were just taken down not sold out, is that the general consensus? The reported release date is still june/july so maybe we'll know more next month.

This line intentionally left blank.

I read several explanations for this but cannot find the links anymore. Take them with a grain-of-salt. One was that due to poor initial-domestic movie sales, the studio was holding back on disc release details until the last minute, which is not unprecedented. The other was that there was licensing issues with products containing the name "Battle Angel".

Edit: Found a link from Wikipedia. Though no mention of how the lawsuit impacts disc sales.
