Fox pushes back Alita and The Predator, dates Branagh’s Death on the Nile
20th Century Fox has set new dates for four of its upcoming films, includingÂ Alita andÂ The Predator.Â The Robert Rodriguez-directedÂ Alita: Battle Angel was going to be released on July 20, 2018 but has now been pushed back to December 21, 2018. The film will have some big competition on that date, withÂ Aquaman,Â Bumblebee, andÂ Holmes & WatsonÂ scheduled to hit theaters that same day.
Visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) create a groundbreaking new heroine inÂ Alita: Battle Angel, an action-packed story of hope, love and empowerment. 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. When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships. It is then that Alita discovers she has extraordinary fighting abilities that could be used to save the friends and family she’s grown to love. Determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, Alita sets out on a journey that will lead her to take on the injustices of this dark, corrupt world, and discover that one young woman can change the world in which she lives.
The Shane Black-directedÂ The Predator is moving from August 3, 2018 to September 14, 2018. The other films scheduled for that date areÂ Alpha, Fox’s ownÂ The Darkest Minds, andÂ Fighting With My Family.Â The Predator cast includesÂ Boyd HolbrookÂ (Narcos,Â Logan),Â Olivia MunnÂ (X-Men: Apocalypse),Â Trevante RhodesÂ (Moonlight), Keegan-Michael Key (Keanu,Â Key & Peele), Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Jacob Tremblay (Room), Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Sterling K. Brown (The People vs. O.J. Simpson,Â This is Us) andÂ Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica,Â Blade Runner).
After the success ofÂ Murder on the Orient Express, Kenneth Branagh will return asÂ Agatha Christie’s detectiveÂ Hercule Poirot inÂ Death on the Nile, which 20th Century Fox has set for a November 8, 2019 release.Â James Bond 25 andÂ Noelle are also scheduled for that date. That will be almost exactly two years after the release ofÂ Orient Express.Â Death on the Nile was published in 1937. In the story, Poirot was on vacation in Egypt and ends up investigating a murder that resulted from a love triangle.
And lastly, 20th Century Fox has also set a March 5, 2021 release date for Blue Sky Studios’ animated film,Â Foster. Not much is known about that title yet.
