It’s been a few months since the highly anticipated sci-fi cyberpunk manga adaptation Alita: Battle Angel flew into theaters, and we now have a definitive release date for the home video release in July! Being one of my favorite blockbusters of 2019, I am beyond excited to rewatch it and peruse through the hours and hours of special features included. Alita will be hitting everything from digital, to DVD, Blu-Ray, 3D Blu-Ray, and even 4K Ultra HD this Summer. Considering how stunning the movie looked in Imax, if you have 4K, definitely try and go for 4K.
