Lionsgate announces Ghost in the Shell on 4K
Easily one of the most popular anime properties is Ghost of the Shell. The property started out as a seinen manga in 1989 before being immortalized in the hit 1995 anime film of the same name. The film spawned both sequel films, animated series and a live action adaptaion. Now the iconic original film is getting a new release on 4K Ultra that is sure to take it to the next level.
In the film, a female cybernetic government agent, Major Motoko Kusanagi, and the Internal Bureau of Investigations are hot on the trail of “The Puppet Master,” a mysterious and threatening computer virus capable of infiltrating human hosts. Together, with her fellow agents from Section 9, they embark on a high-tech race against time to capture the omnipresent entity.
In addition to the groundbreaking anime film, this release includes audio commentary as well as two brand new bonus featurettes: “Accessing Section 9: 25 Years into the Future” and “Landscapes & Dreamscapes – The Art and Architecture of Ghost in the Shell.” Witness the film like never before when Ghost in the Shell hits 4K Ultra for the first time on September 8th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
