A special preview of this remasterd classic on the big screen with remixed orchestration and the latest CGI technology.

Introduced by anime expert Helen McCarthy.

Ghosts in the Shell 2.0 (15)

The sensation caused by the Western release of Oshii’s 1995 movie Ghost In The Shell almost equalled that of Akira four years earlier.

The stunning visuals and soundtrack gave a new dimension to Shirow Masamune’s complex cyberpunk comic.

Set in a re-imagined Hong Kong at a time when cyberspace is expanding into human reality, the story follows top cyberwarrior Major Motoko Kusanagi as she hovers on the border of total immersion in the digital world.

The film has now been completely remastered, with all the original CGI shots completely re-digitised to enhance their quality.

There’s a new 6.1 surround soundtrack, with a new voice actor for the Puppet Master as Yoshiko Sakakibara replaces Iemasa Kayumi, and a remix of Kenji Kawai’s disturbing and evocative score from Oscar-winning sound mixer/editor Randy Thom at Skywalker Sound.

The film opens in five cities across Japan just nine days earlier, on 12 July, making this among the first chances to see the new version on a cinema screen.

Japan 2008 Dir. Mamoru Oshii 85 min.
