GO FISH'S "GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: INNOCENCE" PASSES $1 MILLION AT THE DOMESTIC BOX OFFICE

Mamoru Oshii's "Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence," has been building box office success since opening in limited release on September 17, 2004. Carried by critical acclaim and strong word of mouth, the anime film has grossed an estimated $1,011,000 to date, making it the top-grossing anime movie ever in limited release of less than 100 screens, and the number seven anime film in history. The latter statistic is especially impressive, given that the PG-13-rated "Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence" is not based on a successful children's series, like "Pokemon" and its sequels.

The long-awaited sequel to Mamoru Oshii's anime cult hit, "Ghost in the Shell," "Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence" was the first anime film-and only the sixth animated film-ever to compete for the Cannes International Film Festival's coveted Palme d'Or.

"Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence" was written and directed by Mamoru Oshii based on an original story by Shirow Masamune. Mitsuhisa Ishikawa and Toshio Suzuki produced the film under the Production I.G. banner.

Set in 2032, when the line between humans and machines has been blurred almost beyond distinction, "Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence" is the story of a solitary cyborg who desperately wants to hold on to what's left of his humanity in a world where the worth of the human soul is fading almost into obscurity.

Go Fish Pictures is the specialty film division of DreamWorks SKG, which was formed in October, 1994, by its three principal partners-Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen-to produce and distribute live-action motion pictures; animated feature films; network and cable television programming; home video entertainment; records; books; toys; and consumer products.
