UK Anime fans will be pleased to hear the news that Manga Entertainment UK have sent us. We've been told as it's the 25th anniversary since the original Masamune Shirow manga was released, the film will receive a limited theatrical run at select Picturehouse Cinemas from 27th September 2014. Following on from that on Monday 29th September the movie will get a HD Blu-ray release with a bonus 22-page booklet, in a limited edition steel book. Fans will note that this the first time the original movie has had a high-def release in the UK.
The limited edition Steelbook is available to pre-order now from the Amazon.co.uk now.
Manga Entertainment UK also teased us with a poster from San Diego Comic Con, which was causing a stir. It's the limited edition print of Kilian Eng's Ghost in the Shell poster which was sold on the Mondo booth.
