I Am Major and I Give My Consent! The Ghost in the Shell Live Action Movie Whispers to You on DVD and BD!

Genre: Sci-Fi, Action | Release Date: July, 26th

Ghost in the Shell should ring a bell to any anime fan who experienced the 90s. After Akira, it was the second most important anime movie that defined the genre in the west. And whilst it wasn’t particularly popular on release, over time it hacked itself into the consciousness of anyone remotely interested in cyberpunk or anime.
For this live-action adaptation, director Rupert Sanders adapted a lot of the visuals and designs from Mamoru Oshii’s masterpiece and turned them into a stunning futuristic world. From the spiderlike robot Geishas to the digitally futurised skyline of Hong Kong, this is a gorgeous looking cyberpunk city that subtly hints at its roots in the likes of Blade Runner and Neuromancer. Just do your eyes a treat and visit graphic designer Ash Thorp’s website for a peek at what labor of love went into the visuals!

The movie also follows a lot of the ideas and story elements of the GitS canon. But it tones down the existentialist and dystopian themes from the series to make space for a faster paced, self-contained story. This might not be in the same vein as Oshii’s movie but more in tone with Masamune Shirow’s original manga. Whichever of those two you prefer, seeing “Beat” Takeshi Kitano as Chief Aramaki is just a joy!
The film comes in a variety of editions, most notably amongst them the 4K UHD 
steelbook, regular BD and 3D versions. And of course we still have the classic animes plus the newest incarnation in form of the Arise episodes plus film. This series has been around for a long time and you can check out the impressive back catalog here!
