Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence Returns to American Theatres in 4K

Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence is celebrating its 20th anniversary by returning to cinemas on June 23-34 and 26 in a new 4K restoration, courtesy of GKIDS. A sequel to the 1995 Ghost in the Shell adaptation, the movie originally premiered in 2004. Unlike its predecessor, it follows Batou (Akio Otsuka) as he faces a new mystery:

In the year 2032, the line between humans and machines has been blurred almost beyond distinction. A string of murders perpetrated by a prototype android model has drawn the attention of Public Security Section 9, a unit specializing in counter cyber-terrorism. With none of the victims’ families pressing charges, suspicions arise regarding the nature of the androids and their production company. In the course of the investigation, the almost entirely cyber-bodied agent Batou, and his still human partner Togusa embark on a journey through a technological dystopia, taking on ferocious Yakuza thugs, devious hackers, government bureaucrats, and corporate criminals to uncover the shocking truth behind the crime.

Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence was animated by Production I.G and directed by Mamoru Oshii. Kenji Kawai composed the music.

Ghost in the Shell is based on a manga by Shirow Masamune. It was originally serialized in Kodansha’s seinen manga magazine. Young Magazine Kaizokuban from 1989 to 1991. Ghost in the Shell 2: Man-Machine Interface sequel was serialized from 1997 to 2001. The manga spawned multiple movies and TV anime adaptations, including Netflix’s recent Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045. A new TV anime project by Science SARU is also in the works.
