Ghost In The Shell 2.0 – A ‘touching up’ of the 1995 original

leave a comment »

Boasting a new 6.1 DD sound mix, a soundtrack that comprises Kenji Kawaii’s original mix as well as newer material mastered at Skywalker Sound and also a smattering of new CG for a variety of scenes *pant*, Ghost In The Shell 2.0 marks a crucial re-release of the now thirteen year old anime opus.

Directed by Mamoru Oshii in 1995, Ghost In The Shell was the original anime cyberpunk thriller that combined a high concept near future with brutal action, striking visuals and a haunting musical score to create a production that like Akira before it, would succeed in challenging western ideals that animation is just for kids.

The new Ghost In The Shell film will debut in Japanese cinemas on July 12, with no date for a western release. While a western theatrical run seems unlikely, a DVD release will no doubt be in the offing soon enough.
