Ghost in the Shell is back

21 years since Ghost In The Shell broke out of Japan and hit the silver screen in the UK, the film is back. This time for only one day at a select list of cinemas ( the list you can find below as well as where to get tickets ).

This film, and Akira, defined what manga was for years. It is still thought as one of the greatest films of it’s genre. An idea that is becoming closer to reality every day. That and the release of the live action version that hits in March of that year.

It’s the only time you can see this classic at the cinemas. It’s the time to see it in a new digitally remastered version.

The year is 2029, the world is made borderless by the net; augmented humans who live in virtual environments. Watched over by law enforcement agents that are able to download themselves into super-powered, crime busting mecha. The ultimate secret agent of the future is not human, has no physical body and can travel freely through the information highways of the world. Hacking and manipulating whatever, whomever and whenever required…

Ghost in the Shell returns to the cinema 21 years after its initial UK release for one night only on January 25, 2017
