FUNimation Unloads GHOST IN THE SHELL: THE NEW MOVIE Trailer, Release Date

FUNimation Entertainment announced today the theatrical release date for the Anime film Ghost In The Shell: The New Movie, alongside the unveiling of its international trailer.

The cyberpunk anime franchise’s first feature film in more than a decade, The New Movie continues the reimagining of Masamune Shirow’s classic manga begun in Ghost in the Shell: Arise.

11Set in a futuristic Japan after the end of a brutal world war, science has advanced by leaps and bounds giving humanity the choice to prolong life and reduce suffering with the use of sophisticated cybernetics. With all of humanity linked into one system of minds and personalities known as ghosts, the biggest threat to civilization are the cyber terrorists capable of hijacking people’s bodies and memories.

When a ghost-infecting virus known as Fire-Starter begins spreading through the system resulting in the assassination of the Japanese Prime Minister, Major Motoko Kusanagi and her elite team of special operatives are called in to track down its source. As they delve deeper and deeper into their investigation, they uncover traces of government corruption and a shadowy broker that bears an all-too-familiar face.

Ghost In The Shell: The New Movie will be screened in select US theaters on November 10, 11, and 16. Check the full trailer above.
