Anchor Bay Entertainment has just added a Blu-Ray Disc version of Ghost In The Shell 2.0 to their release line-up, bringing the anime film to a store near you in November.
The sci-fi anime classic spawned thousands of imitations but has never been bettered – Mamoru Oshii’s legendary anime film “Ghost In The Shell” returns in a stunning new edition, remastered by Oshii himself. For this definitive 2.0 version release, all the original animations are re-produced with the latest digital film and animation technologies, including 3D-CGI.
