Masamune Shirow’s Ghost In The Shell enjoyed previous international acclaim as a Japanese manga which first surfaced in 1989 before receiving its first animated film adaptation under the same name in 1995, followed by a sequel in 2004. Over a decade later, Director Rupert Sanders brings the animations to life for the first time in an all new adaptation.
