FUNimation Announces GHOST IN THE SHELL: NEW MOVIE For November U.S. Release

Director Nomura Kazuya's latest contribution, Ghost In The Shell: New Movie, is heading for a limited time to theaters in the U.S. thanks to FUNimation. On that note, the new trailer arrived this week to introduce the film following its theatrical run in Japan, following up on the ongoing 2013 serial run of the Arise series.

Set 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 is 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. 
When your target can be anywhere and look like anyone, the only choice you have is to trust your ghost, and hope you aren’t infected too.

Details remain low key on the fate that awaits the live-action film adapting Shirow Masumane's acclaimed work, but at least fans have the anime to gloss over. Mark your calendars for November 10, 11 and 16, and watch the trailer below!
