Although there is no American release date for the Ghost in the Shell prequel series yet, fans of the influential sci-fi anime film are eager to lay their eyes on Ghost in the Shell: Arise. The anime that was a big influence on the Wachowskis’ Matrix trilogy hasn’t gotten its due in the U.S., but in Japan, it’s one of the country’s biggest sci-fi properties. The trailer above features the film’s thrilling action, and a young Motoko Kusanagi kicking ass with the Section 9 assault team.
Ghost in the Shell: Arise will open theaters in Japan this June, but sadly the trailer above isn’t dubbed or subtitled into English. Just sit back and enjoy the action! A few months ago, I.G. Productions released an earlier version of the trailer, and even the entire opening title sequence. In true Japanese anime fashion, there’s plenty of fan service to enjoy!
