Paramount’s “Ghost in the Shell” adaptation will arrive on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on July 25, 2017. The physical editions are already available to pre-order (starting at $19 at Amazon) and the Digital HD edition released back on July 7, 2017.
Set in a world where people are enhanced with technology, “Ghost in the Shell” follows Major (Scarlett Johansson), who believes she was rescued from near death. The first of her kind, Major is a human mind inside an artificial body designed to fight the war against cyber-crime. While investigating a dangerous criminal, Major makes a shocking discovery – the corporation that created her lied about her past life in order to control her. Unsure what to believe, Major will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery of her true identity and exact revenge against the corporation she was built to serve.
Fans that pick-up “Ghost in the Shell” on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray Combo Packs will get over 50 minutes of special features. Scarlett Johansson, director Rupert Sanders and other cast and crew will take you behind-the-scenes to talk stunts, special effects and intricate fight sequences. Plus, take an in-depth look at the real-life science behind robotics; discover how cyber-enhancements give each character specialized super–soldier abilities; and learn about the original anime as well as the inspirations behind the visually stunning view of the future. The film also boasts a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
The film debuted at number-three on the domestic box-office charts back in March of this year. The sci-fi thriller opened against the animated-comedy “Boss Baby,” and Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” was only in its third-week in theaters. Despite its slow start, “Ghost in the Shell” made over $40M domestically, and grossed over $169M worldwide. Scarlett Johansson fans will see the actor reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff (a.k.a. Black Widow) when Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” hits theaters in 2018.
