Ghosts in the Shell 2.0 (15) (Japan 2008 Dir. Mamoru Oshii 85 min)

Barbican Film presents a special preview of the 1995 classic Ghost in the Shell in its newly remastered form, with remixed orchestration and the latest CGI technology, introduced by Helen McCarthy. The stunning visuals and soundtrack of the original movie gave a new dimension to Shirow Masamune's complex cyberpunk comic. Set in a re-imagined Hong Kong at a time when cyberspace is expanding into human reality, the story follows top cyberwarrior Major Motoko Kusanagi as she hovers on the border of total immersion in the digital world. The film has now been completely remastered, with all the original CGI shots completely re-digitised to enhance their quality. There's a new 6.1 surround soundtrack, with a new voice actor for the Puppet Master as Yoshiko Sakakibara replaces Iemasa Kayumi, and a remix of Kenji Kawai's disturbing and evocative score from Oscar-winning sound mixer/editor Randy Thom at Skywalker Sound.
