Blu-ray™ Combo Packs

Ghost in the Shell arrives on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack , Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on July 25, 2017 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. The future comes early on Digital HD July 7.

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 artifical 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.

A “visually stunning” (Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly) “classic in the making” (Dan Casey, Nerdist), Ghost in the Shell also stars Takeshi Kitano, Michael Carmen Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Chin Han, and Juliette Binoche.

I watched Ghost in the Shell with Chris and my 19 year old son. My husband had problems following it because there were some subtitles (not many – and only for one character) and some back and forth action that didn’t make sense to him, so he actually went to bed after about half an hour. Chris generally doesn’t like anything within in the sci-fi genre, so I wasn’t at all surprised by his reaction.

Taylor and I really enjoyed the film though, and had no problems following the action or the story line. I found the film to be fast paced enough that I didn’t get bored, and interesting/suspenseful enough that it kept my attention for the entire film. Scarlett Johansson did a good job of making me believe her character, and sympathize with her character as well. Over all, I very much enjoyed Ghost in the Shell and it is a movie I will be able to watch again.

The Ghost in the Shell 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray Combo Packs are loaded with over 50 minutes of fascinating special features. Scarlett Johansson, director Rupert Sanders and other cast and crew 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* remixed specifically for the home theater environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead.
