    Here's the full press release for the 4k release.

    One of Anime’s Most Beloved Films Is Reborn on 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack and Digital 4K Ultra HD September 8th from Lionsgate®

    4K Ultra HD to Include Dolby Vision® and Dolby Atmos®

    SANTA MONICA, CA (July 29, 2020) – Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of one of the most critically acclaimed anime films of all time when Ghost in the Shell arrives on 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray™ and Digital 4K Ultra HD) and Digital 4K Ultra HD on September 8th from Lionsgate. Based on the beloved manga from Japanese writer and illustrator Shirow Masamune, the film’s voice cast includes Atsuko Tanaka (Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, TV’s “Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex”, “Ghost in the Shell 2.0”), Akio Ôtsuka (Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, Paprika, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots), and Kôichi Yamadera (Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, Ninja Scroll). Remastered in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, and featuring fan-favorite commemorative artwork from pop illustrator Martin Ansin – along with brand new bonus material – this will be the most definitive Ghost in the Shell package to date.

    2029: A female cybernetic government agent, Major Motoko Kusanagi, and the Internal Bureau of Investigations are hot on the trail of “The Puppet Master,” a mysterious and threatening computer virus capable of infiltrating human hosts. Together with her fellow agents from Section 9, Kusanagi embarks on a high-tech race against time to capture the omnipresent entity. Director Mamoru Oshii’s award-winning cyber-tech thriller, based on the comic book by Shirow Masamune, is lauded as one of the leading Japanese animation films of all time.

    The Ghost in the Shell special features include an audio commentary as well as two brand new bonus featurettes: “Accessing Section 9: 25 Years into the Future” and “Landscapes & Dreamscapes – The Art and Architecture of Ghost in the Shell.” Experience four times the resolution of full HD with the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, which includes Dolby Vision, bringing entertainment to life through ultra-vivid picture quality. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver spectacular colors never before seen on a screen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. Additionally, the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack features Dolby Atmos, which will transport viewers from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with moving audio that flows all around them. Fans will feel like they’re inside the action as the sounds of people, places, things, and music come alive with breathtaking realism and move throughout the space.

    The Ghost in the Shell 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack will be available for the suggested retail price of $22.99.

    If the trailer is anything to go by, this is the same DNR'd to hell transfer used for the Japanese 4K release. Not sure what the point of a 4K release is supposed to be if you destroy the look of a classic.

    I'm not a steelbook guy, but the Best Buy steel is a thing of beauty.

    GiTS is the only film I've watched twice in one year in long time. Really loving re-discovering this film. The Arrow Book was an amazing supplement to pair with watching the film again this week. Some great insights and answered some questions I always had about the film.

    I'm so surprised that I don't hate the remake. It's kinda unnecessary but its just different enough that I find it worth watching. I do wonder if I would have enjoyed the film more if the lead had been Asian.

    I wish I could get my hands on that fan restoration.

    From what I've understood, Lionsgate screwed up the Japanese audio tracks, which all contain the closing music from the ENG dub track rather than the original Japanese music.
