First Look: ‘The Art of Ghost in The Shell’

This spring, Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures present Ghost in the Shell, the highly-anticipated live-action film based on the Japanese manga classic, starring Scarlett Johansson.

Insight Editions is pleased to announce the publication of The Art of Ghost in the Shell (March 2017), a deluxe book chronicling the epic journey behind the creation of the film.

Based on the internationally-acclaimed Anime property, Ghost in the Shell follows Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9 devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists. Directed by Rupert Sanders, the film stars Johansson, “Beat” Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, and Kaori Momoi.

To bring Ghost in the Shell to life, the film required the creation of a unique, futuristic world in which the majority of the population augments their bodies with cybernetic enhancements. Working with the award-winning Weta Workshop, director Rupert Sanders and his team designed every aspect of this new world, from cityscapes filled with skyscraper-sized holograms to robotic geishas and futuristic weaponry. Through The Art of Ghost in the Shell, fans can delve deeper into the inner-mechanisms of this astonishing sci-fi world, and discover the making of this incredible film.

Created under license from Paramount Licensing, this immersive book reveals the meticulous and innovative artistry behind Ghost in the Shell through interviews with the cast and crew and a wealth of extraordinary never-before-seen art that showcases the amazing vision at the heart of the film.

The Art of Ghost in the Shell is available March 14, 2017.
