Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence Gets 4K Rerelease This SummerGhost in the Shell 2: Innocence, Mamoru Oshii’s 2004 follow-up to Ghost in the Shell, is hitting North American theaters this summer in 4K.

The rerelease is courtesy Gkids. The 4K version will debut at Chicago Critic’s Film Festival in May before it heads out for wide release.

Here’s how Gkids describes the film:

In the year 2032, the line between humans and machines has been blurred almost beyond distinction. A string of murders perpetrated by a prototype android model has drawn the attention of Public Security Section 9, a unit specializing in counter cyber-terrorism. With none of the victims’ families pressing charges, suspicions arise regarding the nature of the androids and their production company. In the course of the investigation, the almost entirely cyber-bodied agent Batou, and his still human partner Togusa embark on a journey through a technological dystopia, taking on ferocious Yakuza thugs, devious hackers, government bureaucrats, and corporate criminals to uncover the shocking truth behind the crime.
