On other news: Isao Takahata’s Pom Poko will be out on Blu-ray Disc in Japan on November 6th. Bummer, I was expecting a more high-calible title like Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke.

Ghost in the Shell Arise: Ghost Pain Trailer

Synopsis:

The story is set in 2027, one year after the end of the fourth non-nuclear war. New Port City is still reeling from the war’s aftermath when it suffers a bombing caused by a self-propelled mine. Then, a military member implicated in arms-dealing bribes is gunned down.
During the investigation, Public Security Section’s Daisuke Aramaki encounters Motoko Kusanagi, the cyborg, wizard-level hacker assigned to the military’s 501st Secret Unit. Batou, a man with the “eye that does not sleep,” suspects that Kusanagi is the one behind the bombing. The Niihama Prefectural Police detective Togusa is pursuing his own dual cases of the shooting death and a prostitute’s murder. Motoko herself is being watched by the 501st Secret Unit’s head Kurutsu and cyborg agents.

First Teaser Footage for Bong Joon-Ho’s Snowpiercer

Naja, eigentlich eher ein Promovideo in dem sich Regisseur Bong Joon-ho zu seiner Verfilmung von Jacques Lob und Jean-Marc Rochettes Comic Snowpiercer (Le Transperceneige) äußert. Da der Großteil von uns aber kein koreanisch verstehen dürfte und einige dramatisch geschnittene Szenen aus dem Film präsentiert werden, verpasste ich das ganze aber mal den Stempel “Teaser”.

Synopsis:

The film is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.
