Paramount has released a 360 degree Ghost in the Shell experience to accompany the film. The video can be viewed on the Ghost in the Shell Facebook page, or on the Oculus Rift and Gear VR platforms.
The VR experience was developed by the VR studio’s Here be Dragons and Rewind. This is the same creative team behind the Mr Robot virtual reality experience.
Ghost in the Shell depicts a dystopian future where most humans are augmented with cybernetics. The story focuses cyborg policewoman named Major who is hunting a hacker known as the “Puppet Master”.
The VR experience features one of the most iconic scenes from Ghost in the Shell, where Major dives off the a skyscraper in a tight thermoptic vambagule suit. Major (played by Scarlett Johnson) fights her way through androids and other assorted villains.
While the film has enjoyed mixed success at the box office, this shouldn’t detract you from trying out this visually stunning virtual experience,
