Ghost in the Shell team descend into the Inferno


The creative team that brought TV series Ghost in the Shell from manga to the big screen, now take on Dante’s Inferno. Being released next month on February 2, Dante’s Inferno goes from the well known, little-read, classic The Divine Comedy to the big screen in glorious animation.  

The classic, considered to be the centre of Italian literature, is an allegorical vision of the Catholic afterlife and follows Dante descent with Virgil into the underworld where they traverse the nine circles of hell: limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery. Dante’s journey is an attempt to save his love Beatrice from the clutches of Lucifer.  

The visually striking modern interpretation of the film sees Electronic Arts and Film Roman collaborate again after Dead Space: Downfall in 2008. The team of creatives have been involved in Ghost in the Shell, Hellboy Animated and Iron Man: Armored Adventures.  

The premier will take place in London, at the Apollo cinema in Piccadilly Circus and couples with the release of the XBox 360, PS3 and PSP versions of the game which will be available to demo. Dante’s Inferno games are currently available for pre-order on WantItAll.  

The film will be released on Blu-ray and DVD only 3 days after it premiers at the sci-fi cinema for all, including non-Londoners, to see. Pre-order Dante’s Inferno on Blu-ray from WantItAll.
