The official PlayStation blog began streaming an exclusive nine-minute video of Paramount Picture live-action film on Wednesday.

That imagery has enraptured fans all over the world and it was the cornerstone for us as we developed the movie.” Sanders’ full statement is available on the PlayStation Blog.
The film held its world premiere in Tokyo on March 16, and it will open in Japan on April 7. The film’s Japanese dub will feature Atsuko Tanaka, Akio Ohtsuka, and Kouichi Yamadera reprising their roles as the Major, Batou, and Togusa, respectively.
