Psycho-Pass fans get excited. Psycho-Pass: The Movie English is coming to select theaters in March 15 and 16. IGN just released the trailer for the highly anticipated film today.

Check it out.


Psycho-Pass: The Movie is an anime science fiction crime film created by Japan-based Production I.G. Its plot involves terrorists’ arrival in Japan.

Psycho-Pass: The Movie Plot goes:

Four years (2116AD) after the death of Shogo Makishima and the disappearance of Shinya Kōgami, the Japanese government has begun to export the Sibyl System technology to other countries, with plans to ultimately spread it throughout the world.

A state in the midst of a civil war, SEAUn (the South East Asia Union), brings in the Sibyl System as an experiment, and the coastal town of Shambala Float achieves temporary peace and safety. But then terrorists from SEAUn appear in Japan, slipping through the Sibyl System and attacking from within, drawing Akane Tsunemori and her team to Shambala Float (based in what was once Cambodia) to investigate, drawn by evidence linking Kōgami with them.

Psycho-Pass: The Movie was released in over 100 theatres in Japan and premiered in January 9, 2015. It took a long time before they finished making this English dub version, but at least it’s here now. Fans won’t have to wait too long to see it.

According to Wikipedia, Psycho-Pass: The Movie has slight references to other anime sci-fi films like Ghost in the ShellInnocent VenusBlade Runner, and Apocalypse Now.

I haven’t seen either of the two seasons of the anime series yet, but looking at this new trailer, the story looks really cool. The animation itself also looks good AF. YouTube commenters are even clamoring for a third season. Now I really have to watch this.
