The entertainment information site IGN.com is streaming a new trailer for the English version of the computer-animated Appleseed: Ex Machina film.

Director Shinji Aramaki (co-creator of Genesis Climber Mospeada, Megazone 23) based both the original 2004 Appleseed movie and this new sequel on the critically acclaimed paramilitary action manga series by Masamune Shirow (Ghost in the Shell, Ghost Hound). The new film features famed Hong Kong director John Woo (A Better Tomorrow, Hard Boiled) in a producer role and the Italian fashion designs of Miuccia Prada.
