Thanks to cool a$$ distributors Well Go USA we all get to oggle the girls and giant worms of Mamoru Osshii's (Ghost in the Shell) Assualt Girls in 1080 HD! The film is seeing release on Western shores October 18.

Synopsis:
In the aftermath of global thermonuclear war, three battle tested women: Gray (Meisa Kuroki), Lucifer (Rinko Kikuchi), and Colonel (Hinako Saeki), distinctly armed with Assault Rifles and electrifying magic, are transported to the virtual world of Avalon F. It's here these beautiful women known as Assault Girls must test their fighting skills in an epic virtual battle against sand-dwelling monsters known as Sand Whales. As the virtual game begins to unfold, the sparkle of "muzzle flash" begins to fade and assault ships gather overhead. The end is near when suddenly a gigantic super mutation called "Madara Sunakujira" attacks and the battle for survival begins.


There's even an all new website just for English speakers!

Thanks to 24fps for the heads up.

Watch the trailer.

Gruesome trailer and boring. Crappy CG and actors who do not deserve the name. Plus the trailer promises plot-free entertainment. Is this a no-budged production?

Lunovis, do you really think Mamoru cannot get a budget for anything he envisions...
Did it ever occured to you he wanted to make it like that, look again, and you'll see why.

Then look at Avalon, and then again at this trailer.

Awesome.

This is not Avalon. It could have been really awesome though. I can see what he was doing but I wish he made it epic with more story exposition and nothing to do with a virtual world. The ladies and costumes look fantastic though! I loved it when Lucifer entered the show!
worth it for collectors.

You are right, it is Avalon(f).
And you are right that virtua worlds just like are real one is becoming more shallow by every nano second, which is the whole point of the movie and snail.
