Feature: An Adult’s Guide to Animation

To help promote the upcoming movie Soeul Station, which is an animated prequel film to the live-action Train to Busan movie, we’ve teamed up with STUDIOCANAL (and PR firm Fetch Publicity) to publicise this feature they have produced listing a variety of ‘adult themed’ animated movies; including the ever popular Ghost in the Shell movie which (coincidentially enough) is recieving a live-action later this month.
