Here’s Your First ‘Ghost in The Shell’ Footage

The Ghost in The Shell movie is inching closer, and now we have a teaser of the trailer (yeah, a little silly) that shows off Scarlett Johansson in the title role.

This has a Matrix vibe to it for sure, and as the teaser of the trailer promises, we’ll get a full version on the 13th. Or, I guess, Tokyo gets it first, so if you’re there be ready:

Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, “GHOST IN THE SHELL” follows the Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.


Not a lot to go with there, but I am sure it’s plenty for Ghost in The Shell fans to either salivate over or scrutinize and point out flaws.¬†Much has been made of the Johansson casting for the Major role, as it should be. But in the end, I suppose these movies are more about U.S. dollars than human decency.

Along with Johansson, Ghost in The Shell also stars Michael Pitt, Michael Wincott, Juliette Binoche, Rila Fukushima, and is directed by Rupert Sanders of Snow White and The Huntsman fame. So, there’s that.

It opens March 31.
