A trailer for the live action Ghost In The Shell movie has surfaced on-line. The film, directed by Rupert Saunders (Snow White and The Hunstman) and starring Scarlett Johansson, has been followed by controversy since the beginning for accusations of Hollywood “white washing”. All that aside, watching this trailer, it’s hard to argue that it doesn’t at least look visually arresting and faithful to its source material.  You can watch the trailer below.


Ghost in the Shell  is a Japanese anime franchise originally published as a manga series written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow. The manga was first serialized in 1989 under the subtitle The Ghost in the Shell, and later published on its own in volumes. The property has been a massive hit worldwide. The series told the story of the fictional counter-cyberterrorist organization Public Security Section 9, led by protagonist Major Motoko Kusanagi, in the mid 21st century of Japan
