Your First Look At ‘Ghost In The Shell’ With 5 Teasers

Paramount Pictures released five teasers for the live-action version of ‘Ghost in the Shell’ during the season finale of ‘Mr. Robot.’ Since they are glitchy and look like the Dark Army, one could have thought they were part of ‘Mr. Robot’ until Scarlett Johansson shows up.

‘Ghost in the Shell’ is going to have an uphill climb to win over fans as the film has received heavy criticism because of casting and has become a symbol of Hollywood ‘whitewashing.’

The original manga from 1989 was written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow. It told the story of the counter-cyberterrorist organization Public Security Section 9, led by protagonist Major Motoko Kusanagi, in the mid 21st century of Japan. The first anime appeared in 1995.


The plot for the live-action film is vague; A cyborg policewoman attempts to bring down a nefarious computer hacker.

The film is directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) and stars Johansson, Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, and Michael Pitt. ‘Ghost in the Shell’ is set for release on March 31, 2017.
