Ghost in the Shell

When it comes to Hollywood remakes of well known Japanese properties, the end results can be a little mixed; for every THE RING, there's a GODZILLA (1998) waiting in the wings. It remains to be seen which side the upcoming adaptation of Masamune Shirow's "Ghost in the Shell" will fall on, but I've been pleasantly surprised, at least in the visual sense, of what we've seen from the film so far. Directed by Rupert Sanders, GHOST IN THE SHELL stars Scarlett Johansson as the Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9 which is devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists.

A new featurette for GHOST IN THE SHELL has been released which explores the world of Section 9, with particular focus on Chief Daisuke Aramaki (Takeshi Kitano) and Batou (Pilou Asbæk).

There's just over two weeks to go until the release of GHOST IN THE SHELL, but if you'd care for a little more of the Major (Scarlett Johansson) and Section 9, make sure to read our own JimmyO's recent review of the 12-minute IMAX preview of GHOST IN THE SHELL.

The official synopsis for GHOST IN THE SHELL:

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.

GHOST IN THE SHELL is set for a March 31st release.

I wished that they cast a more suitable looking actor for Togusa and add in the tachikoma robots (haven't seen them in the trailers, I hope they're in it somewhere), but I'll likely watch this movie out of curiosity alone.

it would be great to see those in there! and Togusa is just wicked! i hope he is cool in the movie.

I own EVERY single GITS bluray/dvd - but i have only seen the 2 movies and stand alone complex (season 1).
this movie seems like they are saying that the major was forced into section 9 or something and that they stole her life etc -is that the case?

that was never really hinted at in the stuff i saw - maybe its from Arise perhaps? do you know?
because i dont want her turning on section 9

honestly, I hope this movie gets a fair shot. It looks good but its hampered down by the SJW saying its white washed when in fact in the anime movie and show, the major is an Asian character in a Caucasian shell and who went through various other shells/looks etc. So the major looking Caucasian in GITS is in line with the anime.

She is just terrible... i do not see what everyone else sees in her.. i was hoping that this film would do well, so more Japanese animated series/films can get hollywood backing, but i dont think this will do well at all.
