Full trailer for Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johansson is "online"

11.13.2016

The full trailer for director Rupert Sanders' (SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN) live-action adaptation of GHOST IN THE SHELL is now "online" and it looks...pretty impressive. While there's been some backlash against Scarlett Johansson being cast in the role of The Major, the film looks spot on in interpreting the original 1995 vision from director Mamoru Oshii (based on the Manga comic by Masamune Shirow). The costumes, design, and overall look seem to have captured the world of GHOST IN THE SHELL with style and integrity, but will that be enough? Check it out below and judge for yourself:

Here's the synopsis:

Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, “GHOST IN THE SHELL” follows 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.

There may be some holdouts for this one based on the casting controversy, but I think most movie fans will flock to it. It's been a hot minute since I've seen the original, but I loved it growing up and Johansson has emerged as a hell of a leading lady in the action genre, which is no small feat. She's at the top of her game and I think this is a smart franchise for her to invest in. I'm more nervous about Sanders, who did not impress me with SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN. He's got style, sure, but GHOST IN THE SHELL will need more than that to resonate with viewers. Still, based on the trailer, this one has me optimistic for a good sci-fi show.

GHOST IN THE SHELL hits theaters on March 31, 2017.

I'm very cautious but this does ease the pain a little.

I am a huge fan of the original series, having read the manga, seen all the anime movies and shows, this is my favorite series. While the trailer looks very stylized and that's what will bring people to the theater, I really hope we get a better story than just a whole Major origin story. The plot has to make sense and pull from the series. That is where 99% of these adaptions go wrong.

This looks like shit. And they even cast the worst actress to play a white girl doing an Asian character. Why not just make her a black Jew trump supporter

Why is "online" in inverted commas?

Shes just so boring

Why are all directors lining up to put her in as some sort of action star. Its just not believable and not because shes a woman, because shes just not impressive as an action star. Shes got to be the most over rated actor out there after Jennifer lawrence.

OH, MAN!!!

I am SO looking forward to this movie! And they did the opening scene from the animated film beat for beat perfect, along with the "Making of a Cyborg" song!

As a big fan of all ghost in the shell movies and tv shows I am excited.
Batou is my favorite character and he looks pretty cool.
It seems as if they are taking bits and pieces from different GITS sources so I am interested to see how it pans out.

I'm with Soloist on this one, I'm not sure its going to be completely faithful, but damn if it doesn't look like a highly stylized visual feast. I might be lynched for this, but the look feels like a 21st century blade runner to me. Everything from the city, the characters, the neon, like blade runner would have been with our modern effects. I'll be there day one, which i didn't expect upon hearing of this, and major kudos to the Depeche Mode as it fit perfectly.

I don't know how well this follows the source material, but it looks pure fun and entertaining; nice use of the Depeche Mode song as well.

But it's trailers and films like this with Johansson that make me question why Marvel hasn't given her her own solo Black Widow film yet.
