Check out a sneak peek of the upcoming Ghost in the Shell trailer

11.07.2016

Ghost in the Shell

Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, GHOST IN THE SHELL follows the Major (Scarlett Johansson), a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid who leads the elite task force. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, the Major is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out advancements in cyber technology. Check out a sneak peek of the upcoming trailer below!

Judging from the clip above, I'd say we can expect the new trailer to hit online on the 13th, if not sooner. Still, for someone not familiar with the source material, this has me interested. I'm sure fans will still find something to complain about, but ScarJo looks pretty badass here, so I need to see a little more before I lean one way or the other. Perhaps we'll have some definitive proof come next week!

GHOST IN THE SHELL opens in theaters on March 31, 2017.

Can't say I care for the look of her cyborg body - looks too much like a rubber suit, but the clip just before she comes out of her optical camoflage looks great - just like the animé - once you see SJ, not so much.
I'm not bothered about the idea of "whitewashing" the character - it's a cyborg body - but I'm not convinced she's the right actress for the role. The balance between adding star power and it just being another Scarlett Johansson movie is a pretty delicate one - Ghost In The Shell

The balance between adding star power and it just being another Scarlett Johansson movie is a pretty delicate one - Ghost In The Shell could probably have done well enough without such a high profile actress. Still, maybe she'll be good in the role.

Nope

Don't try to make her look asian, just get an asian.. Probably someone who actually knows the source material, and didn't have to get told what a big deal this film actually is. Everyone complaining that she's not asian, and wrong for the roll.. I hope everyone takes note of this that a white person is being nit picked for not being type casted properly. All fans want their characters to be represented accurately, never has anything to do with race.
- She's wrong for the part, even if

So far I only see white people complaining. The Japanese like the casting a lot, so put this to rest, man. Go worry about more important issues.

I'm not complaining, but you can see everyone's race that's commenting? Amazing.

Human-cyborg hybrid, Sean? A cyborg is already a human enhanced by mechanical elements built into the body.

If Johansson came make something crazy like 'Lucy' work and successful as well, then I'm sure she'll do a good job with this too; despite the whitewashing (hey it could be worse....they could have switched the gender and the race and cast Michael b Jordan).

Did you skip dr strange for making the ancient one a white woman?
Or for making baron mordo black?
Or did you skip out on lord of the rings for not using little people for hobbits?

It looks awful. A mix between Ultraviolet & Aeon Flux. Maybe it'll finally be a good movie but everything I saw for now is terrible. Why did they have to do a live action flick out of GITS?

ok

Looks cool.
Ok GITS is my fave anime film period. I love part 2 also, and i have seen all of stand alone complex and i own every other anime/movie etc. i havent actually watched it all yet, i was stockpiling.
anyway, this whole asian thing - her entire body is a shell - and i dont recall someone saying her shell looks like a japanese female - i could be wrong of course as i havent seen every tv series yet - BUT if its just a body then there is no better body a female should choose than

Looks cool to me, but...

I'm not very familiar with the anime/source material and I'm not a fan of Rupert Sanders. I think it looks like an interesting SciFi flick, So here's hoping it actually is.

It'd be nice if it was actually really really good.

And like it has really fair representations of Asians in the film, except the obvious, and a whole bunch of people have to eat crow.
But probably not. Rupert Sanders is kind of a hack.

"Rupert Sanders is kind of a hack".

Why would you say that when he's directed only one movie?

Yea. Fans are gonna complain since shes not Asian like the source material. Love Scarlett but I agree. After all the characters name is Motoko Kusanagi.
