Ghost in the Shell Scarlett Johansson

The anime adaptation GHOST IN THE SHELL has had an avalanche of material drop this weekend, including its first official trailer, but we're already getting a deeper look into the film, which was directed by Rupert Sanders. A clip has dropped, detailing the opening sequence of the film, an homage to the original anime. Featuring a bombastic score by Kenji Kawai, it's a quietly stunning piece that doesn't give any story away, but still manages to set up the tone and look of the flick. Check it out below!

Scarlett Johansson plays 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.

Jonathan Herman and Jamie Moss handled the screenplay adaptation. Johansson's co-stars include Rila Fukushima, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Michael Wincott, Juliette Binoche, Beat Takeshi, Kaori Momoi, Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara, and Tuwanda Manyimo.
