5 Intriguing Teasers for Scarlett Johansson's Live-Action GHOST IN THE SHELL Movie
Paramount Pictures has released five very brief teasers for Scarlett Johansson's live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell. They offer us the first intriguing footage from the film, and I like what I see so far. The footage definitely got me excited about seeing more! I assume this means that a full trailer will be coming soon.
Ghost in the Shell follows the Major, 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.
The film is being directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman), and it's based on the classic manga series that was written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow. The movie also stars Beat Takeshi Kitano as Daisuke Aramaki, Juliette Binoche as Dr. Ouelet, Michael Pitt as Kuze, Pilou Asbæk as Batou, and Kaori Momoi. The members of Section 9 are played by Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara, and Tuwanda Manyimo.
Ghost in the Shell is set to be released in theaters on March 31st, 2017.
