Last Friday, we showed you a behind-the-scenes featurette of the live action adaptation of the seminal Japanese anime Ghost in the Shell, directed by Rupert Sanders. While the glimpse it offered us of the film’s footage was awesome, it pales in comparison to the full trailer, which just dropped yesterday. I’m willing to go on record as saying this may just be the best trailer of 2016. Have a look below and tell me if you agree!
Starring Scarlett Johansson (a hire that drew some “whitecasting” criticism), Paramount’s Ghost in a Shell follows Johansson’s The Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid who leads the elite task force called 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 advancements in cyber technology.
Ghost in the Shell also features Rila Fukushima, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Juliette Binoche, Beat Takeshi, Kaori Momoi, Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara, and Tuwanda Manyimo. Look for it in US Theaters starting on March 31st.
