Ghost in the Shell – Official Trailer #1 (VIDEO)
The first official full length trailer for Ghost in the Shell has been released. The film will follow Scarlett Johansson as Major Motoko Kusanagi, an augmented cybernetic human who is the field commander for Public Safety Section 9, and her team as they fight against cyber criminal and a new enemy who is attempting to sabotage the A.I. technology from Hanka Precision Instruments.
The video starts off with Johansson introducing the trailer. After that, it is two minutes of trailer goodness. There’s video and audio. What’s not to love? Okay, kidding aside, the trailer looks really good. It is incredibly evident that they drew heavy inspiration from the manga and anime of the same name. They will need to pull out all of the stops in order to be a success. Not only is it already a tricky situation adapting a live action film from anime or manga, but also the controversy surrounding the project has not been doing them any favors. However, if there is one thing we can all try to agree on, it’s that the beautiful aesthetic we know and love from Ghost in the Shell is quite apparent in this trailer. Whether or not that will help the live action film prove to be successful remains to be seen, but here’s to hoping.
Ghost in the Shell is directed by Rupert Sanders and will be released March 31, 2017. It stars Scarlett Johansson(Major), Pilou Asbæk(Batou), Takeshi Kitano(Chief Daisuke Aramaki), Juliette Binoche(Dr. Ouelet), Michael Pitt(Kuze), and is being produced and distributed by DreamWorks and Paramount.
