The First Ghost in the Shell Trailer Brings the Popular Manga to Life

By Germain Lussier on at

After months of controversy surrounding the live-action Ghost in the Shell, we finally have something more fun to talk about. At a live event in Tokyo, the first trailer was unveiled to the world, and it’s pretty fantastic.

Fans of the manga turned anime will notice plenty of throwbacks to those works, with lots of new stuff blended in. Plus star Scarlett Johansson really seems to nail the human on the inside, cyborg on the outside of her character, Major. Check it out.

We’ll have much, much more on the trailer and Ghost in the Shell later this week.

The film, which stars Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, and Michael Pitt, opens March 31st, 2017.[YouTube]
