Paramount has revealed their official Super Bowl TV spot for Rupert Sanders' Ghost in the Shell movie, a few days ahead of its premiere on Sunday in the big game. Scarlett Johansson stars as "The Major", a "one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid" who leads an elite task force as part of Section 9. She goes on an epic search to find a hacker criminal who wants to destroy all the technology at Hanka Robotics. Also starring Michael Pitt, Juliette Binoche, Michael Wincott, Rila Fukushima, Chin Han, filmmaker Takeshi Kitano, Joseph Naufahu, with Pilou Asbæk as Batou. This TV spot features only a few new shots, the rest of it is footage we've seen from the first official trailer, but it still looks badass.

    This is going to be good, even though I would imagime a different actor than Johansson for the Major... But we shall see.
      I agree with both points. I thought Rinko Kikuchi from PACIFIC RIM proved herself capable. Oh well.
      • Bo
        Well, David, Rink Kikuchi has no where near the box office recognition that Johansson has, which I'm sure played a big part in the casting. You agree? Cheers.
        • DAVIDPD
          I would be inclined to agree. I know the factors that went into choosing Scarlet. But, no matter what "sense" that went into casting, I would have wanted a Japanese to have filled the role.
          • Bo
            Fair enough. Of course, it's not your money that went into the production of this movie so you have no vested interest in it making that money back and a lot more to boot. Thus, the casting of Scarlet...who will no doubt turn in a good performance as she usually does and the investors will be happy they cast her for her popularity around the world. It is show 'business' after all...and not a PC business. Righto Cheerio? All that still doesn't, and shouldn't, change your mind about your personal preference about who you would have preferred in the role. Maybe next time? Peace.

      I don't know...I think she might be good in it. You hear a lot about whitewashing but if you've seen the anime it's obvious her body is modeled after a caucasian.
    It'd be fun to have a fan trailer cut to "It's A Man's Man's Man's World".

    Super Bowl add??? Not sure about everyone else, but I'm seeing the original trailer posted here. The movie looks awesome though...can't wait. I doubt it will closely follow the original movie but some of the scenes look like they're cut straight from it.

      Click on the Youtube link just above the video. That leads to the actual Superbowl Ad.

    It will be never as good as original. But some nice shots of Johansson's body will do. I don't expect much more than that from this ...
  • I'm looking forward to this. Some of the colours are a bit jarring on all the cgi billboard stuff, I think in the animal that all blended together a bit better, but that's just a little thing really.
  • RAW_D
    Looks like the anime come to life. Will it hold the same substance?

    I hope they won't mess up with the original soundtrack, it should remain as it is: perfect
