Ghost in the Shell Trailer

"They created her, but they cannot control her." Paramount has just debuted the second official trailer for Rupert Sanders' live-action Ghost in the Shell movie, based on the original manga series. We've already seen one trailer and the Super Bowl spot, but this new one is even better. 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, plus filmmaker Takeshi Kitano, Joseph Naufahu, with Pilou Asbæk as Batou. It looks like they're polishing the VFX and it looks great so far. Plus it's awesome to see they're including the tank fight in this. Fire it up.

Here's the second official trailer for Rupert Sanders' Ghost in the Shell movie, direct from YouTube:

This looks even better than the first teasers. Sure, it differs from the GITS stories known so far (did not read mangas, but watched all movies/series), but why not?

Puritanism at its best. A naked woman without nakedness. But lethal, of course. Original was better in that sense, too. No matter how pumped this looks ...

What you mean original was better? The original is an anime and you haven't seen this version yet.

Sure, and I liked it when I saw it first time during 1990s. But I am disappointed how much this mostly looks like only an imitation of animated version. Although, if I remember right, the body of the main character looked more alive in anime than this. True, also, we haven't seen this but I have my doubts that this won't be much more but only attempt to satisfy the fan base of this story. Which is a pity ...

Agreed, this is what we all wanted...a direct live-action version of the anime film sooooo I'm not even sure how that complaint even makes sense. Plus ScarJo looks incredible lol this is gonna slay.

She looks good to me....

She looks like a doll, but one that is like a toy for five year old girl and with a killing instinct of an adult person. If I have to be blunt, then I will and say that such a body should have an sexual appeal and this one doesn't have any. However, although she may not be sexy but she can be definitely lethal.That's sick and deranged for me...

I'd bang her 🙂

TheOct8pus on Feb 13, 2017


And you would hit the plastic. Or something similar...

shiboleth on Feb 13, 2017


No....I don't think I could bang a doll or a robot....but Scar-Jo in a body suit - Sure. Nipples or no nipples

TheOct8pus on Feb 13, 2017


And that's why all that we are getting is a doll or a robot. Of course, you can always dream of a real woman, of any woman, really. Looks like it's free of charge. In the meantime, face the plastic ...

I'm digging this. I wonder if this will spawn sequels and spinoffs just like the original anime did....

TheOct8pus on Feb 13, 2017


Scarlet's haircut is straight outta the early 90s.

DAVIDPD on Feb 13, 2017


Visually...this looks amazing. Story's been so long I might give the original anime a watch just for comparison sake. It's been TOO long (1999 or 2000 since I've seen it last)...

RAW_D on Feb 13, 2017


The trailer doesn't sync with the '95 anime I remember. I really wish somebody else would have been cast besides Scarlett Johansson. I don't think she fits the role, not from the "whitewash" angle, but from the "she doesn't fit the role" angle, which is the most important angle to have. And if you can't realize that you're obtuse.

Something is missing, I love the anime, the series, and even the 2nd one, but there is something that is not here, the way you can feel the city, the landscapes, here is just action action, GIT was about something different and Scarlet is OK but not the Major

Estik Roa on Feb 13, 2017


This so-called "director" has no clue what the anime is all about. SAD!
