One Final Trailer for 'Ghost in the Shell' Invites Us into Another World
"It won't stop until they control everyone." Opening in theaters everywhere worldwide this weekend is the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie, based on the popular manga/anime, starring Scarlett Johansson as the human-cyborg Major. To give the movie one final push, Paramount has released this final trailer, featuring tons of VFX-polished futuristic footage. The sci-fi action movie also stars Michael Pitt, Juliette Binoche, Michael Wincott, Rila Fukushima, Chin Han, plus Takeshi Kitano, Joseph Naufahu, with Pilou Asbæk as Batou. I'm glad to hear the original music in this trailer, and see new footage of her fighting the tank robot. I'm planning to watch this movie this week, still hopeful it's actually good after all.
Here's the final official trailer (+ posters) for Rupert Sanders' Ghost in the Shell, direct from YouTube:
Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property (first developed by Masamune Shirow), Ghost in the Shell follows the Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9.

No 2d version is offered in the cinema. I hate this ploy...

When I see this, I'm thinking, somebody should try to do Neuromancer on film. But no, there wouldn't be enough shooting in it, right?

The trailer looks like a HUGE mess.

You are trolling.

What a lazy comment. I honestly feel that way. I thought the first trailer did much better job at getting my interest without smearing sloppy action all over the place.
