Scarlett Johansson's Ghost in the Shell Film Gets the First Trailer
Paramount has just released five, 10-second cryptic teasers for the upcoming live-action “Ghost in the Shell” — adapted from the influential Japanese manga series of the same name — offering a descent look at Johansson’s costume. Watch the teaser below.
The movie takes place in a fictional, futuristic Japanese city and follows “The Major” (Johansson) and the members of a covert task force within the Japanese National Public Safety Commission made up of former detectives and military operatives. The task force fights cybercriminals in a dark, biotech future where the line between computers and humans is marred (usually with a lot of elaborate and dramatic wires and cybernetic plugs). Major is a member of this crime-fighting brigade but is also a symbol of the future’s blurred lines of biotechnology as the character has gone through various mechanical upgrades to her person which endow her with many special abilities.
Ghost in the Shell uploads into theaters on March 31, 2017.
