Here Are Some Teasers For Hollywood's 'Ghost In The Shell'

Short glimpses of Hollywood's version of the popular Japanese property

The Hollywood live-action version of the popular Japanese manga and anime franchise Ghost in the Shell (also known as Kōkaku Kidōtai in Japan) made some waves earlier this year as one of the movies accused of "whitewashing" its cast. The main character in the original was named Major Motoko Kusanagi, is known (so far anyway) as The Major and is being played by Scarlett Johansson in the Hollywood version. To be fair, Kusanagi is a full-body cyborg, so doesn't have to look Japanese.

Anyway, the new movie is due out early next year, and now Paramount Pictures has started promoting the film by releasing a bunch of short teasers:






Here's how Paramount describes the movie:

Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, "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. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic¹s advancements in cyber technology.


Ghost in the Shell raids theaters March 31, 2017.
