Take A Glitchy First Look At Ghost In The Shell


Scarlett Johansson stars in Ghost in the Shell as a cyborg policewoman on a mission to bring down a nefarious hacker.

Taking the lead role Scarlett Johansson plays The Major, the leader of an elite special ops task force known as Section 9. This glitchy trailer gives a hint at the visuals expected in the film whilst giving away little else to anyone who isn’t a fan of the anime the film is based upon.

Criticism has been raised over the film’s casting with the accusation of ‘whitewashing’ being the main focus. Scarlett Johansson takes the lead role which has always been represented as an Asian character. Director Rupert Sanders will be hoping to quash these criticisms by producing a tense, engaging couple of hours of entertainment.

Ghost in the Shell is in post production and is expected in cinemas from March 2017.
