With the live action Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johansson coming to the end of its shoot the studio have released five distinctive teaser trailers as a taster for what we can look forward to next year when the film is released and here they all are for your delectation.
The live action film of the manga classic is directed by Rupert Sanders whose visuals are on a par with the best of Ridley Scott’ s films and here Scarlett Johansson plays The Major, a human-cyborg hybrid special ops cop leading a task force called Section 9. Their directive is to stop dangerous criminals and extremists and their latest task is to deal with an enemy who intend to destroy Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.
Look out for the trailer starring the incomparable Takeshi Kitano who is a comedian / light entertainment presenter in Japan yet makes some incredibly violent though brilliant films such as Hana Bi, Violent Cop, Sonatine & Zatoichi. If you’ve never seen any of his films try and catch one – for his home audience it’s a bit like Benny Hill starring in The Raid.
US release date is 17th March 2017 and in the UK 31st March 2017
