New GHOST IN THE SHELL Teaser Hits Web

Paramount finally teases The Major in a series of five, brief trailers for the upcoming cyberpunk film Ghost In The Shell. 

Aired in separate timeslots during the season finale of Mr. Robot, the teasers do not really specify the plot, but they were enough to give the viewers a taste of how the film’s aesthetic would be. However, it would be too early to tell if it captures the manga/anime’s spirit, or otherwise.

Based on the manga and anime franchise of the same name, Masamune Shirow’s Ghost In The Shell focuses on the exploits of Major Motoko Kusanagi and the elite counter-terrorism task force known as Section 9, as they combat different threats ranging from hackers to private paramilitary units. The franchise spawned two comic book series, three animated series, and three animated films, which will be joined by this live-action outing, headlined by actress Scarlett Johansson, who plays The Major.

Ghost In The Shell is slated for a March 31, 2017 release.
