First teasers for Ghost In The Shell arrive online

Paramount Pictures have recently released a striking batch of teasers for Rupert Sanders' (Snow White And The Huntsman) Ghost In The Shell.





While teasers for trailers have become a phenomenon in recent years, now, for the live action Ghost In The Shell we are getting little footage snippets that aren't specifically trailers themselves.





Adapted from Masamune Shirow's original 1989 manga, Ghost In The Shell sees Scarlett Johansson (Lucy) as a special ops cyborg at the head of an elite task force known as Section 9. The team, working for Hanka Robotics, is in charge of stopping dangerous criminals and extremists, and their prime target is The Laughing Man, a terrorist dedicated to wiping out all of Hanka's cyber technology.




Johansson's Lucy (2014) co-star Pilou Asbæk is aboard to play Batou, the second best fighter in the section and her trusted lieutenant, with Juliette Binoche (Cosmopolis), 'Beat' Takeshi Kitano (The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi), Michael Pitt (Seven Psychopaths) and Kaori Momoi (Memoirs Of A Geisha) also appearing. The members of Section 9 are played by Chin Han (The Dark knight), Danusia Samal (Tyrant), Lasarus Ratuere (The Mule), Yutaka Izumihara (Unbroken) and Tuwanda Manyimo (The Rover).













With a script by Jonathan Herman (Straight Outta Compton), Ghost In The Shell will arrive in US cinemas on 31 March 2017. For more on Ghost In The Shell, check out our Ghost In The Shell crash course guide.
