A decently lengthy trailer has finally been unleashed for the highly dreaded (or perhaps anticipated) Ghost in the Shell live action film, allowing hardcore fans to better assess the film’s potential and its faithfulness to the original creation – something which those unfamiliar with the series will likely not even consider.

The trailer and its vast amount of effects:

A previously revealed behind-the-scenes video:

The live action Ghost in the Shell film currently possesses a debut date of March 31st.

    I am mostly bothered by the Major being implyed to not only be the first full body cyborg, but also this to be a very recent, uncommon and unheard of procedure. that and the weird slow mo camera angles highlithing the not-as-stellar-as-they-seem-to-think CG and Scarlett looks very uncomfortably tense in most shots. girl, relax your shoulders!

    Actually, she is also refered to being the "first of her kind" in the anime and manga. The kind in question being a full cyborg since childhood.

    In the 1995 movie you can even see people walking around that look just like her, because they have the same mass produced model.

    She looks mass produced but her body is a state of the art military model.

    I was surprisingly fine with the trailer until the Depeche Mode tune kicked in. I mean, even if its a great song, wtf is it doing in this trailer? Way to ruin the mood. Havent they ever heard the term "unfitting music"? How the hell can that compare to Kenji Kawai's Making of a Cyborg? Makes me doubt that the ppl behind the film have the proper vision, that they're not afraid to take risks and instead pander to whats already popular, which is far from the ideology behind what creates original masterpieces like the GitS manga and anime film. Although, sure it still doesn't look as good as the original anime film, but I was suprised it at least got the look right and recreated many iconic scenes, but the tone is all wrong, Its just gonna be another pretty action film with some pseudo science trown about. Basically "Lucy 2", although I have no problem with Scarlet, I actually find her more fitting here than as Blackwiddow... the only problem Ive ever had with her is that she can't ever seem to conjour up a strong or sexy voice.

    All trailers have unfitting music these days, but I'm glad at least they used a decent song for a change, and not some modern pop cancer.

    technically it is pop, just not modern pop... so slightly better... and just cuz most other trailers these days do it too doesnt give it (or any others) a pass

    Fact: 95% of the population is stupid
    Fact: as population grows, making stupid entertainment assets will get more profitable

    2+2 = for something to be as profitable as possible, it needs to be stupid

    Simple math

    "Bitch is supposed to be naked.."

    This is a film, not an anime, you really expect the director to have her running around completely naked throughout a lot of the film? You weebs are pathetic, this looks a damnsight better and more faithful to the anime than a lot of shit that has come out of hollywood lately, but you just want to hate it before you've even seen it.

    The Japanese are apparently mostly pleased about Scarlett playing the role too, she does look a lot like her, and the Major is supposed to look Caucasian. They should have chose Ron Perlman to play the role of Batou though.

    Aside from the music and overall tone in the trailer, it looks like they're mostly keeping faithful, but I reserve judgement until I see the whole thing. I just have zero faith in the director. I mean, he could try hard to just recreate the anime but in the end it still needs a good director to be a good film.

    you're the idiot, scarlet johanson is ugly as shit, her body type for the role is so freaking wrong, its off the charts.

    shes short, thick, and stumpy looking, god did you see her in that alien movie where she went naked? oh the horrors. im still scarred from it. that body suit in this movie shes wearing, just going to scar my eyes more.

    she might of been hot when she was discovered, now its all photo editing and whatever the hell they do in hollywood.

    just seeing her movements in previews, it just isn't fluid at all, you need someone truly fit.

    and oh god her bangs, that hair, shit just doesn't work. my eyes just cant take it.

    Tbh, I think the only better choice for the role would have been the actress from Pacific Rim. ScarJo is ok, but I feel like she's doing a bad cosplay than really owning the role. I blame the people doing her look and makeup. Motoko is supposed to have a pretty thick build and height can be fixed with movie magic if its a problem. Even her chest size is around accurate, which is crazy rare for a live action film adaptation. I dont think ScarJo is gorgeous but she's nowhere near as bad as you're making her out to be.

    Nah, Rinko Kukichi looks way too asian to be Motoko.
    Not to say Scarlett is any better, but let's not get delusional here.

    You also have to consider the fact that she alone will sell this movie like hotcakes. Rinko wouldn't.
    Would just be another Suicide Squad at best, but without the funding from Scarlett even that would've been a dream.

    It's not about whitewashing, it's about terrible casting. With a more fitting white female actor there wouldn't have been any meaningful moaning about the race.

    If you wanted a visually fitting actor, then it would've needed to be one of those chinese-caucasian mixtures with hidden acting talents and a truckload of photoshop.

    I never understood why people like her. Especially after she tried to use her fame to tell people who to vote for.

    I don't care who they wanted to promote. I hate seeing franchises used to promote unrelated shit. Way to ruin the entire franchise.

    Death Note doesn't have enough action for Hollywood to be interested in it.

    Instead, it's much more likely they'll choose Dragon B-
    Oh, wait... they already did.

    I remember when Hollywood focused more on telling believable stories within the technological limitations they had to work with. Amazing, clever stuff.

    Now they just poop out lengthy CG of flashy explosions with badly constructed narrative full of holes and peppered with political correctness. No thanks.

    I think Hollywood is just now starting to come back to life. This and the Fullmetal Alchemist movies are examples of hints that Hollywood is just starting to maybe make good movies again. Not right away, but probably slowly over the course of the next 6 years.

    Thats actually been true since the late 60s. The Hollywood mogul machine that Hollywood was famous for has been replaced by independent film makers and various corporations located nowhere near California. Somehow since then "Hollywood", rather than refer to a specific city in California, has come to mean any western-made film with a big budget and the perpetual cynicism that the producers of these films are only concered with making big bucks at the cost of anything else of merit. Honestly, I chalk up a lot of mistakes attributed to "hollywood" not to greed but rather blind fanboyism and film illiteracy on the part of certain directors. Its not that theyre simply greedy and make decisions based on how much financial return they'll make, I think their hearts are often in the right place, they're just too often idiots with bad taste/judgement. Its rare now that anyone would fork out the millions to produce a high budget film thst doesnt have a competent director and script, unless the producer is an idiot. But things have goten better over the past few years as we actualy have intelligent blockbusters now ever since the early 2000s with Batman Begins and LotR. Before that, films were either seen as good smart films or mindless popcorn films, but now we have smart popcorn films.

    Motoko Kusanagi is a codename. In the Mamoru Oshii's movie she has blue eyes and has the same face as the blonde android the puppet master was controlling. Also you may notice everything is written in chinese not in japanese, because Newport (the capital of Japan in gits) is based on Hong Kong.

    No, I also hope that the movie is same race as original work. It is that SJW try to spin it into White Are Evil, Fuck White issue. Next time SJW will want Black Trans Gay Muslim illegal Immigrant combined into one to become main character.

    That's what happened, but it somehow turned into "SJWs" ranting about whitewashing.
    Most of the criticism about her casting came from the fans, not delusional SJWs and rightfully so because she doesn't fit the part of Motoko at all.
    There is a lot of other white actors who would've fit better and would have gotten little to no whines.

    At the same time, the quality of the movie looked pretty top notch. Can't imagine it getting 1/100th of the funding if it was starred by anyone except her.

    So have white people gotten so defensive these days too, just like everyone else? Such a thing as "reverse racism" already exists for you people? Nobody has ever demonized white people for things like whitewashing, in fact whitewashing isnt exclusive to white people, ive seen tons of other non-white people doing it too, like we've all been brainwashed to treating, if not seeing, white ppl as superior... often its as if its subconscious, not blatant racism. After centuries of fighting white superiority its bound to have dug into the world's psyche. Most white people understand this when the idea of whitewashing is brought up (usually by other white people themselves). It exists, mostly in Hollywood's past, but it still exists. Try watching top films from the last century... even Gandhi was played by a white guy. Its not that there's anything wrong with that, it's that its as if only white people exist in the world to play every lead role, even the roles of non-white people. Opportunities at the highest levels are rarely given to non-white people even when the role is screaming for it. They could have easily picked a great actress of Japanese decent to play Motoko but no, they got lazy or coped out... or yeah, even whitewashed because the ppl behind the casting might have thought it'd sell more tickets to have an established, popular white actress instead. OR, yeah, they lacked faith that a great Japanese-american actress without the same level of established fame wouldn't prevent the film from getting funded. Im not outraged, just disappointed. It'd just be so cool to see American cinema holding up great talent representing people fromall over the world through diverse lead roles. For the record, I beleive Scarlet is the most perfect white American actress they could have picked for this role of a Japanese girl who becomes a cyborg.

    Wanting a character to stay close to the source material does not constitute the ramblings of an SJW. Saying that Santa Claus is Black, however, is a whole other matter.
