Paramount Pictures have just released the first ‘OFFICIAL’ teaser of Scarlett Johansson wearing her ‘Ghost in the Shell’ character’s ‘NUDE’ thermoptic suit, and she looks great!
The 31-year-old actress – who plays existential robo-cop The Major/Motoko Kusanagi – emerged from water clad in her invisible armor after punching an unidentified man, according to sources.
The 14-second teaser is just another tiny glimpse at the live-action adaptation of Mamoru Oshii’s 1995 anime feature and Masamune Shirow’s 1989 manga series, reportedly.
The 2070-set reimagining – hitting UK/US theaters March 31 – centers on ‘what it means to be human’ and it’s being directed by philandering filmmaker Rupert Sanders, according to US news sources.
Upon news of Scarlett’s casting in January of 2015, fans and media action groups accused producers of ‘whitewashing’ the iconically Japanese character, according to media sources.
