Ghost in the Shell Featurette

A movie featurette for Ghost in the Shell‘s (2017) has been released by Paramount Pictures. Many had doubts about this film but this featurette may quite them. At the very least, it will sooth nerves. The set design and the action in this upcoming sci-fi film look outstanding, helped in no small part by the presence of action film aficionado Scarlett Johansson and the direction of Rupert Sanders.

It’s the individual film scenes presented in this featurette (and what the viewer will get to witness) that really make it stand out. They will certainly build positive buzz for the film. During this featurette, the viewer gets to see how those scenes, some from director Mamoru Oshii‘s 1995 seminal anime adaptation of the Ghost in the Shell manga, are created and re-created. Oshii actually makes a set visit to Sanders’ Ghost in the Shell set and speaks about what he saw and his feelings regarding the adaptation, especially Scarlett Johansson.

The official first trailer for Ghost in the Shell will premiere this weekend in Tokyo, Japan. Paramount will then make the trailer available online. We will bring it to you as soon as it is available.

Ghost in the Shell‘s plot synopsis: “Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, “GHOST IN THE SHELL” follows the Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9.
