Ghost in the Shell Superbowl 51 TV Spot

Ahead of its premiere during Superbowl 51, Paramount Pictures has released the Superbowl movie TV commercial for Ghost in the Shell (2017). The commercial starts out with sex appeal, Major (Scarlett Johansson) in a skin tight latex suit, falling off of a building then crashing into the room of unsuspecting gangsters. What is great about this TV promo is that the viewer gets to see many of the minor characters in the film, including the Major’s Section 9 team getting off of a helicopter and more scenes with the Major’s creator Dr. Ouélet (Juliette Binoche). The back story of the film is also given some screen time at the end of the TV spot.

Ghost in the Shell‘s plot synopsis: based on the manga by Masamune Shirow and its anime adaptation by Mamoru Oshii, “‘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. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.”
