It’s not too long now until we get to see whether Hollywood has been successful with its adaptation of the classic anime, Ghost In The Shell. To help make its case, a five-minute clip has been released, taking us into this tech-heavy, futuristic world.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘In the near future, Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others. Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, “The Ghost in the Shell.”’
Take a look at the extended clip below. The movie is in cinemas on March 31st. [Read more…]
