Paramount Pictures has released a 5-minute glimpse of “Ghost In The Shell” and we can’t wait to see the rest of the movie.
Here’s the synopsis of the movie according to Paramount Pictures: “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.”
It looks like Paramount is trying to stick really close to the source material so this is going to be one epic adaptation. Check out the trailer below:
