Ahead of its hugely-anticipated release, the good folks at Paramount Pictures UK have provided Filmoria with a brand new featurette for Ghost in the Shell.
Starring Scarlett Johansson as The Major, the film is one of our 20 Must-See Movies Still to Come in 2017, and is directed by Snow White and the Hunstman‘s Rupert Sanders. In this new video – entitled “Scarlett as Major” – the acclaimed actress discusses her role in the upcoming Manga adaptation, and how the legacy of the Ghost in the Shell franchise has continued to live on. Check it out below.
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.
Ghost in the Shell launches into UK cinemas on 30th March, and we simply cannot wait. The movie stars Scarlett Johansson, Juliette Binoche, Michael Pitt, Beat Takeshi Kitano, Pilou Asbaek, Rila Fukushima, Kaori Momoi, Chin Han, and Danusia Samal.
