Like most of you, I wasn’t thrilled when I heard Scarlett Johansson was cast in an adaptation for the hit anime film Ghost in the Shell, but as each trailer has shown us, it’s all about making an overall great film with a story that should intrigue us.
Whether you know about the anime or not is irrelevant at this point because regardless of Scar-Jo’s casting, she looks terrific as the Major within this Blade Runner meets Lucy type of universe. It’s visually spectacular, but we all know that visuals don’t constitute a great film in the long run. This looks grim, focused, dark, action packed, and surprisingly fun. It isn’t exactly Avengers style fun, but there’s a lot to behold from the trailers alone.
The best thing about Hollywood and fans is that we both say the same thing, “what have you done for me lately?” That’s the mindset I have for these trailers Ghost in the Shell keep pumping out as they’ve only grown to be more promising with each video. Are you excited or still not impressed? Let me know in the comments.
