New footage of the upcoming Ghost in the Shell Scarlett Johansson, was aired last night during the 51st super bowl.
The 30-second clip was certainly action packed as we watched Johansson wield weapons, punch and break her way through glass during last night’s super bowl.
Most of the trailer was made up of past footage from the feature length that Paramount Pictures had already released but this time a voiceover had been used for the big game spot. The Ghost in the Shell Super Bowl Trailer can be viewed just below.
“They did not save your life. They stole it.”
Ghost in the Shell will be the fifth franchise movie made based on the highly popular manga series comics. Johansson, who plays the character The Major, is a cyborg/human who leads a special operations team aimed at bringing down highest level of criminal. While undergoing this mission she comes across revelations from her past.
While the big game spot teaser does appear to have been received well by fans the movie has sadly come under some scrutiny.
Questions and criticism over the casting decision for Johansson have been raised as the popular manga series, which has had not only movies but games, comics etc produced based on it, the character The Major has always been of Japanese ethnicity.
How the movie will be affected by this criticism remains to be seen but there is not long to wait now as the scheduled release is set for March 31st, 2017.
