'Ghost in the Shell' Drops New Action-Packed Teaser Trailer
First things first, it's still quite a bit of misplaced Hollywood casting that Scarlett Johansson will be playing the lead in the upcoming Ghost In The Shell movie. Enough has been written about this issue that hopefully moving forward, films will attempt a more sensitive reasoning when casting films with a clear cultural history. That being said, the teaser for the film at least gets part of the look right:



Resembling many other other futuristic, technologically dominated visions of the future (we're thinking of Blade Runner here), the new teaser promises lots of crumbling buildings and forgotten slums mixed with the sort of luxury high-rises that make any art director or set designer go wild. It will remain to be seen how faithful the film is to the source material, but at the very least it will be something visually mind-blowing to look at. 

Ghost in the Shell hits US theaters March 31st, 2017.
