Paramount Pictures has released several new TV spots from the upcoming live-action adaptation of the classic anime Ghost in the Shell, one of which titled “Electrifying” reveals the iconic shot of The Major (Scarlett Johansson) using her therm-optic suit to vanish into thin air.
The shot itself was originally featured in the opening scene of the anime but it looks to be placed during a different time in the film as the shot we see in the TV spot is during the daytime whereas the original took place at night.
While the “Thrilling” spot doesn’t offer anything in terms of new footage, “Reckoning” gives another glimpse at the film’s villain Kuze (Michael Pitt) and teases the mystery to come. You can check out the spots below.
The film stars Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Michael Pitt, Juliette Binoche, Kaori Momoi, Rila Fukushima, Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara, Tuwanda Manyimo, and Takeshi Kitano. Here’s the official synopsis:
Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, “GHOST IN THE SHELL” follows the Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotics advancements in cyber technology.
Ghost in the Shell hits theaters March 31, 2017.
