Following the release of ten 10-15 second snippets of video from Ghost in the Shell, Paramount Pictures has released a full trailer – introduced by Scarlett Johansson.

Accusations of whitewashing have been at least partially addressed by named the main character simply The Major – but otherwise, the trailer definitely seems to be a reasonably faithful adaptation of the of the original anime feature.

The trailer suggests both the sumptuously technological world of the anime and the films that have been influenced by the anime – films like The Matrix and Ex Machina – as well as the films that influenced the anime (like Blade Runner).

The trailer follows the break. Feel free to just jump right in. Ghost in the Shell will be in theaters on March 31st, 2017.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back – based on the novel by Lee Child – is both a typical and atypical Tom Cruise action movie. It has a decent plot; plenty of action, chases (on foot and by car), clever solutions to difficult problems, and a lead female role that is an equal protagonist – and another one that could almost be a kid Reacher.

Directed by Edward Zwick (Glory, The Last Samurai), Never Go Back is plain, (kinda) old-fashioned action movie fun.

CyberTeaser City: Ghost In The Shell!

Despite the fact that manga characters were generally designed as round-eyed and pale of skin (originally to attract a North American and European audience – everyone wants a global audience), much has been made (and complained) about the casting of Scarlett Johannson as Major Motoko Kusanagi in the live-action Ghost In The Shell.

Paramount has released five, count ’em five(!), very brief teasers for Ghost In The Shell, and they look crazy intriguing. See the other four after the break.

Ghost In The Shell opens on March 31st, 2017.
