Better Design Trailer: Ghost in the Shell!


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.
