They stole her life and they have stolen our hearts and in 4 weeks time, the live action version Ghost In The Shell will finally make its cinematic debut. Ahead of that debut, Paramount Pictures have unveiled a couple of new character banners…
In the near future, Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others. Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, The Ghost in the Shell.
The movie is directed by Rupert Sanders and will star Scarlett Johansson, “Beat” Takeshi Kitano, Michael Carmen Pitt, Pilou Asbaek, Chin Han and Juliette Binoche.
Ghost In The Shell will arrive in UK and Irish cinemas from 31st March.
