After a long and fairly controversial road to the big screen, Paramount Pictures’ adaptation of ‘Ghost in the Shell’ will finally hit theaters this week. Naturally, the studio has been pushing Rupert Sanders’ live-action take on the seminal futuristic anime and manga like crazy. Although, before the public can check out Scarlett Johansson in one of the most talked about roles of her career, the studio has released one last trailer to get more people on board and in the theater during their opening weekend.
While many of the previously released promotional materials for the film focused on the action that we can expect to see Johansson’s character get into and the epic special effects, the final trailer primarily focuses on the story. Despite offering some new sequences here and there that people can definitely get excited about, this preview mostly explores the events that send The Major on this journey to learn more about what she is and what she’s a part of. And now more than ever, there’s an emphasis on who she can trust and the secrets that are surrounding her very existence. With only a few days left to presumably get some answers, you can jump the gun just a little bit and check out this final trailer below:
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 Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.
