A new trailer for the Ghost in the Shell live action movie has been released a little over a month before the film is expected to hit the big screen.
Paramount Pictures dropped the action-packed two-minute trailer on YouTube which can give viewers a better grasp of the plot.
To sum it up, the trailer gives a glimpse of the likely dilemma Major Motoko Kusanagi (Scarlett Johansson) will face as it unravels during the film.
Earlier, Johansson finally addressed the whitewashing issue that was being hurled at her casting for a role that fans believed to be better suited for an Asian actress.
“I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person. Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive,” she told Marie Claire.
“Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders,” she added.
Ghost in the Shell, which is directed Rupert Sanders, is based on Masamune Shirow's manga. The film will hit theatres on March 31.
