New Clip: Ghost In The Shell

Next year, director Rupert Sanders bring his live-action take of the classic manga and anime Ghost In The Shell to the screen: a cyberpunk thriller set in a future where humans and machines have become inextricably intertwined. Thus far, Paramount’s starry adaptation has appeared to us in a string of 10-second long “glitches” or teasers, each providing a tantalising image or two from the movie.

The latest clip, released ahead of a Ghost In The Shell fan event in Tokyo, reveals the extent of the 1995 animated movie’s influence on Sanders’ production. It shows a brief moment from an encounter between Scarlett Johansson’s Major, shrouded in her invisibility outfit, and a woefully unprepared bad guy, who’s sent cartwheeling into the air. It’s pretty much a shot-for-shot recreation of an early sequence in Mamoru Oshii’s classic anime feature.

Ghost In The Shell is out in UK cinemas on the 31st March 2017.
