Lies and revelations in the latest Ghost in the Shell trailer

Following the short Super Bowl teaser for the upcoming anime adaptation Ghost in the Shell, a full trailer has arrived.

Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders takes the helm on this exciting release, based on the famous Kodansha Comics manga series of the same name (written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow). Hopefully, the quality of the script can match the action on display.

A new Ghost in the Shell trailer offers a bit more story, so you can judge for yourself. In this futuristic world, the human essence, also known as a ghost, can be transferred to different cyborg bodies, called shells. Pilou Asbæk, Michael Pitt, Juliette Binoche, and Takeshi Kitano also star.

In the wake of controversy surrounding Scarlett Johansson's casting in "Ghost In The Shell", the actress herself spoke to clarify her position against allegations of "whitewashing". Devoted to stopping the most unsafe criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic's advancements in cyber technology.

Major only remembers "fragments" of her past, including her near-death during an "attack" and subsequent reconstruction by elite task force Section 9 into a half-human/half-cyborg.
