The new trailer for Ghost in the Shell unveils a little more of the Major’s backstory as envisioned in the 2017 live-action film. The second trailer featuring Scarlett Johansson also provides a few very brief clips of the action that drives this film adaptation of the popular Japanese manga. Directed by Rupert Sanders, the cast also includes Pilou Asbæk, Takeshi Kitano, Michael Pitt, and Juliette Binoche. Paramount Pictures is releasing Ghost in the Shell in 2D, RealD 3D and IMAX 3D on March 31, 2017.

The Plot: Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, the film 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.
