First 'Ghost in the Shell' Trailer Is a Stunner: Watch

Seven months after the Scarlett Johansson–starring adaptation of Japanese manga Ghost in the Shell reached a new level of cultural exposure thanks to complaints of whitewashing, there is an actual trailer to watch. Its finely tuned sleekness may not do anything for those still unsure about the whole "ethnicity-shifting" report, but walk-ins are likely to have their minds blown.

Watch above and see how it all feels to you, proud independent thinker.

"Everyone around me, they feel connected to something," says ScarJo's Major (whose name is Major Motoko Kusanagi in the original). "Connected to something I'm not." This is because she's a (human-ish) robot trying to figure out the bendy line between her life and that of a regular homo sapiens, a la hot recent properties Westworld and Ex Machina. While weaving through bullets and conspiracies.

As for those who got psyched about the tiny preview for Major's thermoptic suit, this trailer has your back.  

Directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) and starring Johansson, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche and Michael Pitt, Ghost in the Shell arrives March 31, 2017.
