Ghost In The Shell

Next year we finally get a live-action version of Ghost In The Shell, the hugely successful manga from Masamune Shirow that has defined the genre and has been a Japanese pop culture beacon ever since it was originally published in 1989.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, and Michael Pitt, and directed by Rupert Sanders, there's obvious pressure on the first Hollywood version of Ghost In The Shell to match its predecessors. Over the weekend, Paramount celebrated the release of Ghost In The Shell's first trailer with a huge event in Tokyo, which gave us an inside look at the costumes, weapons, and concept art that will make up the film.

You can have a gander at what was on display, below. Starting with none other than Scarlett Johansson's character The Major:

The Major

The field commander of a Cyborg counter-cyber terrorist squad named Section 9, The Major is described as a "full-body prosthesis" augmented cybernetic human and also just so happens to be played by Scarlett Johansson. As well as the above snazzy bomber jacket, which she wore during an interrogation scene we were privy to at the event, and the Major's police bike Tavor SMG weapon, we were also presented with a look at her tactical uniform and bright white thermoptic pistol.
