So, to be fair, the new trailer for THE GHOST IN THE SHELL looks badass, Like, really badass. But, not so badass that it makes me forget that the lead character--the film's carrier of badassery--is a popular Japanese manga comic book series heroine played in this film adaptation by...Scarlett Johansson, seemingly the only white character in the film. Nice try, though. A for effort.
I'm not going to revisit my rant from a few months ago (if you'd like to check it out, here's that blog post), but know that I am still salty about all of this.
Here's the synopsis again:
Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, “GHOST IN THE SHELL” follows 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.
I am just going to leave this trailer here with you:
GHOST IN THE SHELL opens in theaters March 31, 2017.
