Well, This Sure Is Another ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Trailer

To say we aren’t exactly jazzed about the white-washed Ghost in the Shell live action adaptation would be an understatement. I could go on, or you could just dig through our coverage of this train wreck. Today we got a new trailer for the film, and… well… it’s totally that?

Not really a lot to say I guess.

I mean, the film remains as problematic as ever, and the visuals are cribbed straight from the 90s anime film adaptation of the series. It remains visually stunning, and it looks like there’s an interesting plot. But with Scarlett Johansson (who for the record we normally love as an action star) playing The Major, we just can’t get excited for this.

Ghost in the Shell comes out March 31st.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
