'Ghost in the Shell' releases 5 new teasers

Paramount Pictures have released the first teasers for its upcoming Ghost in the Shell live-action remake staring Scarlett Johansson. The five brief teasers provide a glimpse into a futuristic Japan featuring Cyborg policewoman The Major, played by Johansson. We also get a look at Takeshi Kitano as Chief Daisuke Aramaki. Check out all five teasers below.

The film has drawn some controversy following Johansson's casting as The Major, whose name is ​Motoko Kusanagi in the original manga and anime. Producer Steven Paul has defended the casting choice saying, "​There [are] all sorts of people and nationalities in the world in Ghost in the Shell. We’re utilizing people from all over the world. There’s Japanese in it. There’s Chinese in it. There’s English in it. There’s Americans in it.”

Ghost in the Shell is directed by Rupert Sanders and will be released on March 31, 2017.
