The First Ghost in the Shell Teasers Are Mighty Cryptic, But Hey, They Exist


From the start, the film adaptation of Ghost in the Shell has been something of a beleaguered production, plagued by fandom concerns about changes to the original manga series and, more disconcertingly, by accusations of whitewashing. Those controversies might be what you think about when you watch the first set of ten-second teasers from Ghost in the Shell. Or, you might think, huh. From the teasers, we can see that Ghost in the Shell stars Scarlett Johansson. We cannot see that Johansson plays a cyborg policewoman in the year 2029, though that is also true. Cryptic stuff. Creepy stuff. Confusing stuff. That's the vibe of the teasers, which you can watch by starting above and working your way down. Huh.
