Behind The Scenes & Interview with Scarlett Johansson on the set of “Ghost in the Shell”


Entertainment Tonight was on the set of Ghost in the Shell, and we get to see a scene being film - an excerpt of which was seen in the recent featurette - for which I have featured screen-snaps for, adding to the ones from this clip.

As well we get to see lil on-camera chat with Johansson (about her kid’s reaction to her look, which funnily paralleled a whole lot of GITS-fans out there as well when her casting was announced HAH :p), and see some more locations of where the filming was taking place - in New Zealand!

“Ghost in the Shell” Featurette: "Mamoru Oshii"


Mamoru Oshii, director of the animated "Ghost in the Shell" films, discusses director Rupert Sanders' vision for the upcoming live-action GHOST IN THE SHELL film from Paramount Pictures - starring Scarlett Johansson, and essentially backs this film up, and as well Scarlet’s casting in the role as “The Major”, no doubt to pacify the naysayers (about the “whitewashing” of the casting of Motoko, threatening to derail this film, unfortunately), and I am down with that.

I want to be able to enjoy this film for what it is, and even to diss it, but AFTER watching it. But of course, that’s just me… is it?

Teaser for GHOST IN THE SHELL Trailer Launch on Nov 13 in Tokyo


In anticipation of the trailer launch scheduled for November 13th in Tokyo, the live action GHOST IN THE SHELL movie has offered folks a teaser (seen above), which features an adaptation of the by-now-iconic scene in the 1995 anime movie, where Motoko (in this instance, Scarlett Johansson as “The Major”) beats down a perp in the busy market, clad in thermo—optics AKA “invisible camo” mode!

Since the earlier released 5 x teaser spots, this is the longest scene from the movie shown, and I am excited for the March 31st 2017 premiere (in the USA), “whitewashing” uproar notwithstanding :p

Check out the anime counterpart below, along with some select screen-snaps :)

5 x Teasers for #GhostInTheShell live action film Released!


Time for leaked images are over .. Paramount Pictures has released a total of 5 x teasers for the live action “Ghost in the Shell Movie”, with a scheduled March 31st, 2017 premiere date set in the USA, while Singapore’s is March 30th! (IMDb)

Directed by Rupert Sanders, written by Jonathan Herman, Jamie Moss (writer) and Masamune Shirow, (manga), the film stars Scarlett Johansson as “The Major” (we see her in a few of the teasers posted here), and as well see in one of the teaser was Takeshi Kitano (as “Daisuke Aramaki”).

I like what I see here, a squint as a series of sequences of hopefully GOOD things to come! I remain optimistic and hopeful!
