Are you buying a ticket to see The Major next month?

It’s been a few days since the release of Ghost In The Shell’s new trailer and fans weren’t disappointed. This trailer topped its predecessors by having a bag with even more goodies to see. Everything from huge explosions, awesome hand to hand combat scenes, and some pretty off the wall CGI. The opening scene with the geisha robots on all four limbs paved the way for the rest of the preview. Even without seeing the film we can tell Scarlett Johansson does a good job of connecting with ‘The Major’s’ character. By showing the puzzle she’s slowly trying to connect within her mind in order to uncover herself.

The Major - Ghost In The Shell

A few things we can expect from the film

With this being a live action film adaptation you can expect some change. Unlike its anime/manga counterpart this film is taking a different course in terms of telling The Major’s story. We know that she will be coming to terms with who she is. The first set of questions arise, does a fully prosthetic body and a cybernetic brain still classify her as human? With a new villain appearing, by the name of Kuze, to help her answer these questions and present a huge conspiracy that only The Major can tackle.

Now there has been backlash from fans due to the fact that the movie isn’t following the “original” story. One thing many have failed to notice, however, is this is a live action remake. If it followed the original step-by-step you wouldn’t feel any true reason to go see it. You can pass this one up because of its new direction on the franchise or suck it up and have some fun on March 31st, 2017!
