New Ghost In The Shell Video Explores Movie's Cyber-Cops
"I'm going in."
The long-awaited live-action adaptation of the classic anime movie Ghost in the Shell hits theaters at the end of the month. A new featurette has been released that takes a look at Section 9, the film's heavily armed anti-terrorism taskforce. Check it out below:
In a recent interview with Den of Geek, director Rupert Sanders spoke about the approach that he and star Scarlett Johansson took to Ghost in the Shell. "Scarlett and I were very categorical that we wanted to do something different," he said. "We wanted to exist beyond the Marvel universe, beyond the DC universe. We wanted to be the rogue, I guess.
"I think we've succeeded in that. It's a really emotional and hopefully thought-provoking film, but it also delivers what you want to see in a film for that kind of audience. You want to see a big, action packed film, but at the same time, as you're moving along, you're into the action because you care about the action because you care about what they're going through."
Ghost in the Shell was one of the key anime films to break through to a western audience in the '90s. It was based on Masamune Shirow's manga, and was followed by three more movies, plus a number of video games.
The movie also stars Pilou Asbæk, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, and Michael Pitt. It hits theaters on March 30.
