Scarlett Johansson is taking the mantle of Motoko Kusanagi as “The Major” in Paramount’s new Ghost in the Shell film. Now, their official YouTube channel has started streaming several brand new TV spots. These new videos tease the film’s story, as well as all the action.
The new videos also include their “Kuze” spot, which teases the main antagonist. Micheal Pitt plays the villainous Kuze, whose film version is actually an amalgamation of several Ghost in the Shell characters. This includes The Puppet Master, and of course, Kuze himself. Previously, several sources reported that Pitt would be playing the Laughing Man.
Meanwhile, Paramount also started streaming behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming film. This includes a video about director Rupert Sanders’ vision, as well as the “Creating the Shell” featurette.
The film will premiere in Singapore on 30th March, before premiering in the United States the next day, 31st March. It will then premiere a week later in Japan, which will be on 7th April.
