A live action version of the Anime Movie Ghost In The Shell is in fact a real thing, and in the past I have written two posts about this subject, the first one when I first found out about this project ( Read it HERE ) and the second a look into the controversy and accusation of "white washing" by Hollywood because Scarlet Johansson was cast as the Major ( Read that one HERE ). Well now I am writing to share with you all some clips I just saw on ChrunchRoll's news section from the movie which are on youtube. You can see those clips HERE.
Now there isn't a lot we can learn from the clips as they are so short, however there is one thing we certainly can learn from them. One of the fears surrounding this film by the fans of the source material is that the setting would be changed. It was feared that the story would be removed from Japan and placed in a futuristic version of New York, or LA but from what we can see in these clips that fear can be put to rest or so I hope anyway. These clips make me more hopeful for this movie and now we just have to sit and wait too see weather Ms Johansson can do the role of Motoko Kusanagi.
