Anime Talk: Live Action Ghost In The Shell clips!


ghost-shell

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.

    I have yet to see the original GiTS. Tried watching the series (GiTS: Stand-Alone Complex) but the arching plot was way overly-complicated. Plus, everyone on the planet is some sort of cyborg in a brain case?

    At some point, I will watch the original movies. Definitely before I see the live-action film. All that said, these clips are impossibly short to judge. So I don’t want to say that Scarlet Johansson does not have the Major’s vibe based on a 10-second clip. But, she doesn’t. Even in a purple wig, she’s still the Black Widow sans Russian accent.

  2. Totally agree with AP’s last point.
    It’s weird because I was actually kinda excited about this film, but those clips showing so little has actually lessened my excitement. Hopefully they do a decent length teaser trailer soon.

    I’m just hoping the microclips are the best way to prevent spoilers, like so many people have failed to avoid. As for character overlap, I’m afraid there’s a lot of it in scriptwriting. Far too many scripts have been written with no original content. Natural byproduct of an industry depending on rewrites and reboots.
