We've been seeing strange teaers of Rupert Sanders-directed live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell. These short "glitches" show bits of footage that made us wonder what the hell is going on. The latest blipvert for the cyberpunk film just made its way online and it features Scarlet Johansson's The Major in a Cyberpunk-style glitchy clip with the message: "They didn't save your life. They stole it." I expect the story will have some kind of mind-blowing plot twist, and that message hints the direction it's going.
Watch the glitch:
The film is based on the manga by Masamune Shirow. Johansson is playing a special ops cyborg, who's the head of an elite task force known as Section 9. Her team is in charge of taking down dangerous criminals, and her main target is The Laughing Man, a terrorist dedicated to erasing all of Hanka’s cyber technology.
The Ghost in the Shell will hit theaters on March 31.
