"They did not save your life, they stole it." - We've heard that famous line since the first teaser of the live-action adaptation of Ghost of the Shell was released, but thanks to a new trailer released today, we get more context to that quote. We are also introduced to the main villain, and we get to see The Major's (Scarlet Johansson) determination to take him down. Apparently there's a twist in the film: we'll see the ones who created The Major go against her in the film. "She was supposed to have a clean brain," one of her creators says, but she's not having it. "They created me but they can't control me," the badass Major says. Watch the trailer below:

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.
