She’s a cyborg with a past – a family, even – but which side will Scarlett Johansson’s The Major end up on?

Coming over like a cross between ‘Robocop’ and ‘Blade Runner’, the new ‘Ghost In The Shell’ trailer reveals more about this massively ambitious, anime-adapted sci-fi.

Rebuilt after ‘an attack’, Johansson’s counter-cyberterrorist field commander is on the trail of a deadly enemy – played by ‘Boardwalk Empire’s Michael Pitt.

There’s more of Johansson’s now-infamous ‘nude suit’ – the invisibility armour seen in previous trailers – plus that freaky-looking robot geisha, which looks far more deadly in this clip.


Joined on the bill by ‘Borgen’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ star Pilou Asbæk, Juliette Binoche, Chin Han, and Takeshi Kitano, the Rupert Sanders-directed actioner is due out across the UK on March 31.
