'Ghost In The Shell' Movie Releases Five Teaser Trailers; Reveals Scarlett Johansson As A 'Hot' Cyborg
"Ghost In The Shell" movie recently released a minute-long trailer, divided into five individual clips, giving fans a glimpse of the controversial film.
It can be recalled that "Ghost In The Shell" movie initially received criticisms due to Scarlett Johansson's casting as the popular manga character Major Motoko Kusanagi, a Japanese cyborg law enforcer. The said casting has sparked accusations of "whitewashing" in Hollywood. Fans and critics alike expressed their dismay on the "ethnically inappropriate" lead character.
Producer Steven Paul tried to defend the film by claiming that "everybody is going to end up being really happy with it." He also clarified that Johansson's character is technically not Motoko Kusanagi but a character called Major adding to a more "international tone."
"Ghost In The Shell" film has been accused of using visual effects that can shift Johansson's ethnicity and make her appear more Asian. Paramount Pictures acknowledged the test but strongly denied Johansson's involvement in it.
"A test was done related to a specific scene for a background actor which was ultimately discarded. Absolutely no visual effects tests were conducted on Scarlett's character and we have no future plans to do so."
Whitewashing aside, the new trailers seem to stick with the dark, moody vibe of the "Ghost In The Shell" anime series. However, some fans find the trailers cryptic, thus adding to their anticipation. Check out all five clips combined in one trailer below.
Previously, avid fans also got a glimpse of “Ghost In The Shell” movie cast in the alleged leaked photos.
