GHOST IN THE SHELL: Trailer, Clip & Featurette

Ghost In the Shell Majors Apartment

A trio of GHOST IN THE SHELL-related newsery/videos to share today, featuring a Singapore trailer, a film clip, and a design featurette! And as well I am re-designing the #ghostintheshellfan dedicated fan-blog with oodles-MORE coverage!

30-seconds trailer for the GHOST IN THE SHELL feature film courtesy of UIP Singapore, for when it premieres on Singapore screens and in MAX 3D on March 30th, 2016.

First time I’m hearing a narrator/voiceover for this film (for me, at least) … Folks might forget that, as much as fans of the O.G. anime or manga are both familiar with the story (along with their very own opinions), there are perhaps legion of folks "out there" who might have zero memories or impressions of GITS, and might need some help in understanding the reasons why folks should want to plonk down cash for tickets and popcorn, come Premiere Day, besides recognising actress “Scarlett Johansson”, innit? :)

There is no need to wonder "WHY" Johansson was cast, in lieu of a "Japanese actress", the reasons are pretty clear cut, if you want them to be :)

As long as folks figure out these films are meant/made for “commercial gains”, and not to pander to our collective fandom, everything’ll be “easier” to swallow, IMHO.

Here’s yet another clip titled “Deep Dive”, to add to the previous film clips - whereby The Major dives into the mecha-conciousness to investigate and nearly gets drowned in a sea of naysayers and negativity surrounding the live action feature film even before said film’s premiere … no, wait…

A splendid behind-the-scenes featurette touring the Major’s Apartment, describing what you might not necessarily know more about the function of the space in the upcoming GHOST IN THE SHELL feature film, including a look at her “walk-in” weapons and “mecha-parts”! And that “door leads out to Hong Kong”? #NICE
