After paying money I will never get back for the disappointment that is 2017's Ghost in the Shell, I realized that it hadn’t scratched my itch for a Tokyo-esque sci-fi tech opera. It delivered, mostly, on the dystopian vision of Tokyo that Io9's Evan Narcisse called “futureshock design porn.” But while its setting…
Last night, Kotaku’s intrepid anime and snack reporters, me and Mike Fahey, saw the anticipated and controversial live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell, an anime we both love.

As part of the promotion for the upcoming live-action Ghost in the Shell, a new “I am Major” website was launched that allowed folks to upload their own photos and enter their own text. It’s damn perfect troll fodder.

Here’s your first brief look at Scarlett Johansson in motion in the new Ghost in the Shell movie, pointing guns and touching lady’s faces.

Next February, Matt Damon stars in a movie centered around the Great Wall of China. According to the film’s director Zhang Yimou, there’s a reason for that and it’s not whitewashing.
Just a quick update: According to Scarlett Johansson’s publicist, two of the photos taken of the Hong Kong Ghost in the Shell shoot show her stand-in and not the actress herself. Noted!
Until now, we haven’t gotten that good of a look at Scarlett Johansson in the upcoming Ghost in the Shell film. The only released publicity still is a profile shot, so it’s hard to see how she’ll pull off augmented-cybernetic human Motoko Kusanagi.
