Paramount Pictures has just unveiled two banners for its upcoming action-thriller Ghost in the Shell that sell the futuristic tone of the film, while showcasing Scarlett Johansson's kick-ass physique.
Directed by Rupert Sanders, the film also stars “Beat” Takeshi Kitano, Michael Carmen Pitt, Pilou Asbaek, Chin Han and Juliette Binoche.
In the near future, Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others.
The film is based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, “The Ghost in the Shell.”
Ghost in the Shell is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
