For Taika Waititi, something about Thor: Ragnarok just made sense. The character’s humor in all his previous appearance almost screamed for a director with his unique comedic skills to come on board the franchise. But did Waititi, who’d previously directed What We Do In the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, ever…
You know when you and a distant friend both loudly agree that you should see each other more often, but then spend months not making plans to visit because you both assume the other party will make the trip first? This right here is the movie-making version of that.
With a little over a month to go before the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie hits theaters, a new trailer is here, and it reveals a lot.
Say what you want about the problematic casting, but Ghost in the Shell is going to look absolutely bananas.
We don’t usually get to cover Wes Anderson movies on io9—but we can now, officially, start writing about his next one. Anderson just announced that his next movie is a stop-motion animation about talking animals called Isle of Dogs. It’s currently filming and has an incredibly impressive voice cast.
When the first Ghost in the Shell movie was released in 1995, it was revolutionary, presenting a whole new way of looking at technology, artificial intelligence, and more. Twenty years later, director Rupert Sanders not only has to live up to that legacy, he’s trying to build upon it, despite being stuck in a cloud of…
After months of controversy surrounding the live-action Ghost in the Shell, we finally have something more fun to talk about. At a live event in Tokyo, the first trailer was unveiled to the world, and it’s pretty fantastic.
A new video shot on the set of Rupert Sanders’ live-action Ghost in the Shell not only had some new behind-the-scenes footage, but a special guest. That would be Mamoru Oshii, the director of the Ghost in the Shell anime films.
Although most people know Ghost in the Shell for its 1995 anime movie, that’s just one part of a sprawling franchise. There have been actually been three manga series, three TV series, and four other movies—spanning at least four different continuities. So the question of which storyline, if any, the live-action Ghost…
During Wednesday night’s broadcast of the Mr. Robot season finale, viewers got their first peek at the upcoming live-action Ghost in the Shell movie with five new teaser trailers.
Being a beautiful and high-profile woman sounds great, if you can get past all the objectification and the often criminal invasions of your privacy. Also, sometimes, even when you definitely didn’t ask them to, nice men who you’re pretty sure you’ve never met make robots modeled after you.
Want to hear someone finish the famously absent last line of Avengers: Age of Ultron? How about Mark Ruffalo doing a spot-on Columbo impression? Would Stellan Skarsgård creepily hitting on his student make you laugh? Well, the Avengers: Age of Ultron gag reel has all that and more.
From a pure profit perspective, a sequel to Lucy makes some sense. But from a story perspective? Nope.
Spoiler alert: it’s a rom-com! “For Black Widow, falling in love can be hard, but it can also be ... INCREDIBLE!” Cardigan-clad Scarlett Johansson, last night’s Saturday Night Live host, is a true hero for participating in this (probably depressingly accurate) sketch.
Anime fans, rejoice — Scarlett Johansson has officially signed on to star in the live-action movie adaptation of Ghost in the Shell. Fan art creators, your time is now.
I like to think myself a connoisseur of science fiction film, or at the very least, a fan. I've seen the birth of the genre with George Méliès and Fritz Lang, enjoyed the black-and-white space tales that so often become MST3k fodder, and reveled in the several Philip K. Dick retellings. But I've never seen anything…
Buried in an article on Warner Bros.' casting choices for their Suicide Squad movie is the news that DreamWorks has reportedly gone after Scarlett Johansson to star in their live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell.
No, this isn't some bizarre spoiler for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner apparently stuck Scarlett Johansson's stunt double's mask on his own face, and the effect is...really strange.
