The New Ghost in the Shell Teaser Feels Like a Cyborg Fever Dream

Say what you want about the problematic casting, but Ghost in the Shell is going to look absolutely bananas.

There’s some new footage in the latest glimpse of the the upcoming Ghost in the Shell movie, which seems to be the commercial expected to debut during Sunday’s big gridiron showdown. If you’re looking for something to be excited about, the over-the-top art direction is probably your best bet. The mindfuck story beats and crazy action choreography in the new promo clip for the Hollywood adaptation of the iconic Japanese manga/anime property are to be expected. It’s the hyper-saturated sensory overload aesthetic of the near-future world that actually makes me want to see this movie.

Video games. Comic books. Blackness.



The only country that seems to have a problem with the casting is the USA. Or rather, a group of SJWs in the USA. Every time I’ve read an interview from other countries about white washing rolls in movies, the reply is apathetic. Big name leads draw big box office which equals big budgets to make these effects laden movies. Even the creator has no problem with the casting of this film.
