We’ve seen plenty of teasers for the upcoming Ghost in the Shell live action adaptation. However, today is break from what we’ve seen so far. Finally, Paramount Pictures has released a full trailer for the upcoming Ghost in the Shell film. Paramount Pictures has hosted the full trailer on their Youtube channel and you can check it out here:
While we’ve seen a lot from the previous teaser trailers, the majority of the content involved action scenes without much explanation. This new trailer gives us the best look into what to expect from the film’s plot. The film seems to share a villain with Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. By villain, I mean that the Laughing Man. The hacker seems to be the antagonist in upcoming live action adaptation.
Honestly, the Laughing Man is one of my favorite aspects of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. I would like nothing more than to see the character appropriately captured by this film. However, from what I’ve seen, the film’s version of the Laughing Man does seem to be different from what we’ve seen in the past. So I’m approaching the film cautiously.
I’ll keep it light in case those reading are unfamiliar with the character. As a fan of Ghost in the Shell, I’ll say again that I’m approaching the film with cautious optimism. I want a solid Ghost in the Shell movie. I cannot express how excited I would be to see a Japanese manga series successfully adapted into a film from Hollywood. The doors it just might open.
We’ve seen many teasers but I have to say I was excited to see that this Ghost in the Shell adaptation was finally receiving a full trailer. Let us know how you feel about this new adaptation to the classic series!Tweet
