Ghost In The Shell: 'Major Action' Featurette Promises Chaos

Katie RamirezMar 31, 2017

Devoted to stopping the most risky criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic's advancements in cyber technology. 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.

While in the future she may run for office, the actress says that she doesn't have the time right now.

"I believe having Scarlett play Motoko was the best possible casting for this movie", Oshii said, and some critics agree. She wasn't turned into this soldier because she was about to die; she was about to die because somebody wanted to turn her into a soldier.

Johansson's character Major, who was following up on a lead, ended up being handcuffed to a pole in a small room with Tony and in the ensuing fight punched him in the face, sending him flying. "The unusual disconnect between Johansson's intelligence and her coolly dispassionate looks has been exploited before, most brilliantly in Jonathan Glazer's 'Under the Skin'".

Ghost in the Shell is visually astonishing.

For anyone hoping to revisit the film's cyberpunk landscape and see Johansson take another turn as The Major. you'll likely have to wait a while before learning if the film will receive a sequel or not. The Verge, for example, said the movie is "a solid film built on a broken foundation".

Ghost in the Shell was directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) and is based on the manga graphic novels by Masamune Shirow (Ghost in the Shell, Appleseed).
