Scarlett Johansson nails Major

The first full-length trailer of Scarlett Johansson starring the live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell is out. Though, Ghost in the Shell has been criticised for casting Caucasian actors to play traditionally Asian character but Johansson as Major in this brief appearance looked spot on.

Ghost in the Shell is a science fiction story set in a cyberpunk future, where one can upload their brain into cyberspace and replace their delicate flesh with a prosthetic body. The story follows “Major” Motoko Kusanagi, played by Johansson, a human brain uploaded into a completely artificial shell.

When considering who to cast as an alluring-but-lethal cyborg, it’s hard to think of anybody but Scarlett Johansson.

Johansson has long established herself in the realm of science fiction by playing the inhuman seductress. She has played a stony-faced assassin in The Avengers, a murderous alien in Under The Skin, a disembodied AI in Her, and a superhuman consciousness in Lucy. In all of these films she is essentially playing one role, and that role is the otherworldly femme fatale.

The science fiction film, directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Jonathan Herman and Jamie Moss, based on the Japanese manga of the same name by Masamune Shirow, also stars Pilou Asbæk, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche and Michael Pitt and will be released on March 31, 2017.
