Watch the epic new trailer for Ghost In The Shell

A brand new trailer for the big-budget remake of Ghost In The Shell, which stars Scarlett Johansson, has been unveiled and you can see it below. 

Starring alongside Johansson are Boardwalk Empire's Michael Pitt, Chocolat's Juliette Binoche, Borgen's Pilou Asbæk and Battle Royale's Takeshi Kitano. 

The movie has been directed by Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders with a script from Jonathan Herman and Jamie Moss. 

Ghost In The Shell follows Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9 devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists. 

The comic on which the movie is based has previously been adapted by director Mamoru Oshii in 1995 for an anime film, which spawned a sequel in 2004 named Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence. 

The new trailer offers up a first look at Pitt's character Kuze, the movie's key villain, who is hellbent on bringing down the artificial technology that powers The Major and those like her. 

The movie will be released into UK cinemas on March 31st in 2017. You can check out the original and its sequel here in hmv's online store.
