The first trailer for Rupert Sanders’ (Snow White and the Huntsman) live action adaption of acclaimed anime Ghost in the Shell showed off the movie’s gorgeous visual style and cyber punk aesthetic. Now, a second trailer has come our way that really opens up the story and gives the audience a better sense of what they are in for. Eagle eyed fans will notice this movie follows the beats of the original quite closely (we got a spider tank, people!!!!!) while surging forward with its own spin, adding in elements from the Ghost in the Shell t.v. series, Stand Alone Complex, for good measure. Check it out for yourself below.
Released: March 31st
