Wow, Mr. Robot season 2 just ended and not only was I blessed with an amazing season finale, but during the commercial breaks it seemed like my TV was being hacked.
Little did I know, piece by piece we were being shown glimpses of Scarlett Johansson’s Ghost In The Shell movie, set to debut in March.
For those of you that know me, you know exactly how much I love Scarlett Johansson, but also how much I love the movie Lucy.
Not only is Ghost In The Shell the movie Lucy on steroids, but it is the original concept that legendary movies such as The Matrix came from.
Watch every single Scarlett Johansson Ghost In The Shell teaser below:
When this first came on after hacking my television screen, I was like “what the fuck is that”?
While my mind was also streaming towards “okay but I want to see more. . .”
Then this dropped. . .
and again I was like. . . “what is this part of Mr. Robot”?
When suddenly I realized “holy fuck, this is Ghost In The Shell and that was Major Motoko.”
Now yeah, I know where many of you about to go with this. . .
“White-washing, Hollywood back at it again”.
Yes white-washing is an issue, and yes there could have been better casting such as Sense 8’s Doona Bae.
But wait until you see the rest of these. . .
Now this one is where I got off my couch and started screaming like a maniac. . .
Not only because the beauty of Scarlett Johansson is on the screen ( of course), but the weirdness of it ( I mean the trailer ) is oh so arousing for some reason. . .
What’s that? Is there an asian man in there? ( hopefully the asians aren’t all the bad guys )
And this, this is where I completely lost it! White-washing this, white-washing that, this movie looks beyond phenomenal from the small portions we have seen so far.
So yes, this movie was white-washed, but if you can get past that, you cannot tell me this doesn’t catch your interest!
Ghost In The Shell releases March 31, 2017
Oh by the way, you can’t complain about this casting and not mention the ridiculous casting of Doctor Strange.
( which also looks amazing by the way )
