LOS ANGELES, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Ghost in the Shell released a new teaser starring Scarlett Johansson on Monday.
The preview sees the 31-year-old actress wear The Major's iconic thermoptic suit, which allows her to land a powerful punch while invisible.
Ghost in the Shell is based on the manga of the same name by Japanese artist Masamune Shirow. The series follows a cyborg policewoman, known as "The Major" in the film, as she and her task force fight cyber crime.
Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders is helming the Paramount Pictures adaptation. The movie co-stars Pilou Asbek as Batou, with Michael Pitt as Kuze and Takeshi Kitano as Chief Daisuke Aramaki.
The Ghost in the Shell manga debuted in 1989, and inspired several animated movies and a television series. Fans were curious how The Major's suit would be depicted in the new film, as it makes her appear nude in the 1995 movie.
"We're not actually trying to pretend she's naked," producer Avi Arad told IGN last week. "The suit emulates some of the ideas of the panel lines. When you see it in the movie you're not meant to think that she's naked."
