Okay, I’m gonna admit it. The trailer for Ghost In The Shell looks pretty amazing and Scarlett Johansson looks kickass. Sure, the whitewashing hella bothers me. I mean if you’re going to change the race of the main character why not change the setting as well? Clearly, it’s set in Japan circa 2029 and unless there’s a third world war where all the white people invade Japan it’s all a little misleading.
Okay, now that the trailer high has ebbed a little, all I can see it the whitewashing. The only Japenese people in the movie are extras.
Also, what the hell is up with ScarJo’s costume? Is she naked? Is that a beige onesie? What is happening with that outfit? I need an answer and I want it now, dammit!
Seriously, what is that? Too bad Scarlett Johansson can’t spend the whole movie naked on an operating slab. I could watch that for a couple hours without complaint. Sure, it would probably drag on after a while, but I’ve been known to find entertainment watching paint dry.*
It’s been a while since I’ve seen the original animated Ghost in the Shell and I never read the mangas, so the story is a little foggy in my head, so I can’t tell you how faithfull it is to the original, you know, besides the whole changing the race of the main character, WHICH IS A BIG DEAL, but this is android ScarJo boobies, so it was my duty as a fellow perv to post this trailer.
Check out the trailer:
*It changes color, it’s fascinating!
