Ghost In The Shell on-set paparazzi pics


Regardless if you've gotten over (or not) actress Scarlett Johansson being cast as the "Major", we have snaps of her on-set while filming for the live action film - courtesy of paparazzi pics via HK01 + Apple Daily (bywayof JoBlo) - whom we see alongside her team mate "Batou" (as played by Danish actor Pilou Asbæk) amidst the street-level denizens of (perhaps) "Ghost City" (?).

Sometimes (but not too often), I'd imagine GITS' streets are the harbinger of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, seen in perpetual "night"…

All above linked URLs lead to my new movie fanblog #ghostintheshellfan dedicated to the live action film, scheduled for a March 31, 2017 premiere (in the U.S.A.).

Featured below is an image for which I'd like to acknowledge as a "Power" picture, featuring a slew of principals of the GITS lore, including (above left-to-right): Rupert Sanders (director for live action film), Scarlett Johansson (playing "Major"/"Kusanagi"), Mamoru Oshii (Creator of GITS), Tricky (musician and starring role in the film?), Kenji Kamiyama (anime direct for most GITS: Stand Alone Complex series), and Kenji Kawai (music composer for 1995 GITS film). Now THIS is a truly "power" pic!
