‘Ghost In The Shell’ is well known as one of the best Manga movies out there, so to say we were sceptical when we first heard about it being made into a live action movie would be an understatement.

The movie is due for release next week though and we’re willing to give it a go, but it seems like the distributors themselves might be kind of worried about it as they’ve taken the unusual step of releasing the first five minutes of the film online. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that happen before?
Anyway, the clip is actually pretty good as we see Major spying on some meeting about cyber enhancement, but it isn’t long until the shit hits the fan and the bullets start flying:
Whoa. Hi-tech Matrix style action, but I suppose that’s a natural fit for this kind of story. Certainly didn’t seem to do the original any harm from that scene, we’ve just gotta hope that the rest of the movie follows suit. Loved that Tron/Trent Reznor & Atticus Black style electronic music in the background too – really setting the scene.
