The first full trailer for the manga/anime adaptation of Ghost in the Shell has arrived and it's good news for fans of holographic coy carp. Set to a moody Depeche Mode soundtrack (Basildon synth pop apparently undergoing somewhat of a revival in 2070) it sees Scarlett Johansson as a crime-fighting human-cyborg on a mission to uncover exactly who she is. Johansson's casting was, of course, met with much backlash when announced - many accusing producers of whitewashing a role that is canonically Japanese - and although some will understandably continue to find the trailer disappointing, there's much to be admired in the futuristic visuals created by director Rupert Sanders. Keep your eyes peeled for former i-D cover star Adwoa Aboah too.
