Have a minute to spare? Good, that’s just enough time to watch all five teasers promoting Paramount’s forthcoming live-action adaptation of the legendary manga series, Ghost in the Shell.

Scarlett Johansson plays the Major, a Special Ops cyborg that’s part of Section 9, an elite task force tasked with fighting the baddest of the bad guys. Basically, she’s going to kick ass.

At her side, or against her, is a healthy cast that includes Juliette Binoche, Michael Pitt, Beat Takeshi Kitano, Pilou Asbæk, Kaori Momoi, Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara, and Tuwanda Manyimo.

Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders helmed the picture from an adapted screenplay by Jonathan Herman and Jamie Moss.

More recently, the film’s been marred with controversy for casting a white actor in a non-white role, in addition to the producers’ attempts at using CGI to make the actors appear more Asian.

Having said that, catch the teasers below and the film come March 31st, 2017.
