Back in April we saw the first image of Scarlett Johansson from Paramount Pictures’ live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga Ghost in the Shell.
Now Paramount is doing something a little different. They haven’t released the first teaser trailer, or a quick teaser video to promote the release of the first trailer as we see so often these days. Instead, they’ve released five brief teaser videos, each with a few moments of footage.
You can read more about the movie and watch all five of the videos below.
Here’s a description of Ghost in the Shell, including additional cast members and who they are playing in the movie:
