“Ghost in the Shell” Gets Oshii’s Blessing

A new video featurette shot on the set of Rupert Sanders’ live-action “Ghost in the Shell” is out and showcases not just brand-new behind-the-scenes and B-roll footge, but also includes comments from Mamoru Oshii, the director of the “Ghost in the Shell” anime films.

Oshii endorses the new film and Scarlett Johansson’s work as the cyborg The Major in the film. The first trailer for the movie is scheduled to go online on Sunday with the film itself opening in March.
