This spring brought the first official still of Scarlett Johansson as the lead in the Hollywood live-action adaptation of Masamune Shirow's influential sci-fi series Ghost in the Shell. That was followed by set photos of Johansson and Pilou Asbæk as her right-hand officer Batou in June. Now, without a clear origin, a collection of photos purport to show the duo, along with their other Section 9 cast members similarly in costume.
Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) directs, with the adaptation set to premiere in theaters on March 31, 2017.
