Looks terrible to me. They ruined the character and the story, the whole theme of the work. Not the least bit interested.

Gotta agree. Looks bad, I mean i'm gonna see it but it looks bad.
Plus I really dislike Scarlett Johansson as a actress the way she looks bugs me I only tolerate here in the CA and Avenger movies.
I think I'll stick to the animated movies and some of anime episodes for something good for Ghost In A Shell.
Honestly trhis trailer seems like its more like the Become Human game except very very veeeeeeeery cliche.
Also if they push the lesbian angle with her as hard as they probably will it's gonna be beyond annoying especially since Shirow himself stated it's pointless and only existed because he didn't want to draw a males ass. showing it the trailer as fanservice and its so better not fuckng be a defining character trait of her.
It'll probably be as bad as Blood The Last Vampire was,

Damn are they going to butcher my favorite story line from the first movie? I hope not and I hope that this movie is not all flash and no substance to it.

"Everyone around me is connected to something, connected to something I'm not."

Well shit sounds like every teenager to me.

Are they going to explore the disparity between man and machine or any of the philosophies of GITS? Or are they content to invoke the imagery for some cheap call backs and fan service for viewers?

Seriously whats the plot? Lucy trying to find out who she is again? Black Widow uncovering a conspiracy within an Organization with some hunk like Captain America?

I haven't seen GITS anime but this trailer looks alright. I'll give it a chance.

You don't even have to the see the series at least watch the first animated movie at least

Also the leotard for when she goes invisible..whut.
Guess the actress didn't want to do a nude scene fine, but a leotard?
They have a 2 diffrent timlines they could follow the original movie or SAC.
Apparently they chose neither.

They chose Kuze's storyline from second gig and modified it combining elements from the first movie; I'm guessing he's also the Puppet Master.

Lame.
I would prefer a straight live adaption from the Oshii films but that would probably suck aswell.
That's what they should have done on Blood.
While there isn't much of anything I like about the Blood franchise The animated The Last Vampire movie was good.

Her appearance so far does seem way more similiar to the first movie.

The special effects look awesome... but I don't really believe in American remakes of foreign films (remaking of films in general), I'm not a fan of anime/manga to live action, and it might have been nice to see some asian casting given that the characters are Japanese.

They actually interviewed japanese people about how they felt about a non asian actress being cast and they all said it was better that way because due to them not choosing a asian actress it was easier to make her look like her anime counterpart.

Generally, I would agree - whitewashing aside, westerners do tend to look more like anime characters than Asians. On the other hand, as far as anime goes, the Major looks more Asian than most, even if the other characters don't so much.
