Live-Action "Ghost in the Shell" Sighting in Hong Kong Reveals Batou & More of the Major

Street snaps and video show Pilou Asbæk and Scarlett Johannson in their roles

Back in April we got our first look at Scarlett Johansson as the Major in director Rupert Sanders' live-action Ghost in the Shell adaptation, but we haven't seen much else since. That changed this week thanks to some street snaps taken on location in Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, showing some at least partially-costumed shots of Johansson, as well as Pilou Asbæk as Batou.

 

 

Here's a really quick video of filming from HK01, which also has more street pics here:

 

Whether you're for or against the main casting decision here, which has been a source of controversy from the very beginning, we'll see how it turns out when Ghost in the Shell premieres next March.
