Here’s what you need to know about Scarlett Johansson‘s Major: you’ll never see her coming.
A standout scene from the Ghost in the Shell trailers is Johansson’s water fight as the half-cyborg soldier. Now fans can watch how the sequence plays out in a clip from the film, released online by Paramount.
In the film, Major is a cyber-enhanced human, who suffered a near-fatal crash and was brought back to life through advanced technology. Now as the perfect super-soldier, one of her tricks is invisibility, which she uses to get the drop on a target — even as he’s surrounded by water. In other scenes, glimpsed in previous footage, we see her flaunting the ability as she intervenes during an attack from robotic geishas.
An agent for Section 9, Major helps hunt down the world’s most dangerous terrorists. But she soon learns she may be playing for the wrong side. The people who brought her back did not actually save her life, but stole it for their own nefarious purposes. Now it’s her mission to reclaim her past and prevent it from happening again.
Ghost in the Shell, directed by Rupert Sanders, also stars Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, and Michael Pitt. The film will open in theaters on March 31.
