Scarlett Johansson is ready to show you what she’s made of… literally.

A new Ghost in the Shell TV spot will debut during Super Bowl 51 this weekend, and Paramount is giving fans a look before Sunday’s big game.

The footage, though mostly recycled, is pure hallucinatory sci-fi: the hologram koi fish encircling a building, ScarJo’s glass-shattering entrance, and the animatronic geisha blur the reality of the Major (Johansson), a human-cyborg hybrid and special ops agent devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals for the elite task force known as Section 9. While she thinks she’s been given a new purpose, we’re reminded of that familiar line, “They did not save your life, they stole it.”

Rupert Sanders directs Ghost in the Shell, based on the popular Japanese manga and anime. Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, Michael Pitt, and Rila Fukushima also star.

The spot will air during the Super Bowl this Sunday, Feb. 5, along with ads for Nintendo Switch, Buick, Budweiser, and many more.
