Meet Section 9 in a new Ghost In the Shell featurette

Today we have a new featurette for the upcoming Paramount Pictures film Ghost In the Shell. In the video, we meet the members of the elite military group called Section 9. They’re tasked with fighting cyber terrorism in a world where most people have some sort of cybernetic enhancement. The film stars Scarlett Johansson, Pilou AsbækJuliette Binoche, Michael Pitt, Takeshi Kitano, Kaori Momoi, Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Yutaka Izumihara, Tuwanda Manyimo and Rila Fukushima and is directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman). Here is the official synopsis:

In the near future, Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others. Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, “The Ghost in the Shell.”

In the video, Johansson, Asbæk and Sanders all talk about this group, as well as who Major and Batou are in relation to Section 9. Are you guys excited for the film?
