The live-action remake of Japanese anime classic Ghost in the Shell is rapidly approaching as evident by this, the arrival of the film's second official trailer.

Directed by Rupert Sanders, Ghost in the Shell stars Scarlett Johansson as The Major with a supporting cast that includes Pilou Asbaek, Rila Fukushima, Michael Pitt and Takeshi Kitano. Based on this latest clip, the film looks to explore The Major's past - specifically, the version of events the government has provided and how it starkly contrasts what villain Kuze claims actually happened.

First published in 1989, the Ghost in the Shell franchise now spans multiple media platforms and has served as a strong influence for a number of other hit series such as The Matrix. The latest entry in the franchise is scheduled to hit theaters March 31, 2017.
