Scarlett Johansson is back, playing another kick-ass heroine in the live action remake Ghost in the Shell. 

In the film, based on the popular Japanese manga (a.k.a. adult cartoon /comic strip), Johansson shows off her flawless figure, playing The Major, a one-of-a-kind human cyborg … and she absolutely loved it.

 

“I love the character, you kind of have to,” she said with a big grin. “Part of the process of getting into this whole mess of production is, you know, you become emotionally committed to the role, and you empathize with the character’s unique experience … I have a lot of love for The Major.”

And she had a lot of love for her costume as well. The “silicone, wetsuit onesie,” as ScarJo called it, was custom made for her body to give off a semi-nude appearance, so she definitely had to get in shape for the role.

In the Rupert Sanders-directed film, The Major is deployed by the Japanese government’s shadowy Section 9 to fight cyber-terror.

Check out what her co-stars Pilou Asbæk and Chin Han had to say about keeping up with the 32-year-old while filming in the video above.

Ghost in the Shell hits theaters March 31.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
