Ghost in the Shell Honest Trailer jacks into what’s wrong with the movie

ScreenJunkies is at it again with their hilarious Honest Trailer for Ghost in the Shell.

As they put it so eloquently: “Hollywood is running out of stuff from the '80s and '90s to remake, so now they're remaking a film they've already been ripping off for decades, but with controversial casting, a dumbed down plot, and a complete lack of understanding of what made the franchise popular to begin with.”

Which … you gotta admit, they have a point. They also pretty much hit it on the head that Scarlett Johansson is effectively playing many of her previous movie roles all rolled into one for the Rupert Sanders-directed movie. Also: boobs (you’ll know what I mean when you see the video).

Look, I saw the film and I didn’t totally hate it, but it could have been so much better, too. Oh well, as they say, better leave live-action adaptations of Japanese mangas to the Japanese. Or maybe not, if we get hilarity like this out of it. Check out the Honest Trailer below, and chime in with your thoughts:
