Ghost in the Shell, the blockbuster adaptation of the seminal cyberpunk manga, hits theaters on Friday. While Scarlett Johansson’s casting has been a huge source of controversy, critics are praising the film’s slick visuals. Paramount, the studio behind the production, has been sharing a steady stream of trailers, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and full clips from the movie to help get people excited to see the Major in action.
Well, they’ve released so many clips and full scenes, that you can watch more than 13 minutes of the movie right now from the comfort of your own computer.
The first scene, known as the “shelling scene,” is one of the few parts of the new movie that’s almost a shot-for-shot recreation of the 1995 animated film. In it, we see the Major’s cyborg body being created — it’s very Westworld-esque. Video of this scene, which will presumably be the first scene of the 2017 movie too, came out in November of last year.
The next scene, assuming we have the timeline right, is the Major waking up in her new robot body for the first time. Playstation shared a lengthy, 9-minute clip of the movie that starts with a little bit of existential body horror and then transitions to the thrilling tower jump and robot-geisha fight scene that Paramount shared last week. Playstation’s version, though, is longer than that original upload. In addition to featuring the Major’s traumatic awakening, it also shows what happens after she fires on the last geisha, rather than cutting away as she fires.
Another scene shows what happens when the Major uses her ghost-like cyber-consciousness to do a deep data dive in order to look for clues. The perils of the ‘net make her IRL dive off a building look like nothing.
Finally, there’s the pretty sick water fight scene that’s been a highlight of pretty much every trailer. It’s unclear where exactly this fits into the film’s chronology, but the Major’s invisible ass-kicking is worth a watch.
There are lots of other bits and pieces of the movie scattered throughout various TV teasers and theatrical trailers, but until Friday, this uninterrupted clips, totaling almost 15 minutes, will have to do. Watch ‘em all if you don’t mind having already seen 8 percent of the 106-minute-long film.
Ghost in the Shell hits theaters on March 31, 2017.
