The trailer for Ghost In The Shell dropped over the weekend, and it’s got people talking. People seem to be digging how the film is adapting the visuals of the original anime film into live-action form. 

During a press event in Japan, IGN managed to grab some footage that demonstrates how far director Rupert Sanders is going to recreate the iconic imagery from the 1995 version of Ghost In The Shell. The opening sequence, in essence, recreates the first few minutes of the original in fantastic detail. 

Check out the NSFW version of the clip right here, courtesy of IGN, which shows The Major’s (Scarlett Johansson) shelling sequence:

Fun Fact: The music you hear in this faithful recreation is actually the original composer Kenji Kawai performing a new composition live on drums!

If you’d like to re-watch the original, in order to compare, here it is:

That’s pretty nifty, eh?

Ghost In The Shell comes out on March 31.
