On Sunday the 5th of February it’s that time of year again over the pond with the biggest game of the season with Super Bowl Sunday. A day of big flashy shows of celebrity appearances and TV spots selling for extortionate sums of money to reach the maximum number of people as possible with audience figures set to reach many millions. So it would only be right for Masamune Shirow‘s live adaptation, Ghost in The Shell to get its very own Big Game Spot.

In the 30 second TV spot, Scarlett Johannson appears in her almost naked to the eye costume as she falls from a tall building, smashes through glass, kicks ass and has half her face peeled away as the narrator states “They did not save your life, they stole it”. The spot is an epically stunning 30 seconds with its immense CGI which puts its phasers on to stun, yet still with no hint of any kind of storyline. Visually it should be a spectacular piece of cinema.

A move from the world of anime to a live-action Hollywood blockbuster is a big step for the 1995 original and only time will tell if fans of the original will take to the Americans messing with their beloved story or even if Snow White and The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders has done the picture the justice it so deserves.

Here’s the Ghost in the Shell Super Bowl TV spot.
