IMAX First Look Fan Event Set for Live-Action ‘Ghost In The Shell’

One-night-only event featuring an exclusive first look at film footage to be held across 14 North American cities on February 28th.

In anticipation of the upcoming live-action feature, Ghost In The Shell, Paramount Pictures, Dreamworks Pictures and IMAX have teamed up to present a one-night-only event featuring an exclusive first look at stunning film footage exclusively in IMAX theatres across 14 North American cities with select international markets and dates to follow.

Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, “Ghost in the Shell,” the movie takes place in the near future, where Major (played by Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others.

In case you missed it, here’s the latest trailer from the film, a two-minute teaser that delves into  The Major and her mysterious origins:

And here’s the first trailer, first unveiled back in November, which showcases the film’s glorious universe:

Attendees of the IMAX event will receive a limited edition poster and have the opportunity to capture their experience in a film-centric experiential photo booth entitled “Becoming the Major.” IMAX theatres in Los Angeles and New York will also feature a special behind-the-scenes look at the costumes and props from the film.
