no title

No one knows how to unplug like Scarlett Johansson!

At least that's the case in the trippy first teasers for Ghost in the Shell, the upcoming movie based on the popular manga series about an anti-cybercrime unit.

On Thursday, Dreamworks and Paramount released five brief, visually striking clips featuring the Avengers star as cyborg special-ops agent the Major.

In one clip, ScarJo unplugs from her charging station to start her day; in another, she stumbles upon a ring of people hooked up to what looks like a human-computer hub (no wifi, sadly).

While the actress certainly looks the part, her casting has been a subject of much controversy — many fans feel the Major's Japanese background in the source material (her name is Motoko Kusanagi in the manga) was disregarded due to Hollywood whitewashing.

Ch-ch-check out the teasers (below) and decide if YOU think Johansson is a good choice for the lead role. Ghost in the Shell hits theaters March 31.

Paramount Reportedly Tested Visual Effects To Make Scarlett Johansson Look More Asian In Ghost In The Shell! SERIOUSLY?!

no title

Forget whitewashing, the newest Hollywood trend is apparently white-photoshopping!

Last year, Scarlett Johansson was the subject of casting controversy when it was revealed she would star in the live-action adaptation of the anime classic Ghost in the Shell.

When the first photo of the Captain America: Civil War in the role of Major Motoko Kusanagi (a Japanese woman in the manga and cartoon versions) surfaced on Thursday, critics once again blasted the studio for not choosing a racially appropriate actor for the leading role.

In response to the backlash, Paramount and DreamWorks reportedly tried to fix the ethnicity problem the only way they know how… with CGI!

ScreenCrush reports multiple independent sources close to the production told them the studio hired a visual effects team to run tests that would have changed ScarJo's appearance in post-production to "shift her ethnicity."

Meaning, they allegedly attempted to make their white lead look more Asian in the movie! WTF!?

The tests were conducted by Lola VFX, a visual effects company that aged and de-aged Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Now, the editing wizards are the industry leader in

no title

We've seen Scarlett Johansson as an alien, a superhero, a phone OS, and occasionally even as a woman.

Now she's taking a new form — as a cyborg!

Paramount & Dreamworks finally released the first look at the Captain America: Civil War star in the live action English language adaptation of the anime classic Ghost In The Shell.

For her role as the cybernetically enhanced leader of a cyberterrorism task force, ScarJo has gone to the dark side, with a short ultra-dark blue wig that we are digging!

Despite the actress' worldwide fanbase, her casting has been criticized by many as another example of Hollywood whitewashing — the character she's playing was Japanese in the original manga and subsequent cartoon.

Ghost In The Shell is still in production, and is set to hit theaters March 31, 2017.

What do YOU think of ScarJo's look in the film??

The anime classic tells the story of a woman with a mostly robotic body who fights cyberterrorism on a special military task force.

Sources are now reporting that ScarJo has signed on for the sci-fi thriller.

Seems like a big win for the flick; Lucy already proved that Scarlett can topline an international hit — AND kick butt worldwide!
