    that's a pretty big twist.
    when the guy says "they did not save your life they stole it."
    then again that's what you would expect to hear a bad guy say, to try and mess with her head.
    I was never under impression that motoko was in s9 out of anything but her own choosing.
    In fact aramaki says to motoko at end of sac that s9 will continue as long as both he and her wish to continue on with it. But this isn't based on SAC right.

    I hope they touch on the importance of memory in the series. how memory is what defines us.
    scarlet johanson has played many rolls that touch on memory in the past as well.

    first of all, i like the visual language that is presented here!

    ...but:

    did they really switch the majors existential crisis for memory loss?
    do they imply, that Batou gets his eyes in the process of the movie, not in the past as a 'ranger mod' ?

    Also the shelling sequence: http://www.ign.com/videos/2016/11/13/ghost-in-the-shell-2017-shelling-sequence

    Just as weird and uncomfortable as I remember it.

    a few times she ponders exiting her shell, when she's underwater for so long.

    Indentured Servitude is a focused theme from the first episode of Arise, and it's prevalent in the rest of the franchise. The original Mamoru Oshii movies has Motoko mention that they bodies they use is pretty much owned by the governments, and similar comments are made in the manga. This is nothing new for the franchise.

    What IS new, however, is showing Batou without his prosthetic eyes. We're clearly going to see him get upgraded, but we don't know the reason why yet.

    That was the Laughing Man / Kuze at the end of the trailer there. They combined both characters to be the same in this movie, and that's actually OK since they're not following any one iteration of the franchise.

    I just really hope they have a think tank in this movie.

    My biggest gripe is Scar Jo's voice as The Major. She sounds way too timid and uncertain, even in the classic rooftop dive scene. The Major always seemed confident and professional, and I think they're plugging the "tortured past" idea maybe a bit much.

    There will not be any Tachikomas/Fuchikomas/Uchikomas/Logicomas or other think tanks employed by Section 9 in the movie. the creators said it would detract from the story they're trying to focus on.

    Buuuuuut, they also said there will be a tank...

    Yeah its the tank from the end of GITS 1995. The one the Major rips her arm off trying to open the hatch.

    2 things I like from this trailer.

    1) The music, which has nothing to do with anything.... :(
    2) It looks like (outside of the eyes) they may have nailed Batou

    I find this scene disturbingly fascinating.

    Would have love them to use the same voice as the one in the game. I don't have anything against Scar'Jo' voice, but... yeah, as you said, way too timid.

    Finally got around to watch it. It's not that it has won me over, but it looks like it can turn out to be a good movie. I'm no longer pessimistic. Not a fan of the scene that looks like a ripoff of Matrix, but I guess it's not out of place.

    I finally saw the original 1995 movie. That fight scene in the pond is directly taken from there.
