Ghost in the Shell — This live-action remake of Mamoru Oshii’s legendary anime stars Scarlett Johannson as Major, a human who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. In the near future, with terrorism reaching a new level with “mind-jacking” — the ability to remote control another person’s thoughts and actions — Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. But when she discovers that her life was stolen instead of saved, Major will stop at nothing to recover her past while punishing those responsible.
