Scarlett Johansson isn’t even in her mid-thirties and she’s already put together a huge resume of quality dramatic, action, and vocal work.

The second full trailer for next month’s Ghost in the Shell is out, and-as someone who has little to no history with the anime series it’s based on-I feel like it’s intriguing and visually stunning. I also feel like this trailer is one of those that makes you feel like I have already seen the entire movie.
