The first major public event for the new live action Ghost In The Shell took place several weeks ago in Tokyo, and has been posted online by a number of folks; the one used here is from Germany’s Movie Maniacs team. This was the event where they released the first full trailer, and also did some interview time with actor/filmmaker Beat Takeshi (Takeshi Kitano) and actress Scarlett Johansson, both of whom were named. Also on stage for the interview was director Rupert Sanders, only named Rupert in the video segment, with actor/interviewer Chris Peppler of NHK fame doing the Master of Ceremonies job and asking all the questions. They start the video off with the musical segment that accompanies the Shelling of the Ghost footage led and directed by composer and musician Kenji Kawai, who they also never named. I figured it was appropriate for me to name everyone correctly here.
