Here Are Your First 5 Looks At “Ghost In The Shell”

Last night, during the season finale of Mr Robot, Paramount gave fans not one but FIVE quick looks at their upcoming sci-fi feature, “Ghost in the Shell.”  We get a look at few looks at Scarlett Johansson as Major Motoko and each tease leaves us asking a ton of questions.  Here they are, in order:

Cyborg policewoman The Major (Scarlett Johansson), and her task force Section 9 thwart cyber criminals and hackers. Now, they must face a new enemy who will stop at nothing to sabotage Hanka Robotic’s Artificial Intelligence technology.

Love it or hate it, Paramount’sGhost In The Shell” makes its way to theaters on March 31, 2017.  Let us know your thoughts down below in the comments section.  (Yes, we know that Scarlett’s role should have gone to another actress that was closer to the original Japanese manga story by Masamune Shirow.  Other than THAT point, what do you think?)

100% Soft’s “Mass Hysteria 2” Exhibit At Gallery 1988 Will Empty Your Wallet

When someone lists “pizza” as one of their influences in their bio, we had an instant connection with this kindred spirit but when their art is this awesome, we develop an equally powerful, instant admiration.  Such is the case with the artist Truck Torrence, or as many know him, 100% Soft.

100% Soft has just had his second solo show at Gallery 1988 and much like its predecessor, it is utterly fantastic.  Called “Mass Hysteria 2” the show features 100% Soft’s signature, and instantly recognizable, take on pop culture including: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Willy Wonka, The Walking Dead, Pulp Fiction and many more.
