Despite what many on the Internet would prefer, not only is the Ghost in the Shell movie starring Scarlett Johansson happening, but also there’s a trailer on the way. In this blink-and-you’ll-miss-it clip, we get a glimpse at some of the film’s effects, style, and, of course, controversial lead actress.

As you’ll remember a few months ago, the casting of Scarlett Johansson set off a bit of wild fire in the online community with claims that Ghost in the Shell was guilty of whitewashing. It’s hard to discount those claims when, yet again, an Asian role was given to a white actress, a bit of a tradition in Hollywood movies. The film’s producer came out and defended the film’s “international story,” but with this being such a common occurrence in Hollywood, it’s hard to ignore the problem.

Anyway, enjoy the teaser, if you can! The full trailer drops on November 13.

While Godzilla vs. the Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz sounds like the shortest and most boring Godzilla movie ever, one passionate group of Godzilla fans want to even the score. 

This team put together a huge tribute to the fire-breathing lizard known mostly for leveling Japanese cities and expressing post-World War II nuclear anxiety. Built from rice straw by over 150 volunteers, straw Godzilla doesn’t serve as the metaphor for nuclear destruction that its inspiration does, but it is really cool and took about four months to complete. It even has LED eyes, which makes it scary but not as scary as a giant lizard knocking over buildings and reminding us all of the awesome power of nuclear weapons.

Anywho, this Godzilla could totally take the Scarecrow, who serves more as a metaphor for the 19th century American farm worker than nuclear technology. Straw Godzilla just has a major height advantage — plus those cool LED eyes!

2. Hunger Games IRL at the Olympics

During the men's marathon on Sunday, Ethiopian long-distance runner Feyisa Lilesa pulled a Hunger Games moment and showed his support for the Oromo Protests in his home country by making a specific motion with his arms:



Showing the sign is highly political though, so when he spoke a press conference after the marathon he said what he risked with the gesture, "If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me," he said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

"If I am not killed maybe they will put me in prison. [If ] they [do] not put me in prison they will block me at airport. I have got a decision. Maybe I move to another country."

Like the Hunger Games, let's hope the people can rise above this oppression.
