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.

A man created this creepy, lifelike Scarlett Johansson robot with some ingenuity and a 3D printer.  Actually, he didn't explicity create a ScarJobot, he based the likeness off a Hollywood celebrity who he does not want to name. But we can make a pretty good guess....



So the likeness is...weird but it seems like the creator, Ricky Ma, is a true robot enthusiast. He says he really just wanted to build a robot and it took a long time (and $50,000) to acquire the parts and skills to come this far. He told the Daily Mirror:

When I started building it, I realised it would involve dynamics, electromechanics and programming. I have never studied programming, how was I supposed to code?

Additionally, I needed to build 3D models for all the parts inside the robot. Also, I had to make sure the robot's external skin and its internal parts could fit together. When you look at everything together, it was really difficult.

This new adaptation of 'The Jungle Book' looks a lot darker than the animated version of 1967. The important question is, will it still be a musical? So far, the public has been promised some singing. It looks like the striking CGI and A-list cast of voices will just have to make up for any songs that get left out.

You'll want to sin after hearing Scarlett Johansson's sexy version of the Holy Bible.

Joining SNL writer and cast member Mike O'Brien on Tasty Radio, ScarJo offers up a titillating rendition of Deuteronomy that will make any Bible believer blush.

Slavery, forced marriage, stoning, cutting people's hands off— the Old Testament never sounded so hot!

Lord, forgive us.

SodaStream's new commercial featuring Scarlett Johansson has been pulled from the Super Bowl by Fox. The reason behind the banning is not that the video is too steamy or risque. It's because the video takes a shot at Coke and Pepsi, two of Fox's and the Super Bowl's biggest advertisers.

It's easy to peg The Avengers as a fringe movie as it's based on a comic book and is helmed by Joss Whedon, a name that is synonymous with indoor kids and people who love to mix musical numbers with their vampire slayers. Well, the nerd dog days are over as The Avengers was been welcomed in other countries and earned a pretty penny: $178.4 million, to be exact. It also has the prestige of having the biggest opening weekend in 12 regions. While the movie won't open stateside until May 4th, America is already preparing to make Whedon its new movie overlord.
