For anyone who is eager to see more footage from the new live-action Ghost in the Shell adaptation, the wait is almost over. This Sunday, the first full trailer for the film will be unveiled at an event in Tokyo. And as a taste of what’s to come, we’ve gotten our first glimpse of Scarlett Johansson‘s character using her cyborg abilities and an enhanced suit to become almost completely invisible!

Fans of the original Ghost in the Shell may recognize that the Major (Johansson) is wearing the thermoptic suit, and it’s definitely a lot easier for her to take down her enemies when they can’t see her coming. That suit was key to several of the iconic moments in the anime adaptation, and we’re expecting that to be true for the feature film as well. The 13-second clip also gives us a brief look at the suit when the Major isn’t trying to hide her presence. Hopefully, we’ll see a lot of more of Johansson kicking ass in the next round of footage, as well as a larger peak at the story.
Johannson will be in Tokyo for the trailer reveal alongside her co-star Takeshi Kitano and director Ruper Sanders. But that’s not the only place you can find Johansson this Sunday. She’ll also be joining us on our @Nerdist Twitter account for a special Q&A session!
