With the movie facing controversy by casting Scarlett Johansson in the lead role, the first Ghost in the Shell trailer dropped on Sunday morning.

Despite the outcry of casting Johansson in the role of Major Motoko Kusanagi in the live-action version of the iconic anime and manga series—the director has been accused of white-washing the main character—the movie is going forward with its release date next year. Teasers from the film already have been released, but now we get an even bigger sneak preview.

The movie will be released March 31, 2017.
