They did not save your life. They stole it.

Paramount Pictures released a new teaser for is upcoming adaptation of Ghost in the Shell, showing off an android Scarlett Johansson as she fighting her way through a cyberpunk Tokyo.

This new trailer shares some of the same footage from the film’s first trailer, but comes with an intriguing voiceover: “They did not save your life. They stole it.”

Johansson plays The Major, a robotic soldier with a human mind who is part of a task force known as Section 9, which works to combat cyber criminals and hackers, and come up against an enemy working to sabotage Hanka Robotics. Along the way, The Major learns some troubling things about her past.

While the film has attracted considerable controversy over Johansson’s casting, the trailers and this new spot seem to have alleviated some concerns about the film’s look and feel. We don’t have much longer to wait and see: Ghost in the Shell hits theaters on March 31st, 2017.
