With just a few days to go before the highly anticipated release of Ghost in the Shell (in both 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D), some brand spankin’ new footage has emerged along with a featurette that showcases some special effects and the teched out stage props behind the killer cult manga reboot.

Directed by Rupert Sanders and shot on location in Hong Kong and New Zealand, a new 11-minute reel shows the nuts and bolts behind the cult classic’s awesome optics. Watch cyborg vixen Major (Scarlet Johansson) eviscerate a few robotic adversaries and get an intimate behind-the-scenes sense of the cast including Juliette Binoche, Rila FukushimaPilou Asbæk and Michael Pitt. We see Major’s living quarters, her re-charging station, a cool weapons cache, synthetic prostheses and the data feeds that help her triangulate the coordinates of cyber felons around the city. Also watch a wicked-cool rundown from New Zealand’s Weta Workshop (they did the dope special effects and animatronics, including the ghastly cybernetic geishas and innovative ‘thermoptic’ garments). Amazing.
