With a little over a month to go before the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie hits theaters, a new trailer is here, and it reveals a lot.

After the mostly visual first trailer, here we get a good sense of the story, the fact this version will dive deeper into The Major’s past and get to meet Kuze, the villain of the film. Check it out.

Of course, the film is based on the iconic Japanese franchise created by Masamune Shirow. In this futuristic world, the human essence, also known as a ghost, can be transferred to different cyborg bodies, called shells. Scarlett Johansson is the Major, a highly-trained cyborg who has to get to the bottom of a conspiracy plot.

Directed by Rupert Sanders, Ghost in the Shell stars Scarlett Johansson, Michael Pitt, Takeshi Kitano, and Juliette Binoche. It opens March 31.
