Mostly what we love about the Super Bowl on TV is the ads, right? Well Scarlett Johansson is giving you one better this Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5, with a custom TV trailer for her graphic-novel movie-adapt, GHOST IN THE SHELL.
The tagline is: “Everything they told her was a lie,” and no small irony she just left her marriage to French actor Roman Dauriac. Maybe it was over their Yummy Pop joint venture of popcorn stores in France, or in further news, the split comes just after working with GHOST director Rupert Sanders, who became notorious for his entanglement with Kristen Stewart on the set of Snow White & The Huntsman. Let’s just say he’s on our Watch List now, ladies.
Luckily ScarJo is a fighter, as she can survive anything in this sci-fi from the future, GHOST IN A SHELL. Here’s an advance look before this spot airs Super Bowl Sunday…
