A behind-the-scenes set video has dropped for Ghost in the Shell, the upcoming manga adaptation starring Scarlett Johansson.

The video comes thanks to Entertainment Tonight, so expect the oh-so-into-it journo and somewhat forced interview that can come with the entertainment news show.

“I think, more than anything, I want my daughter to feel comfortable taking risks,” Johansson says when asked about the variety of ass-kicking female characters she’s brought to the screen.

But pushing aside the fluffy exchange between the reporter and actress, there are some interesting behind-the-scenes shots that could be of interest. The footage shows off on-set action from the New Zealand shoot, providing a glimpse of a sequence involving shoot-outs and a flipping car. Watch the video below.

Ghost in the Shell, also starring Pilou Asbæk, Michael Pitt, Juliette Binoche, Kaori Momoi, Rila Fukushima, Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara, and Tuwanda Manyimo, arrives in Australia on March 30 and hits the US on March 31.
