Scarlett Johansson knees Sam Rockwell in the crotch in an office filled with Nazi clones: It sounds like the beginning of the most absurd joke, but it is in fact part of Taika Waititi‘s anti-hate satire Jojo Rabbit. 20th Century Fox has released a new Jojo Rabbit clip which unveils just a little more of this bizarre, heartfelt comedy about a young German boy (Roman Griffin Davis) in Nazi Germany whose imaginary friend is Adolf Hitler.

Before he brings Love and Thunder back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Taika Waititi will be testing the limits of the Disney dominion over 20th Century Fox with his upcoming World War II satire, Jojo Rabbit. The buzzy dark comedy, which Waititi directs and stars in as the imaginary best friend of an awkward young German boy (Roman Griffin) growing up during World War II. But the twist: Waititi’s imaginary friend just happens to be Adolph Hitler. It’s an absurd premise that perhaps only the Thor: Ragnarok and Hunt for the Wilderpeople director could pull off. Watch the new Jojo Rabbit trailer below.

Ghost in the Shell Trailer - Scarlett Johansson

As I’m not familiar with the original Ghost in the Shell manga or anime, I can only watch the trailers for the new film as a detached observer with no real stake. For example, I can note that the first trailer for director Rupert Sanders‘ live-action take starring Scarlett Johansson gives off some serious Blade Runner and RoboCop vibes, mainly because I have no idea whether or not it looks or feels anything like the source material.
