She plays a woman with a 'human brain and synthetic robot body.'
But's cyber-enhanced soldier physique leaves little to the imagination in a teaser of her upcoming sci-fi film Ghost In The Shell.
The 32-year-old actress showcases her svelte physique in a nude bodysuit for her titular role as Major, all while fighting off the world's most dangerous criminals.
The futuristic crime drama released the first five minutes of the highly-anticipated flick on Thursday.

The clip opens with Major (Scarlett) overlooking Section 9 of a metropolitan city which is currently on lockdown due to 'possible cyber crime activity in proceeding.'
Her all black wardrobe includes several thigh high slits which flash glimpses of her slender pins.
She shows off a short, dark black hairstyle as she stands atop of a building and glances down at the bustling city below and says to her awaiting team, 'This is Major, I'm on site.'
The short video cuts to a scene where a doctor working for Hanka Robotics - played by actor Michael Wincott - pitches their artificial intelligence technology.
'What is it you want from us?' he is asked.
'I think it's more about what Hanka Robotics can do for you. 73 percent of this world has woken up to the world of cyber enhancement. Really want to be left behind?' the doctor replies.
'My people embrace cyber enhancement as do I, but no one really understands the risk to individuality, identity, messing with the human soul.'
As the two men engage in the private meeting, Major scans the building through x-ray goggles and finds them, reporting back to her team: 'Someone the president staff, someone's watching him.'
An elevator full of men carrying briefcases with guns packed inside suddenly exit an elevator onto the floor of the hotel where the conference is taking place with the doctor.
Robots dressed as geisha abruptly overtake the doctor while they inject wires into his neck and leave him motionless.
The armed men rush into the room with guns blazing and begin shooting everyone in the den.
As Major looks on from her goggles, she has no time to wait for backup and springs into action.
She quickly removes her coat to reveal a nude robot-like bodysuit with a small handgun holstered to her upper thigh.
She jumps off the side of a building where she has been on the lookout and vanishes into thin air, before crashing into a window where the doctor is being ambushed.
Major finds a geisha in the corner of the room holding the doctor hostage and shoots her down, while the robot begins crying, 'Help me please, don't let me die.'
'Who sent you? Answer me!' Major shouts back.
'Collaborate with Hanka Robostics and be destroyed,' the robot replies as its face bursts open before Major shoots it one last time.
The Avengers actress stars in the film alongside Takeshi Kitano, Michael Pitt and Juliette Binoche.
The flick is based the Japanese manga of the same name by Masamune Shirow, and previously became an animated film in Japan in 1995.
Her casting in an Asian role initially received some backlash, however the film's producer Steven Paul was quick to defend the actress.
He told : 'I don't think it was just a Japanese story. Ghost in the Shell was a very international story, and it wasn't just focused on Japanese; it was supposed to be an entire world.'
'That's why I say the international approach is, I think, the right approach to it,' he continued.
Drawing on his 'international' inspiration, he added: 'We're utilizing people from all over the world. There's Japanese in it. There's Chinese in it. There's English in it. There's Americans in it.'
Scarlett herself then justified these objections in an interview with Event magazine, noting that her character is completely neutral - making her own ethnicity irrelevant.
She said: 'Their question is answered in the film. I'm playing a person that is completely identity-less. She is a human brain in a synthetic robot body.'
