Worth Watching: Awesome Live-Action Halo 3: ODST Trailer
Instead of featuring a normal trailer for a movie today, I thought I'd feature this amazingly badass trailer that Bungie / Microsoft made for Halo 3: ODST, the latest Halo game out in a few weeks (Amazon). This is exactly why I would love to see a full-on live-action Halo movie. They really should just hire the guy who made this and give him $200 million, a good script, and let him at it. I would love to see 2 hours of the kind of action seen in this. And although I know this is less than two-minutes, it's stories like this that could be the basis for a great screenplay set in the Halo universe. Anyway, if you haven't seen this yet, check it out!
Original video file comes from IGN, but embedded above thanks to MySpace. This trailer was directed by Rupert Sanders, an up-and-coming filmmaker who also directed the awesome Wolverine video game "Captivity" Commercial and landed his first Hollywood gig to direct Leo DiCaprio's The Low Dweller. Now that we know Peter Jackson and specifically Neill Blomkamp are no longer working on the Halo movie, maybe Microsoft will consider giving someone like Rupert the reigns, as he definitely has some incredible filmmaking talent. Come on Microsoft, let Sanders (or someone) make a Halo movie, I'm dying to see it!
