See a Second Cool Trailer for Animated 'Starship Troopers: Invasion'
Back in March we featured a teaser trailer for Starship Troopers: Invasion, the new CG animated movie that Sony is making, and will likely end up going straight-to-DVD. Of course, Starship Troopers holds a special place in our heart, so we just like putting this one out there for fans to soak up if they're so inclined. Now we have a longer look at the new animated film, and while it doesn't look all that impressive on the character details, the action looks to be fairly well intact, even if it feels more like unfinished video game cinematics than a full animated film. There still might be some cool stuff to see in this flick though. Watch!
Here's the new trailer for Shinji Aramaki's Starship Troopers: Invasion via Bleeding Cool:
The story centers around two teams of Roughnecks: the Alpha 1 team embarking on a mission to rescue the distant outpost Fort Casey and the K-12 team already stationed at Fort Casey. The two war-depleted squads must band together with a common objective, but personalities and ambition ensure a bumpy ride.
Starship Troopers: Invasion is directed by Japanese filmmaker Shinji Aramaki, of Appleseed & Appleseed: Ex Machina, as well as a Halo Legends segment previously. The script is by Flint Dille (Dragonstrike), obviously based on Robert A. Heinlein's novel, and this version is supposed to be more of a sequel to the original 1997 Starship Troopers movie than any of its crappy sequels. We don't have much release info yet, but it is expected to go straight-to-DVD sometime this year. For updates, follow the film's production blog.
