First Trailer For STARSHIP TROOPERS: TRAITOR OF MARS Animated Film!
Earlier this week we learned there was a CG animated Starship Troopers sequel in development called Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars. Original Starship Troopers stars Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer will reprise their roles of Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores. Now today we have the first teaser trailer to share with you!
The movie was written by Ed Neumeier, who wrote the original Paul Verhoeven-directed film as well as Robocop. Here's the story that the film will follow:
The movie sees Rico demoted and relocated to a satellite station on Mars, while the Federation moves to attack the home planet of the bugs — but Mars just so happens to be the target of a secret bug attack at the same time, and it falls to Rico and a group of new recruits to keep the planet safe while the Federation's fleet is far out of reach.
The trailer came with the following note:
C’mon You Apes, You Wanna Live Forever?! I have only one rule. Everybody fights, no one quits. The bugs have breached Mars and the Federation’s Fleet is too far to help. It’s up to us to save the planet. On the bounce, Troopers! The only Good Bug is a Dead Bug! Oorah!
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions and Fathom Events are partnering for the one-night-only theatrical debut. Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars theater screenings will take place in nearly 500 select theaters across the country on Monday, August 21st. There will be two screenings at 7:30pm and 10pm. It will eventually be released on Blu-ray.
Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think! I'm looking forward to checking this film out!
