Starship Troopers: Invasion trailerAugust 12, 2012
For some reason this gem of a trailer slipped by me. The fourth feature film instalment of the Starship Troopers franchise is somewhat surprisingly a CGI movie. From the trailer it looks to be better than the two previous live action films. Then again, I just might be in a gratuitous scifi marine carnage state of mind – I usually am.
Judging from the trailer, SST:I looks to be the movie that the massively disappointing Ultramarines should’ve been. It probably won’t win awards for script, but such minor details can be overlooked, provided the film packs enough trooper on Arachnid action. In case you’re interested, the synopsis reads:
A distant Federation outpost Fort Casey comes under attack by bugs. The team on the fast attack ship Alesia is assigned to help the Starship John A. Warden stationed in Fort Casey evacuate along with the survivors and bring military intelligence safely back to Earth. Carl Jenkins, now ministry of Paranormal Warfare, takes the starship on a clandestine mission before its rendezvous with the Alesia and goes missing in the nebula. Now, the battle-hardened troopers are charged with a rescue mission that may lead to a much more sinister consequence than they ever could have imagined….
