During this past weekend at Wondercon 2012, Sony has premiere the first teaser trailer for the CG animated film Starship Troopers: Invasion and now its available online via IGN. It basically plays like a suit-up scene that shows off the cool hi-tech equipment. The visuals looks amazing. Note the narration is taken directly from the first paragraph of the original novel by writer Robert A. Heinlein.
Director Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed: Ex Machina) brings his great sense for production designs and action direction into the fourth film installment of the military sci-fi franchise. The script is written by Flint Dille (Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay) and produced by Joseph Chou (Halo Legends).
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....
