Sony Pictures has unveiled a teaser trailer for the CG-animated "Starship Troopers: Invasion" movie, produced by "Starship Troopers" star Casper Van Dien. Check it out below.
Plot: The story centers around two teams of Roughnecks: the Alpha 1 team embarking on a mission to rescue 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 Shinji Aramaki (Halo Legends, Appleseed) and is expected to be released on DVD this summer.
@matt - Starship Troopers III was as good as RoboCop III.

I'm sorry, but I didn't see anything whatsoever that said Starship Troopers. I seriously thought I was watching a game trailer for Halo or Mass Effect. Don't get me wrong, the CGI looks impressive for what it is, but there was virtually nothing that harkened back to the original ST film, the one everyone seems to like, so, no, not a good trailer to get people interested imo.
I kind of have a feeling they are keeping this CGI series going to capitalize off the reboot if and when it comes (It will require a huge budget and marketing campaign if it does) It will be like how you see all the Batman cartoon movies advertised around BB, TDK,or a TDKR release.
Also I have a feeling the reboot will happen since Hollywood operates in twos, and Ridley Scott has been developing The (Superior)Forever War and Starship Troopers is its military Science Fiction counterpart. Hope it happens, both books are good, but I still think theyd be better suited as an HBO miniseries.
