The Bugs Are Unleashed in the Japanese Trailer for Starship Troopers: Invasion


I know I’ll end up watching director Shinji Aramaki’s animated sci-fi actioner “Starship Troopers: Invasion” at some point down the road, but it’s not really that high on my list at the moment. Although the flick looks to be nothing more than video game cutscenes edited together to make a feature-length movie, it honestly doesn’t look that bad. Of course, part of my love of the original movie involves Verhoeven’s bizarre sense of humor, which, from the looks of the latest trailer, is nowhere to be found. Then again, for most folks, that might be a good thing.

Have a look at this synopsis:

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.

“Starship Troopers: Invasion” will arrive in Japan on July 21st, 2012. Prospective viewers living in the United States should anticipate a DVD release sometime this summer. If you’d like to know more, have a look at the Japanese trailer below.

    I’m on this! I loved the original film. The sequels were pretty lackluster (okay so i haven’t seen ST3 yet) but the animated show which was actually closer to the book was pretty decent. This looks awesome and the director sold me when I saw “Vexille” so bring on the bugs!!!
