Fathom Events and Sony Pictures have released an extended trailer for Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars. So for those of you who have been waiting patiently…it is below along with some images they also released.
The trailer gives us a bit more footage and some more insight into the film’s story, plus a bit of action. Just a note, expect tons of great gruesome goodness as the movie has been given an R rating.
Synopsis: Johnny Rico has just been demoted and sent to a small satellite station on Mars whilst the Federation attacks the bugs’ home planet. While trying to train his new recruits on this remote quiet station, the bugs show up in a surprise attack but the Federation’s Fleet is too far away to help. It’s up to Rico and his Troopers to save the planet and uncover how the bugs made it so close to home.
Ed Neumeier, the creator of the original Starship Troopers film also wrote Traitor of Mars. The film series is, of course, a loose adaptation of Robert Heinlein’s military science fiction novel of the same name.
Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer return as the voices of Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores from the original film. (Looking forward to seeing how they explain that in a film set 20 years after her death.) Comedian DeRay Davis will also lends his voice talents.
Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars will get a limited theater release August 21st, 2017. Tickets will be available through Fathom Events.
