Starship Troopers Animated Sequel Trailer

Sure, Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars is only getting a one-night theatrical engagement, but that doesn't stop Sony from releasing a trailer for the animated sequel to the cult classic film...and it actually looks pretty badass.

The film, which stars Casper Van Dien, DeRay Davis, and Dina Meyer is actually the fifth installment of the Starship Troopers film franchise, and a sequel to the 2012 film Starship Troopers: Invasion.

According to THR, "The movie sees Rico demoted and relocated to a satellite station on Mars, while the Federation moves to attack the home planet of the bugs — but Mars just so happens to be the target of a secret bug attack at the same time, and it falls to Rico and a group of new recruits to keep the planet safe while the Federation's fleet is far out of reach."

Traitor of Mars screenings will take place in select theaters on Monday, August 21, with screenings at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. local time in each location.

Besides the film itself, the theatrical equivalent of Blu-ray bonus features will screen alongside Traitor of Mars; per THR, Neumeier and Van Dien will introduce the movie, which will be followed up by interviews with the filmmakers and behind-the-scenes footage.


You can get tickets online via Fathom Events starting on June 19, and you can check out the official synopsis below.

C'mon You Apes, You Wanna Live Forever?! I have only one rule. Everybody fights, no one quits. The bugs have breached Mars and the Federation's Fleet is too far to help.
