Starship Troopers are ready for the Invasion

Sony Pictures has posted a teaser trailer for its CG-animated Starship Troopers: Invasion movie which is slated to be released on DVD this summer.

The trailer is accompanied by the following brief 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…”

Directed by Japanese filmmaker Shinji Aramaki, of Appleseed & Appleseed: Ex Machina fame, the latest installment of the Starship Troopers franchise is being described as a direct sequel to the original 1997 Starship Troopers film.

The Invasion script is written by Flint Dille (Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay) and produced by Joseph Chou (Halo Legends).
