This summer there will be a fourth Starship Troopers movie, this one will be animated/CGI. The first movie was of course Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 epic movie that satirized the american military while sprinkling it with nudity and gore. The second movie was entirely forgettable while the third tried to emulate Paul Verhoeven with a low-budget but it failed mostly thanks to piss-poor acting, bad CGI and a South-African actress/model who had such a strange husky voice that would pale the entire ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Bane controversy. Though due to the somewhat interesting plot, the gore and the inclusion of Jolene Blalock it was fairly enjoyable.
Now we have the first trailer for the fourth movie right here and although it is unclear whether the core elements of Verhoeven’s Troopers is maintained it certainly is action packed.
Starship Troopers: invasion is set to be released this summer and will have Casper Van Dien as an executive producer.
Here is the official 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….
