Starship Troopers: Invasion Trailer

A trailer has been unveiled for Shinja Aramaki's CG movie based on Starship Troopers.

By the looks of things, Aramaki's movie follows in the footsteps of Paul Verhoeven's 1997 movie in terms of characters and design, rather than referring back to the original novel by Robert Heinlein.

Sony Pictures has set up an official website for the movie and you can follow the blog on tumblr.

The screenplay is by Flint Dille who has a background in writing for video games. Interestingly, despite the Japanese director, the dialogue is all in English and the trailer has Japanese subtitles.

Here's the 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....

The film will be released in Japan in July.
