Last month we saw a teaser trailer for Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars, an upcoming animated movie set in the cinematic universe which began with Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 cult classic, Starship Troopers.
Also related to the ’97 original is some of the cast and crew. Both Casper Van Dien as Johnny Rico and Dina Meyer as Dizzy Flores return for Traitor of Mars, and the screenplay was written by Ed Neumeier (RoboCop), who wrote the original and all the sequels, and also directed the third entry, Starship Troopers 3: Marauder. The cast also includes DeRay Davis (21 Jump Street, G.I. Joe: Retaliation).
Now an official trailer has been released online. You can read more about the movie and check out the new trailer below.
Câ€™mon You Apes, You Wanna Live Forever?! I have only one rule. Everybody fights, no one quits. The bugs have breached Mars and the Federationâ€™s Fleet is too far to help. Itâ€™s up to us to save the planet. On the bounce, Troopers! The only Good Bug is a Dead Bug! Oorah!
Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer return as the voices of Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores alongside Comedian & Starship Troopers Super Fan DeRay Davis in an all-new military adventure from the writer of Starship Troopers and Robocop, Ed Neumeier.
Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars will be released in theaters on August 21st, but it comes with a catch. The movie will only be available to watch in theaters that one night.
If you don’t case about seeing it on the big screen, the very next day on August 22nd you will be able to get it digitally. It will also be making its way to DVD and Blu-ray, with a release for those coming on September 19th.
Federation trooper Johnny Rico is ordered to work with a group of new recruits on a satellite station on Mars, where giant bugs have decided to target their next attack.
