This summer the “Starship Troopers” series comes back to life, but not in the way that you’d expect. A new Japanese trailer for the fourth film in the series offers a new peek at the film and also seems to embrace the cheesy nature of the originals.
In the film, 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…
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is bringing the animated entry into the series this summer with series stars Casper Van Dien and Ed Neumeier producing.
