Uncut Live Action ‘Halo 3: ODST’ Trailer

Picture 2For those of us who are a fan of the franchise, we all know the headache that comes with waiting for a live action Halo movie. From Peter Jackson to Steven Spielberg, the film has gone through so many rumors and incarnations, there’s no way of knowing if we’ll ever get to see the Spartans fragging aliens on the big screen. With that in mind, we have to take pleasures in the smaller things.

In promoting Microsoft’s Halo 3: ODST, out later this month, they produced a TV spot in which we see the life, and death, of an ODST Spartan. The team just released the uncut version, which is about a minute longer. It has a very strong Battlestar Galactica vibe, which works, because BSG can very easily meld with the Halo universe.

The video shows everything we’d expect to see from a Halo film trailer: the Spartan masks, a Covenant brute, explosions, and lots of yelling. Check out the uncut trailer after the jump, and pick up your copy of Halo 3: ODST on September 22.

    I really like what they have done with this it quite amazing for just a video game trailer. And could not agree more with the first comment. There is nothing in the would as good as BSG. It is the finest tv show ever produced and chances are we will never see anything like it again ever. That is not to say I don’t want to see a amazing Halo movie. Sorry no matter the cost for any studio the film will make so much money it is stupid.

    Okay, first of all.. SPARTANS ARE NOT ODSTs!!!! An ODST is an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper. They’re really beefy UNSC Marines, that’s all! SPARTANs are actual genetically enhanced/engineered children. Read the books… Play the games… You’d know that ODSTs are -NOT= SPARTANs… They’re just Marines… and by the way, this is NOTHING like Battlestar Galactica, so please, don’t even put BSG and HALO in the same category.

    Umm… ODST soldiers aren’t Spartans. They’re just regular Marines.

    Wasn’t it around the time the Scottish were rebelling against British crown rule? So, a long time ago.

    Does anybody remember when bagpipes became synonymous with wartime?

    Looks really good. Maybe John is right and they should do the movie.
