Based On The Video Game Franchise, ‘Red Faction: Origins’ Film Coming to Syfy

What happens when you take some of the minds attached to Caprica, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Universe and Torchwood and place them in the world based on the popular game franchise Red Faction? Pure amazement.

Introducing the brand new Syfy film Red Faction: Origins. For those diehards out there, this story takes place between Red Faction: Guerrilla and the upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon games. Here’s the premise.

Twenty-five years have passed since Alec Mason (Robert Patrick) led the Martian Colonies to freedom …and 12 years since vengeful enemies killed his wife, kidnapped his daughter Lyra (Tamzin Merchant), and left a broken hero in their wake.

Jake Mason (Brian J. Smith), Alec’s last surviving son and an officer in the Red Faction Militia, has his world turned inside out when he discovers that now, 12 years after her kidnapping, his sister is still alive.  As a powerful new enemy swarms across the planet, Jake goes out to find her, only to learn that his lost sister is one of them…a cold-blooded soldier sworn to destroy the Red Faction.

Jake must now battle the relentless regime and somehow reunite a family torn apart by war. Kate Vernon portrays The Matriarch, leader of the tribal Marauders sect.

Directed by Peabody-Award winner Michael Nankin (Caprica, Battlestar Galactica, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), the film is set to make its premiere on Saturday, June 4th at 9pm ET/PT.

Take a look at the very first trailer after the jump.

    This trailer looks great. Which is seriously surprising to
    me considering the track record for turning video games into movies. Could we
    possibly be looking at a series sometime in the near future? I also expect this
    to look great on my new high definition setup too. When DISH Network (they’re
    my employer) started offering HD free for life on their huge list of HD
    channels and the price of new flat-panels came down, I had to finally take the
    plunge. And I’m glad I did because everything with special effects looks so
    much better now. I love it. And for anyone who may be sitting on the fence on
    whether of not to make the switch, I say go for it! You won’t be disappointed.
