Immerse yourself in the Halo universe with Neill Blomkamp's newest action-packed video.
It sure reminds me of those U.S. Army adds I see on tv. Except this video didn't have that stupid music thay played all the time like the army one's.
of what a Halo movie could be like.
You've got to remember that this is done on a very small budget, but it still looks pretty good.
Very gritty, action packed, and the effects look pretty good. The banshee's flying past and the pelican dropping off the Warthog looks pretty cool.
The brutes look very dodgy, but just imagine a WETA CGI brute or Elite with a major budget??
I personally think this is a little teaser from Neill Blomkamp, Bungie, Peter Jackson and MS to major movie studio's to show what they could do. They obviously not spending all this cash to gain nothing but happiness from the fans.
They are aiming to attract a film studio to get the Halo movie made. Once Halo 3 breaks all records when released in September, studio's will come flocking. Here's hoping that a studio like Paramount or Warner get it and not Fox who mess everything up!
I thought it was confirmed that the movie is already being filmed?
It would make sense to me. Filming now, release in summer '08 after H3 has sold in record numbers, creating a Star Wars fanbase of our generation.
Most contributors are too lazy to embed the video or find out how to do it when they submit video news. Thanks for taking the time and effort to embed the video here.
I put in a "Good" rating for your submission. (I would have given you a "Not Good" if there's no embedded video.)
we need to get on people that dont embed.
What are they like 12 or something?
N4G is an aggregator style site that recieves thousands of hits a day. Smaller sites use N4G to promote their own news and to try and drive traffic to their own site.
By embedding a video that a specific site found first (although with GT stuff it is sort of a grey area) the the site doing the submitting would cut off any click throughs to their site and hence would not drive traffic.
N4G provides a great service not just for readers and enthusiasts to have a one stop shop for all of their gaming news, but for journalists and site editors to try and increase their readership.
Failing to embedd a video is not lazy, its a recognized and proven promotion tactic.
is hoping this is at least a snippet of how good the Halo movie will be
That video was pretty sweet.
Is this what the halo movie will be like??
I thought peter jackson was doing it
Peter Jackson is the Executive Producer. Neil is the Director chosen by Jackson.
Although still not movie standards.
Imagine if this type of stuff were used in iraq, I bet the people over there would be like wtf is this technology lol.
How do you think they reacted to seeing out stealth fighters and bombers?
Hopefully they will make the movie.
I may not be the biggest halo serious fan, but that looks sweet, thats something I'd pay 8 bucks to see :D, maybe even twice if it turns out good!
the troops look cool - but the setting is g@y - its honestly looks like they are shooting in a studio - walls?? come on - i hope they dont make this a low budget movie and join the hall of shame of video games to movies list with mario and bloodrayne or whatever
well it is just suppose to be a small short movie, it doesn't have a studio behind it
Dude that little quickie was probably made with pennies compared to what the major film will be.
It was just a demo of what they can do. Only expect it to get exponentially better.
Sweet as hell, n' no, it's not up to movie standards. With that being said, I can perfectly understand why it isn't up to movie standards; it isn't supposed to be. It's just a short n' even those cost I don't know how much to make. The budget for the movie is already going to be massive. These are just to give us a small taste of what can n' will inevitably BE.
This was a great short.
If the Halo movie is anything like this, good lord have mercy on my soul. Halo = pure ownage. With Peter Jackson co directing, I'm confident the halo movie will kick ballsacks.
I posted this awhile ago
Best Halo video to date IMO!
I am one of the biggest halo fans out there, but if this is what the final movie will look like that I'm going to be disappointed. This looks like it's really low budgeted.
Don't disagree without giving a comment. Cause you know I'm right.
well that's what I thought they were, but why waste time when the real movie by peter jackson is being made?
Yah I thought that's what it was, still silly I got 3 disagrees
This is just promo short for Halo 3, hence the focus on the Brutes. It's nothing more than that, and obviously a movie gets a little more attention than a low budget, 90 second short film. Don't pretend to be the biggest Halo fan when you have no idea what this short film was for or about.
Ebay! After the movie is filmed, it would be weak if they sold some.
The price would be so f**king high though.
"We demand $2,000,000.00 for the 1:1 scale fully working UNSC Warthog, fully equipped, and including fully operation gatling turret! Mow down those annoying pedestrians! It's your choice, tusk them, or have a friend man the gun and mow them down! The possibilities are endless when you have you own Warthog. Limited quantities."
I understand it's not the movie but a quick glimpse of something happening in the Halo universe! This is cool stuff and i can't wait for part 2 to be released! One thing I noticed on gametrailers below this vid was the pax multiplayer showing and that flame thrower was pretty cool!
that was lame as hell
if this is what we can expect from the halo movie, i'll gladly stay home.
While your there, blow your head off for being so dumb.
You honestly think the final product will look like this teaser?
I liked the video, and the effects were awesome. But watching it it makes me hope that they don't go for the documentary style too much when it comes to the final movie. I still want some good 'ole OTT Hollywood action Halo-stlye.
That was pretty cool, but the brutes looked kinda crappy. I do hope that the Halo movie will be good. Games being turned into movies are either really amazing or totally poo like the one off the bottom of the shoe sort of poo.
My only beef with these short films is the director is trying to cram as much action and style in such a short time. I would like these films to be a little longer so the action shots arn't so quick and rushed. Other than that he seems to be doing a bit of Black Hawk Down griddy war element, which is a good thing. I also think that the film's should be filmed in a more rated R tone because the PG 13 "watch the action way over there" or the "cam is to shakey" to see the action clearly will just ruin the Halo movie.
300 comes with a short preview of the movie Zack wanted to make. It was made on a very small budget, special effects were ok, not great....BUT they got their point across. It was intended to sell the movies to studios for financial support.
When you try to compare the short clip that was made of 300 compared to the final movie, it is a HUGE difference. Makes me believe this short clip of Halo looks ok, but will be a HUGE diffrence compared to the final movie
