New Live-Action Halo 4 Series Debuts at Comic-Con


Perhaps hoping to assuage people who have been waiting in vain for a Halo movie, Microsoft and 343 Industries arrived at Comic-Con 2012 with Halo: Forward Unto Dawn. This live-action video series acts as an origin story for the whole USNC/Covenant conflict, following a group of fresh-faced soldiers in training who have to abruptly man up when the alien invasion hits. There’s a lot of awesome teenage angst, along with the phrase “This is not a drill!” used in its appropriate context.

Hosted by Machinima and directed by Stewart Handler (the auteur behind 2009′s Sorority Row), the series will air its first episode on October 5th, 2012. Excitement will build through five episodes until the release of Halo 4 on November 6th; consumers who shell out extra cash will receive an extended 90-minute cut with their Limited Edition of the game. Check out the trailer below to see what the excitement is all about.

If they can make this then why in the hell is the movie not being made?

that is the question I keep asking myself, five 15 minute episodes is halfway to a full-length move anyhow, just probably on less of a budget
