Halo 3 ODST live action trailer

Halo 3 ODST live action trailer

I don't think anyone in his right mind can say that Microsoft doesn't know how to create a great cinematic trailer for their Halo games after seeing the ones for Halo 3 and now this live action trailer (extended version) for Halo 3 ODST. Impressive.

I keep waiting to see Master Chief come smashing by in the background like a big behemoth destroying everything, and all of the ODST's just stop and stare like "Wooooah"

Looks awesome. But its just advertise not the movie.

Wish the game is as good as this trailer, i think they spend more time and money on this AWESOME trailer then the actual game, cause what i have seen at Gamecom its another generic dull space shooter.

i agree they should do it and make it like District 9 with realistic looking CGI

so ihe point of this game is to play as one of the ODST? But then that just makes the master chief seem insignificant doesnt it? Unless its like one hit kills you and super difficult.

Seeing this amazing trailer makes it even more obvious how fucking amazing a Halo movie could be if done right. After seeing district 9, i would bet microsoft is kicking themselves bigtime for not FORCING that movie to happen.

If done at a big enough budget (why the movie ended up getting shot down), a Halo movie would easily be a sci-fi epic like few others :-)

There are always haters around when Halo shines. ;)

Great trailer, they really should do a Halo movie with an overblown budged, run the risk of it being bad. I just have to know whenever it would work as a movie. ^^

This should be a movie trailer..

sent a link to the trailer to several friends and family member who aren't gamers. Most asked when this was in theaters. They were ready to buy tickets . . . and they avoid sci-fi movies like the plague.

However you see the 360 . . . they know how to sell snow to Eskimos.

off-topic: why is the rest of MS's advertising crap?

Im starting to like this ODST thing
Commented on 2009-09-09 08:08:28
No Halo Movie is so foolish. They need to just go make the damn thing already.
Commented on 2009-09-09 08:24:19
I thought that was kind of meh tbh.

Thats a surprise, but i guess theres no girle looking men running around with long hair and swords for you to enjoy :)

Back on topic this trailer kicks ass, and ODST day one for me.

^hahaha. They need elf ears too. And preferably make the fighting turn based.
Commented on 2009-09-09 11:30:36
Ill back jolli up it was meh, to be honest i care very little for this crap, i would rather see the actual game for the trailer or at very least a well edited trailer using the cg from the game
Getting sick of devs been that insequre with there product they have to create crap like this to advertise the game

If MS wants to make the movie, make the movie and keep your wannbe movie skills away from the damn games.
Commented on 2009-09-09 11:47:19
MS keep on doing what your doing, as it kicks ass!!

For all the lovers of the trailer you may want to check this out :)

You dont have to like the game or enjoy the action packed trailer, but saying that this is crap is just plain stupid.

There ARE other trailers that feature gameplay. This is just another medium of art to give a different perspective of the mythos that surrounds the game's story. Its purpose is to get people into the right mindset. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Now, if this were a teaser trailer at E3 and they showed this instead of giving any glimpse of what the game actually is, THEN I'd be annoyed... but this is simply icing on the cake. We already know what the game is.
Commented on 2009-09-09 12:32:37
First class as expected. I really hope the story lives up to the hype.
Commented on 2009-09-09 12:40:31
Brilliant trailer, but after i playd the demo at Gamecom, it felt old and dated and the graphics were uter shit for a next gen shooter game, im getting Forza 3 instead.

This ads for Halo are so gritty and dark, in a good way. But Halo games are so colorfoul :/. How is that?
Commented on 2009-09-09 14:21:46
i don't like halo, but this trailer was real good

Ouch! That was a bit of a low blow to Jolli. :P

I don't know why I'm so desperate for a Halo movie, as I'm not much of a fan of Halo's story - I've never really understood it, if I'm being honest (although I think that's probably because I've never made an effort to follow it). I guess I'm just curious more than anything, as I reckon it's got the potential to be one heck of a sci-fi movie - and, for some reason, I've really gotten into the sci-fi genre recently.

This trailer has only made me desire a Halo movie even more. Just imagine that battle scene in the trailer made even longer with even more spectacular effects? I'd certainly watch it.
