During the NFL championship game today, Paramount Plus unleashed a brand new trailer for their highly ambitious and eagerly awaited live action adaptation of the iconic video game Halo. This one offers up a lot more footage then we saw in the initial teasers so check out Master Chief in action below!
Pablo Schreiber who starred in Den of Thieves with Gerard Butler stars as the iconic Master Chief made popular on the video game franchise. He stars along with Danny Sapani (Ear for Eye) and Olive Gray (Rose: A Love Story) as Jacob and Miranda Keyes, Bokeem Woodbine (Spenser Confidential) as Soren-066, Shabana Azmi (The Empire) as Admiral Margaret Parangosky, and Natascha McElhone (Designated Survivor) as Dr. Catherine Halsey. Bentley Kalu (Stairs), Natasha Culzac (Men in Black: International) and Kate Kennedy are also in the cast and they will be playing newer characters to the universe.
I’m a casual player of the video games but I’m all for a new sci-fi action series so this one looks like it’ll have a nice polished theatrical look to it. I’m eager to see how the special effects are as well as the action set pieces.
Halo hits March 24, 2022 on Paramount+.
