Have you seen this? I woke up to an e-mail this morning telling me that the first teaser trailer for the live-action Halo 4 series that’ll be broadcast on the Machinima Prime channel was up and running. While you don’t see much in the video, there is something thrilling about seeing Master Chief in the flesh (well, in the armor), and knowing that in a few more months there’s going to be a whole lot more of this.
The five-episode series, called, Forward Unto Dawn, will start airing in October to coincide with the release of Halo 4. The videos will take “fans back to the terrifying beginning of the Human/Covenant war.” It’ll all lead into the events of Halo 4 itself, so we’ve got some solid prequel action going here. The full trailer will debut at San Diego Comic-Con, which runs from July 12 through July 15…so if you’re going, you’re a luckier man/woman than I.
How do you feel about the forthcoming live-action series? And what are your favorite Machinima network shows, now that we’re on the subject? I’d very much like to know which ones you thought really hit the mark. TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK NOW.
