Microsoft has released another excellent short video based upon their Halo video game universe, directed by Neill Blomkamp, the director pegged to helm the $200m feature film version of Halo.
It’s an excellent video, with just enough Halo stuff to keep the budget down but get fans drooling. Ostensibly, these videos are to promote Halo 3, which is coming to the Xbox 360 in late September.
But I’ve been really thinking that these are exercises not only to drum up piublicity for the Halo film but to get Blomkamp settled in the universe. I’m a huge fan of Halo and I have to admit I get a bit geek giddy when I see the Pelican drop the Warthog for the grunts, or when that first plasma grenade from the Brutes explodes.
