Starship Troopers book poster by jarredspekter Starship Troopers book poster by jarredspekter
Based on the novel by Robert A. Heinlein 'Starship Troopers'
I used wallpaper from the game Halo Reach, a bug from the film version, and some night sky images; all heavily edited.

A fake movie trailer I made for a film based on the novel:[link]

Paul Verhoven's film version is actually a parody of the book it is based on, subverting the very points Heinlein was trying to make about his beliefs. It seems only fair that one of the most influential works of science fiction some time sees a faithful film version, no matter how controversial the subject matter seems to me.

The Skinnes as I heard and read where in the book as alien allies to The Bugs. They were in the show as well.

Thats fine, that would be intersting to see them as well, It may make things alot more horrific for the soldiers.

All I can say is "Awesome Piece of Work!"

Well maybe I'll also say that while the movie is a good popcorn flick to watch when you want to turn off your brain I wouldn't mind having a more faithful adaption, dealing mostly with the philosophy of a "true" citizen society.

Probably wouldn't be as entertaining though perhaps more inclined to head for "cult" status...

Enough babble, I like you work on this.

Amazing! I love the way you combined stock images to come up with an image that really captures the spirit of what the Starship Troopers novel was all about. It's a shame that Hollywood never actually read Heinlein's book, choosing instead relying on some horrible Cliff's Note's version...

Actually Verhoven admits to reading a few chapters into the book then giving up in disgust.
That's the ticket. Adopt a story you hate!
A real Starship Troopers movie I can see as being one of the most truly controversial movies ever released :O_o:

I had no idea...but that explains SO much! Thanks for the info. And I completely agree...RAH's socio-political world-view would truly have made for entertaining and controversial fair.
