I found a few shorts that the director, Neill Blomkamp has done, on Youtube. Really interesting stuff, so I have growing faith in this now; especially in their (director, WETA, etc) ability to create a new, wholly realisitic world.

I've only seen the first video but it seems like this guy has the skills to pull off a Halo movie. Some of the style and shots reminded me of Ridley Scott. I like how the military handled their guns, pretty realistic. Special effects were pretty good too. Imagine what he can do if he's given a real budget.

Those videos actually interest me more in terms of concept for a plot than Halo, though I really want to see a Halo movie. With PJ producing and this guy directing it should be a pretty good flick.

Will they keep it true to the game?
Meaning (for interior areas) will they just use one room over and over again?

No frikkin' kidding. That was the shit.

I liked the skinny Briarios, Tetra Vaal, too. Was that all CGI or was it also prosthetics? If that was CGI, it's some of the best I've ever seen. (Accounting for the tiny image and what not.)

Fox Backed out because of a $135 million budget. Thats pocket money for FOX! With the team that was with the Halo movie would have made it an excellent movie. Fox I ask to take a challenge with this movie. What have you got to lose?
I'm sure this, along with 140 signatures, will convince them!
