Xbox has revealed the first full trailer for their upcoming live-action digital series Halo: Nightfall, and it looks like executive producer Ridley Scott has his fingerprints all over this, reminding us of the futuristic gothic horror look he pioneered in Alien and Prometheus. Check it out below!
Mike Colter stars in the series as Jameson Locke, a surgically-enhanced super soldier who is a rising star in a futuristic Spartan army and troubled by the military industrial complex he inhabits. The story takes place between the events of Halo 4 and the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians, in which Locke will play an integral role.
TV director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan is at the helm of the project with “Prison Break” creator Paul Scheuring providing the script. Scott and David Zucker are executive producing the project, which is said to be similar in scope to Machinima’s recent Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn webseries. Halo: Nightfall will debut on November 11 through “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” and the Halo Channel.
