Microsoft and Machinima have gotten together for Comic Con to release a trailer for the upcoming Halo live-action series. You can find the 5 episode series this fall on the new Machinima Prime YouTube channel. The first episode will premier on October 5, 2012.
The series centers around main character Thomas Lasky who is played by Tom Green (not the annoying one) who is a Cadet in the UNSC Academy. It will highlight his split feelings about the human/covenant war and his role in it. Master Chief will also play an important role in the series, as well as to Thomas Lasky. The series will be taking place a little before the human/covenant war, leading up to Halo 4.
Microsoft has also announced that in addition to the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn Special Editon ($99) a 90-minute version of the series as well as expanded content and a making-of featurette will be included.
Anyway, enough talking, check out this full length Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn trailer!
