Ridley Scott’s Halo Film Gets Its First Trailer – “Halo: Nightfall”

Ridley Scott is a cinematic genius. If you went to his IMDB page, you would be absolutely blown away with everything he has been involved with. Ridley Scott is probably most well-known for movies like Alien, Blade Runner and Prometheus. Despite everything he has had a hand in, that world is solely attributed to and known as belonging to him. If you’re aware of Halo or are a big gamer and have played the Halo games, I would be willing to bet that you would vote unanimously along with your Halo-gaming brethren, that if Halo is going to be made into a movie, it’s in damn good hands with Ridley Scott behind it.

Halo: Nightfall

So as geeky as I am, I’m not actually a huge gamer. I will, on occasion, sit down and play with some friends from time to time, but I haven’t logged months and months of my life on gaming consoles. Regardless, I still keep my finger on the pulse of the gaming world because they’re awesome. Ridley Scott just makes Halo 5 a whole lot more awesome than most games.

We’ve been following the Ridley Scott/Halo development for a few months now. We first got wind of it back in July…

Get the First Look at Ridley Scott’s Trailer for the Digital Series Halo: Nightfall

It was a confusing situation because there were reports this Ridley Scott, live-action Halo project would be a web-series. Then there were other reports that this would be made into a feature film. In the end it appears that both reports are correct. The Halo-familiar will most likely be aware of the similar campaign leading up to the release of the Halo 4 game. There was a live-action web-series made to introduce the game, then was later compiled into a full-length, 90-minute film and released in its entirety. I actually watched it on Netflix a little over a year ago and didn’t even realize what I was watching. Here it is for you.

Halo: Forward Unto Dawn

So there you have it. If you’re into Ridley Scott but not so aware of Halo, all you should need to see is the trailer and know that this web-series/film has his Alien/Prometheus touch all over it. Halo might as well have been made to one day belong to Ridley Scott because there’s no getting around it… they meet directly in the middle and fit perfectly. Hit up the comments and lets hear what your thoughts and expectations are. I’ll see you down there.

You better believe I’ll be following up on the Halo web-series/film AND all Prometheus 2 developements, so I would definitely hit me up on facebooktwitter and instagram if I were you.

    Wow, thanks for this. Had no idea it existed. I am a huge gamer, although not a big Halo fan, but it’s still nice to see what’s out there when it comes to video game-related media, even if not for a game I play that much. Still like to keep up on what’s going on 🙂 Watching it now. Thanks again!!

      Hey! Glad to hear you were into the post and dig the trailer and the movie. Also, cool to see you still own the title of being a “gamer” with #gamergate being such a big issue within that community right now. In my opinion it’s the typical scenario: the vocal minority giving everyone a bad name. Regardless, i’m not a huge gamer, but I do enjoy them from time to time. I’m a huge Sci-fi/fantasy geek so Halo’s plot lands right in my wheelhouse. Toss in the mix a name like Ridley Scott and you’ve got my full, undivided attention for sure! Keep posted with me. I’ll definitely be following the the web-series as they roll out the new episodes and all kinds of other brand new content. Thanks again for reading!
