Watch the Halo 4 live-action series now – ‘Forward Unto Dawn – Part 1′Posted 11:59 am on Friday, October 5th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Halo has had its share of live-action content like the Halo: Landfall shorts directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9) and the Halo 3: ODST commercial directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Hunstman). Now, we get a 5-part web series that is developed by Microsoft and acts as a prequel to Halo 4. Each episode will average around 15 minutes, with the first one being 20-minutes long. If we calculate the total running time together, it’d be an estimated 80 minutes. This is the closest thing we’re going to get for a Halo movie in a while.
Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn – Part 1
“Synopsis – Thomas Lasky came to Corbulo Academy of Military Science with his mother and brother’s impressive military careers hanging over his head. Haunted by ghosts from his past, he has serious doubts about the war he’s expected to fight. As fellow cadet Chyler Silva tries to help him find his place at the academy, tensions with other squad members approach the breaking point.”
Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn is directed by Stewart Hendler (H+, Sorority Row) and stars Daniel Cudmore (X-Men 2 & 3, Twilight) as Master Chief, Anna Popplewell (The Chronicles of Narnia) as Chyler Silva, Tom Green (Dance Academy) as Thomas Lasky, and Ayelet Zurer (Angels & Demons, Munich) as Mehaffey. Josh Feldman and Lydia Antonini are executive producers. Each episode will be released weekly from October 4th until the release of Halo 4 on November 6, 2012.
