DENVER, CO -- It’s a beautiful day to kill bugs! The CG animated sequel to the 1997 cult classic Starship Troopers will get the big screen treatment when Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars hits cinemas nationwide for one night this summer. Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer return as the voices of Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores alongside comedian and Starship Troopers super-fan DeRay Davis in an all-new military adventure from the writer of Starship Troopers and Robocop, Ed Neumeier.

Fathom Events and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions present Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars in US movie theaters on Monday, August 21 at 7:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time. Each showing will also feature a special introduction by writer Ed Neumeier and actor Casper Van Dien, plus never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the filmmakers.

In Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars, Johnny Rico has just been demoted and sent to a small satellite station on Mars whilst the Federation attacks the bugs’ home planet. While trying to train his new recruits on this remote quiet station, the bugs show up in a surprise attack, but the Federation’s Fleet is too far away to help. It’s up to Rico and his Troopers to save the planet and uncover how the bugs made it so close to home.

“We are so excited to be working with Sony to debut Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars in movie theaters nationwide,” Fathom Events VP of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said. “Twenty years later, the original film remains one of the most beloved science-fiction movies of all time and this sequel will be a treat for fans new and old alike.”
