In 1997, director Paul Verhoeven created Starship Troopers, and what is now a sci-fi cult classic exploded onto the screen with a rousing mix of intergalactic warfare, raw teen angst and sly political satire. Loosely based on Robert Heinlein’s controversial, award-winning novel, the film startled audiences and critics alike with its bloodsoaked man-vs-bugs warfare and jawdropping visual effects which ultimately set a new standard in what an R-Rated big-budget sci-fi epic could achieve.
Now, for Starship Troopers’s 15th anniversary, Creature Features revisits this durable genre masterpiece with an unprecedented cast and crew reunion screening at the Arclight Cinema in Hollywood on Thursday, May 10th at 7:30pm.
Host Paul M. Sammon (Filmmaker, commentator and author of The Making of Starship Troopers as well as Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner) leads a panel discussion with guests: Actor Casper Van Dien, Screenwriter & Producer Ed Neumeier, Visual Effects Supervisor Phil Tippett, Creature FX designer Alec Gillis and more to be announced. Along with the guest panel, a dazzling display of original props, costumes, production artwork and merchandising will be showcaseed during the event.
The event takes place beginning at 7:30pm, on Thursday, May 10th at Arclight Cinemas Hollywood, located at 6360 W. Sunset Blvd., in Los Angeles, California. Tickets are sale exclusively at www.creaturefeatures.com.
