A brief teaser for the live-action Halo series coming to the Paramount+ streaming service aired last December during the Game Awards, but it didn't showcase much footage. Now, we have word that a full trailer will air this Sunday during halftime of the AFC Championship Game.

To accompany the announcement, the streamer has debuted a new promo poster featuring Pablo Schreiber's Master Chief.

The big-budget adaptation is expected to stick pretty close to the premise of the original game, as an "epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant" plays out. The show is expected to "weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future."

Halo will also star Natascha McElhone as Dr. Catherine Halsey, Yerin Ha as Kwan Ha, Charlie Murphy as Makee, Shabana Azmi as Admiral Margaret Parangosky, Bokeem Woodbine as Soren-066, Olive Gray as Miranda Keyes, Kate Kennedy as Kai-125, Natasha Culzac as Riz-028, Bentley Kalu as Vannak-134, Danny Sapani as Captain Jacob Keyes, and Jen Taylor as the voice of Cortana.

No premiere date has been announced, but we should find out when the show is set to air this Sunday when the trailer is released.

I've been dying for a proper trailer, hopefully it includes a start date for the season.

I feel Halo really deserved the big-screen cinematic treatment. I hope it doesn't come across too small scale or cheap as a TV series.
bobevanz - 1/25/2022, 8:34 PM
"I need a weapon" - Master Chief, prolly
JustAChillFan - 1/25/2022, 8:55 PM
Idk man, I have a gut feeling this is going to suck. which sucks because halo was my childhood.

Please! In the name of everything holy…Let this be the project that breaks the standard video game to movie curse…
Reeds2Much - 1/25/2022, 9:54 PM
Funny hat man make pew pew deepest lore yes.

Waiting for the CW article is going to be torture.
Super12 - 1/25/2022, 10:31 PM
Really looking forward to this. This and the LOTR Rings of Power series might be my most anticipated releases in 2022.

Why would they pay for a commercial time slot? Do they know what decade this is?
Ha1frican - 1/25/2022, 10:52 PM
Can’t wait. Just got a Series X this month so I’ve played through

Halo: Reach
Halo: Anniversary
Halo2: Anniversary
Halo 3
Halo3: ODST
Halo 4
Halo 5

And I started Halo Infinite today. So far I was really impressed by Halo 5 given everyone said it sucked (that cliffhanger did suck a bit though) and I’m still unsold on Infinite but we’ll see. Hopefully this does wells bc the Halo lore is super rich and done well it could be adapted to a killer movie or tv series. Some of the cut scenes in 4 and 5 are damn near theater grade cinema and 5 plays like an Avengers movie especially that opening.
Super12 - 1/26/2022, 10:04 AM
@Ha1frican - Halo 5 felt a bit like The Last Jedi to me, in that they took a beloved character from the OT (Cortana/Luke) and turned them bad, while trying (and failing) to push out the fan favorite lead characters and introduce a new fresh-faced crew. Both attempts fell pretty flat in my opinion.
Ha1frican - 1/26/2022, 10:26 AM
@Super12 - Maybe it’s bc I played it after the release of Halo Infinite so I knew Chief was staying the main protagonist but I didn’t get that feeling. I see what you’re saying and the comparison is valid (although I like TLJ so it probably would work for me anyway lol) but I felt it was really in keeping with the ending of Halo 4 which was all about accepting that Cortana as we know her was doomed and that she wasn’t coming back. While Locke was just ok I also really liked the juxtaposition of Blue team and Osiris. I believed (especially after 4) that John would do anything for the chance to bring Cortana back even ignore the UNSC, and I enjoyed seeing the new dynamic of Blue team. Maybe that’s just bc I’m a huge ODST and Nathan Fillion fan so they got me by having Buck back but I liked all of it aside from how abrupt the ending was. It was honestly kind of disappointing loading up Infinite to see they didn’t really pick up with that and are seemingly ignoring the ending for the most part in favorite of the Banished. I was enjoying the Promethean stuff but going back to fighting covenant and Brutes after having just played through that with 2,3, and ODST it feels pretty regressive imo but we’ll see how I feel after I play some more.

I didn't even know they were making a Halo show til now lol
Scarilian - 1/26/2022, 12:06 AM
Focus is clearly heavily on the idea of using 'diversity' as a method of trying to sell the series and it shows they have misunderstood the target audience and clearly feel it needs to be shoved in your face for you to care demonstrating the story is not going to be well written.
MyCoolYoung - 1/26/2022, 12:19 AM
I never could get into halo. First person shooters just don’t do it for me so I have no clue what this is about. Maybe I’ll try again after all these years
HeavyMetal4Life - 1/26/2022, 1:15 AM
OT, but that episode of Superman & Lois was freaking amazing. That fight scene in particular, omfg.
SeanMPC - 1/26/2022, 6:41 AM
After today's episode of Boba Fett, I feel they're gonna WISH they'd gotten this trailer out earlier lol

Please don't suck, please don't suck, please don't suck.
