‘Halo’ Trailer: Mixed Reactions to Paramount’s VideoGame Adaptation


Master Chief is finally gearing up for action, but some fans are still skeptical.


Paramount Plus has unveiled the official trailer for its highly anticipated science fiction series “Halo.” The first look footage also revealed a premiere date of March 24.


Based on Xbox Game Studios’ best-selling series of first-person shooter video games, “Halo” is set in the 26th century and focuses on the adventures of Master Chief (Pablo Schreiber), a cybernetically enhanced super-soldier known as a Spartan that defends humanity under the orders of the United Nations Space Command. While plot details of the live-action series are being kept under wraps, most games in the “Halo” franchise focus on the UNSC’s war with an alien theocracy known as the Covenant.
