Judging from the 5D website traffic stats it’s safe to assume that our Skype interview with the legendary Casper Van Dien went down rather well since it took place a couple of weeks ago. If you haven’t read the article, in which Casper talks about all things Starship Troopers as well as displaying a deliciously dark and twisted sense of humour throughout then you can find it RIGHT HERE.
The interview with Casper was arranged by the good people of Park Circus, Established in 2003, Park Circus is a leading global sales agency and distribution company. They represent over 25,000 films from Hollywood and British studios and a large number of independent rights owners. It’s not all about classic films though, their contemporary releasing and sales slate includes titles from established directors as well as the new discoveries of today.
Park Circus had been charged with e worldwide marketing for the soon to be released Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars…….
“C’mon you apes, you wanna live forever?! I have only one rule. Everybody fights, no one quits. The bugs have breached Mars and the Federation’s Fleet is too far to help. It’s up to us to save the planet. On the bounce, Troopers! The only good bug is a dead bug! Oorah! Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer return as the voices of Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores alongside comedian and Starship Troopers superfan DeRay Davis in an all-new military adventure from the writer of Starship Troopers and Robocop, Ed Neumeier.”
As well as arranging the interview those rather nice Park Circus peeps also offered to provide some swag for a 5D Competition prize – and well, the first part of the swag arrived today; namely a number of rather fine and dandy Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars T-shirts. The second part of the upcoming competition swag, a Starship Troopers Box set is currently on its way to 5D headquarters.
The competition to win the box set & T-shirts will go live next week so in the meantime I’ll leave with you an image of the fetching shirts. I apologise right now for the fact that yours truly is modelling them………. for some reason I don’t look quite as good as Casper does in his.
