Official Film Series Bundle Based On The Globally Renowned Halo Franchise Now Available On iTunes In The U.S.A, Courtesy Of Content Media

Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

July 31ST, 2017, London, UK – Today Content Media announced the release the official film series based on the globally renowned best-selling Halo franchise only in the U.S.A. The bundle includes “Halo Legends,” “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn,” “Halo: Nightfall” and “Halo: The Fall of Reach,” and is available on iTunes.

Created in collaboration with some of the world’s leading animators from Japan, “Halo Legends” draws you into the center of humanity’s ongoing battles with the Covenant, dynamically depicted in cutting-edge animation styles that deliver breathtaking visuals and gripping adventure. “Halo Legends” dives deep into the rich Halo universe and explores the Master Chief’s mysterious origins, advanced combat capabilities of Spartans, and the tense rivalry between Spartans and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs). “Halo Legends” is an 119-minute long animated film starring Atsuko Tanaka (“Ghost in the Shell”), Josh Grelle (“Mass Effect: Paragon Lost”) and Greg Ayres (“Samurai 7”).

“Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” is a coming-of-age story that follows cadet Thomas Lasky at Corbulo Academy, a 26th-century military training academy. Following in the footsteps of his mother and brother, Lasky is unsure of his future within the military but is forced to act when the academy is attacked by a massive force of Covenant, a religious alliance of aliens. Directed by Stewart Hendler, “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” is a 90-minute Live-Action movie starring Tom Green, Ty Olsson, Max Carver, Daniel Cudmore, Anna Popplewell and Osric Chau.

Set between the events of “Halo 4” and “Halo 5: Guardians,” “Halo: Nightfall” is the second full-length live-action feature for the Halo® franchise. From Executive Producer Ridley Scott (“Prometheus”, “Blade Runner”) and award-winning Director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (“Battlestar Galactica”, “The Pillars Of The Earth”), “Halo: Nightfall” features an all-star cast including Mike Colter (“Luke Cage,” “The Good Wife”), Christina Chong (“24: Live Another Day”), Steven Waddington (“Sleepy Hollow”) and Luke Neal (“Final Prayer”). “Halo: Nightfall,” tells the personal story of Jameson Locke, a legendary manhunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), Earth’s most powerful and secretive military branch. At 98-minutes, the film provides the background to this pivotal new character in the Halo universe, who eventually becomes a Spartan-IV in “Halo 5: Guardians.”

“Halo: The Fall of Reach” is based on the namesake Halo novel by Eric Nylund. This 65-minute feature tells the dramatic tale of the origin and intrigue behind the SPARTAN program that propelled characters like the Master Chief and Dr. Catherine Halsey into the pantheon of Halo lore. The story reveals the events that brought Master Chief and Blue Team together, including their Spartan training and their daring mission to strike back at the Covenant during the first days of the deadly alien invasion. The animated film was produced and directed by SEQUENCE, the award-winning Vancouver-based animation studio responsible for the “Terminals” featured in “Halo 4” and “Halo 2: Anniversary,” and this marks their most ambitious and high-fidelity Halo animation yet.

Exclusively published by Microsoft Studios and developed by 343 Industries, the Halo franchise is an award-winning collection of properties, over $5 billion in worldwide sales to date, that has transcended video games and grown into a global entertainment phenomenon. Now, Halo fans in the U.S.A can go beyond the game and immerse themselves in the Halo universe with this special bundle, available only on iTunes.
