Earlier this week, we told you about Microsoft's plan to finally get a Halo movie off the ground in the form of a multi-million dollar web series that will be re-packaged as a full-length movie in conjunction with Halo 4. Halo: Forward Unto Dawn won't begin appearing on the web until October, but the epic first full trailer is here.

The film begins in a military training camp, where aspiring young warriors endure grueling exercises in the hope that they'll one day fight for the United Nations Space Command. Then everything changes when a monstrous alien race invades. The trainees become soldiers whether they're ready or not, and they find themselves at the mercy of the legendary Master Chief.

The first episode of Forward Until Dawn will debut on Machinima Oct. 5. Check out the trailer below. Is it the Halo movie you were hoping for?
