   Set in the UNSC (United Nations Space Command) academy before the war with the Covenant began, Forward Unto Dawn follows cadets training to become the next generation of soliders.  Focusing on cadet Thomas Lansky, it shows his struggles with the military and leadership.  The attacking Covenant change everything for the cadets and Lansky however.  Inspired by the actions of Master Chief, they learn what it's like to become heroes and to sacrifice.

  The story is made to tie into the story of Halo 4 and the Halo Infinity Multiplayer experience.  Players that become familiar with this ongoing should see connections when playing Halo 4.  Forward Unto Dawn will come out weekly until the launch of Halo 4 on November 6.
 

Directed by Stewart Hendler (“H+,” Sorority Row), written by Todd Helbing and Aaron Helbing ("Smallville," "Spartacus") and backed by a top-tier production team, including Executive Producers Lydia Antonini and Josh Feldman, former Warner Bros. and Playtone executives, respectively, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn features a diverse cast of established and up-and-coming Hollywood talent, including Tom Green ("Dance Academy") as Thomas Lasky, Anna Popplewell ("The Chronicles of Narnia") as Chyler Silva, Daniel Cudmore (X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, "The Twilight Saga") as the Master Chief, Ayelet Zurer (Angels & Demons, Munich) as Mehaffey, Mike Dopud (Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol) as General Black, Enisha Brewster (Footloose) as April Orenski, Masam Holden ("Grey’s Anatomy" Elizabethtown) as Michael "Sully" Sullivan, Osric Chau (2012) as JJ Chen, Iain Belcher ("Supernatural") as Vickers, and Kat De Lieva as Dimah.

An extended, 90-minute Special Edition featuring additional footage and bonus content will be available Nov. 6 in the Halo 4 Limited Edition, and on Blu-ray, DVD, Xbox Video, iTunes and video on demand services this Dec. in the U.S. and Canada.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane


Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
