Master Chief in Halo Series

Our first full-length trailer at Paramount+’s Halo series gives us a good look at the live-action adaptation of the iconic video game series.

“Since the original Halo released in 2001, Microsoft has been trying for a long time to get Bungie and 343 Industries’ sci-fi shooter into live-action beyond excellent commercials and web series tie-ins.
