An animated sequel to Starship Troopers, the 1997 cult classic and satirical military science-fiction action film directed by Paul Verhoeven is debuting this summer and for one night only.

Titled Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars, the animated film takes places 20 years after Starship Troopers, and it finds Rico demoted and relegated to a satellite station on Mars where he and a group of green recruits must defend the planet against an unexpected bug attack.

Notable stars Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer are returning to reprise their roles as Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores.

Theater screenings will take place in nearly 500 select theaters across the nation on Monday, August 21, 2017 — with two screenings at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. local time in each location.

Each screening will feature bonus material that include interviews with the filmmakers and behind-the-scenes footage.

Tickets for the event will be on sale here starting Monday, June 19, 2017.

Now, here’s the first trailer of Tom Cruise as a drug smuggling pilot in American Made.
