Posted Thu Jul 5, 2012 at 06:00 AM PDT by

An all-new CGI animated chapter in the sci-fi franchise will attempt to kill 'em all on Blu-ray this August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony will unleash a 'Starship Troopers: Invasion' on Blu-ray on August 28.

A distant Federation outpost Fort Casey comes under attack by bugs. The team on the fast attack ship Alesia is assigned to help the Starship John A. Warden stationed in Fort Casey evacuate along with the survivors and bring military intelligence safely back to Earth. Carl Jenkins, now ministry of Paranormal Warfare, takes the starship on a clandestine mission before its rendezvous with the Alesia and goes missing in the nebula. Now, the battle-hardened troopers are charged with a rescue mission that may lead to a much more sinister consequence than they ever could have.

The Blu-ray/UV Digital Copy combo will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Filmmaker commentary; The Making of Starship Troopers: Invasion - Genesis behind-the-scenes featurette; The Making of Starship Troopers: Invasion archive; Gag Reel; and a Blu-ray exclusive conceptual art gallery.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray will be $29.99.
