Free screenings of the Halo series are taking place in four cities with questions and answers about the actors
If you live in Los Angeles, New York, Denver and Austin, you’ll be able to catch the highly anticipated Paramount+ series before the episodes go live.
If you’re like me and think everything looks better on a movie screen, I have some good news to share. Before Halo streaming its first episode March 24 on Paramount+, Collider is teaming up with the streamer and Alamo Drafthouse to bring the first two episodes of the anticipated series to theater screens for FREE! Plus, after the screening, we’ll be streaming an exclusive Q&A with the cast and producers.
Our exclusive event will take place the night of March 23 in Los Angeles, Denver, Austin and New York.
If for some reason you haven’t seen the trailer, the series – much like the games – follows a 26th century showdown between humanity and an intergalactic threat known as the Covenant. In an effort to win the war, Dr. Halsey (Natascha McElhone) creates genetically enhanced super-soldiers named the Spartans to battle the alien force. The series follows Master Chief Spartan John-117 (Pablo Schreiber), the commander of a Spartan unit. Although it draws heavily from the stories of the video game, the show takes place in its own timeline. Halo is produced by Showtime in partnership with 343 Industries, with Amblin Television, and will premiere exclusively on Paramount+. Jen Taylor, Bokeem Woodbine, Shabana Azmi, Natacha Culzac, olive gray, Yerin Ha, Bentley Kalu, kate kennedy, Charlie Murphy, Danny Sapani, Ryan McParland, Burn Gormanand Fiona O’Shaughnessy also complete the cast of the series. Steven Kane (The last boat) and Kyle Killen serve as showrunners.
So you’re probably wondering, “How can I get those free tickets?” My plan is to give away tickets starting this Friday morning, and I’ll be collecting names for a few days, then emailing the winners. The reason I advertise so early is that I always make sure the first people who ask for tickets get in. I’m giving everyone advance notice that the event is happening, so you can be ready on Friday.
On Friday, I will share more details about the event. Until there…
The war never ends.
