Paul Verhoeven reteams with his ROBOCOP writers to bring us STARSHIP TROOPERS, the long-awaited sci-fi epic. The film stars relative unknowns, along with Michael Ironside and Neil Patrick Harris in this futuristic sci-fi extravanganza about a massive war between humans and some nasty bug aliens.

The coverage of STARSHIP TROOPERS is the largest of any other movie on the VFX HQ to date:

  • who - takes a look at the companies and individuals behind the effects

  • review - behind the scenes of the movie's visual effects, as told by the artists and supervisors

  • how - a discussion with some of the movie's primary visual effects artists

  • pics - three sections of photos, bugs, space and more
