Tough Guy Cinema presents a 35mm screening of STARSHIP TROOPERS This Saturday!!

Join the Mobile Infantry and save the Galaxy. Service guarantees citizenship. Would you like to know more?

Giant bugs, space flights, awesome machine guns, and co-ed showers. Paul Verhoeven and Ed Neumeier may have had their masterstroke with the perfect satiric balance of Robocop, but for me, STARSHIP TROOPERS lives right alongside side Robo on my all-time favorite action movies.

Johnny Rico was just your average ordinary twenty-something-looking high school kid, until BUGS attacked his hometown of Buenos Aires. Fired up for revenge, Johnny and his pals join the Federation Army to fight back because the only good bug...is a DEAD BUG. Would you like to know more?

Tough Guy Cinema is celebrating this modern classic with a 35mm screening followed by a LIVE SKYPE session with one of the coolest all-around bad ass screen writers alive, Ed Neumeier.  In case you weren't paying attention, he wrote ROBOCOP AND STARSHIP TROOPERS. So bring your hate of bugs and your curious questions because we're recruiting YOU to the Federated Army of Tough Guys.

Young people all over are joining the fight for the future. Are you doing your part? (Greg MacLennan)
