Aliens: Colonial Marines Trailer Brings the Pep Talk

Published 5 years ago by Jane Douglas

Listen up, marines

The best thing about being a Colonial Marine is the steady flow of macho hooahs and military cheerleading from your commanding officer. There's plenty of both in this new Aliens: Colonial Marines trailer, with motivational gems you might use for invigorating your doomed Colonial Marine platoon/sales team:

10. Let's get control of this damn situation!

9. Get some!

8. You don't die unless I give you a direct order.

7. We don't leave marines* behind!

6. Don't mess with marines*!

5. If it moves, kill it.

4. If it's not moving, kill it again.

3. You've each got more firepower than an army platoon, so use it - all of it.

2. Anybody in their right mind would hop the next transport home, but you're not in your right mind. You're in the Corp!

1. We're fighting for the title of baddest motherf**ckers in the galaxy. That's a battle I intend to win!
