This one sounds original. Should be a big hit.

All I can say is that I like the idea. It really lends itself for sequels, if well received. Let's hope tha Aliens aren't bugs otherwise the comparisons will start. That's probably inevitable.

That is a great idea. Hope the comic and the movie live up to that fresh concept. Who said they're aren't new ideas?

Ok, I haven't read this, but who wants to bet that the aliens drafting humans have some sort of ulterior motive? Just a guess...

Original?! It sounds exactly like Starship Troopers...

Was "STARSHIP TROOPERS" missing a reel when I saw it? I don't remember aliens training Van Dien and co.

Oh jeez, you're right! It's a completely different concept then! I'm not saying that this doesn't sound like it will be a good movie, I was laughing about the "original" posts... Come on, even the picture shown looks like it's from Starship Troopers...

I feel you. It sounds good but doesn't "drip with profound creativity".

Did any of you bother to look up Drafted via a net search??? It appears that the aliens come to us with an offer we can't refuse...as they claim that they don't have time to negotiate...due to the fact that the invaders are coming soon to wipe us all out as they have done to many races, time and time again. And that's just the start...the real fun comes in this next fact: It seems the alien trainers don't believe in class and hierarchy systems, so all human beings...men, women, teenagers, the old, and children--the whole world in fact, are all drafted as soldiers and must fight for their lives and the survival of Earth. Just as long as you are old enough, or healthy enough to hold and use a weapon...you are drafted. What, you are rich you say???...An elite politician...the President even, there is no escape. So whether you are the Bush Twins, a bum on the corner, Bill Gates, the Pope...Paris Hilton, Britney Spears...or Oprah??? No excuses--you are drafted!!! Now...I have never heard of a concept as inventive and ballsy as that...and neither have any of you--although I must say, I'm thinking along the same lines as Fft5305: I too am guessing that the so-called good aliens have ulterior motives.
