This awesome vintage t-shirt is for action sci fi film Starship Troopers, which was originally released in 1997. The movie is based off of the 1959 Robert A. Heinlein novel of the same name, and it follows the story of a young recruit in a futuristic military unit while mankind is engaged in an interstellar war against an alien insectoid species called Arachnids. The movie starred Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer, Denise Richards, Jake Busey, and Neil Patrick Harris.

Starship Troopers was a massive box office bomb upon its release, although it did manage to garner an Academy Award Nomination for Best Visual Effects, as well as two Saturn Awards for costuming and visual effects. The film has since received more favorable reviews in retrospect than when it first premiered. Critics of the 2010s praised the movie as a self-aware satire of right-wing militarism.

Starship Troopers has spawned a number of sequels, although none of them were given the same theatrical release as the original. In 2011, movie producer Neal Moritz, who is best known for his work on the Fast & the Furious franchise, announced plans for a remake, but the plans never came to fruition, and the project drew criticism for supposedly adhering to the fascist and militaristic propaganda present in the original novel.
