Halo 4 gets Hollywood directed launch trailer

Microsoft and 343 announced that Hollywood director David Fincher and Tim Miller will be lending their talents to the official Halo 4 launch trailer which is expected to air on the 18th October, ahead of the game’s November 6th worldwide release.

They both have a long list of credits including: “Fight Club,” “The Social Network,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World”. The trailer will take a focused look at the series’ iconic hero Master Chief.

The extended two-minute trailer will make its world premiere during the 18th October episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” (airs weeknights on NBC at 11:35pm CT) before the launch of “Halo 4” on 6th November.  It will be available on Halo Waypoint and the Xbox YouTube channel immediately following the broadcast debut (around 6am BST).

 Titled “Scanned,” the trailer is an action-packed cinematic production that offers a captivating look at the backstory of Master Chief, and provides a glimpse of the new threat he will encounter in “Halo 4.” Filmed in Prague, “Scanned” continues the franchise’s tradition of expanding the universe through award-winning live-action stories, adding to the lore and anticipation for the next chapter in the landmark franchise that has sold more than 43 million game copies worldwide and generated more than $3 billion in franchise sales.
