With the arrival of Halo 4 approaching fast, Microsoft has stepped up their marketing campaign and released a new live-action launch trailer from filmmaker David Fincher and visual effects artist Tim Miller. The trailer first premiered last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and has since found its way online.
Directed by Miller, who has maintained an impressive career in visual effects, the trailer is titled “Scanned” and provides a bit of insight into how Master Chief came to be at the hands of military scientists. Fincher, who is most well known for his directorial work on Se7en and The Social Network, first began his career doing music videos and has clearly fine-tuned his storytelling skills for short features.
Halo 4 arrives on November 6, 2012 and is now available for pre-order.
