The launch trailer for Halo 4 is to be produced by Fight Club director David Fincher, and directed by the visual effects lead of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Tim Miller, Microsoft today announce.
Titled "Scanned," the extended two-minute trailer is set to make its world debut during Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on October 18th on NBC, prior to the launch of the game on November 6th. It will also be available from Halo Waypoint and the Xbox YouTube channel immediately following the broadcast.
"I'm excited about the opportunity to direct the Halo 4 launch trailer in creative partnership with 343 Industries and David Fincher, said Miller, who previously worked with Fincher to create the title sequence of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. "Halo is one of the most iconic sci-fi universes, with a depth that allows for amazingly cinematic and emotionally riveting stories. The chance to tell a story that explores never-before-seen facets of Master Chief's journey is an honor. Our goal is to deliver a blockbuster, Hollywood-quality trailer that raises the bar for the award-winning legacy of live-action 'Halo storytelling and gets fans stoked for the return of Master Chief."
"Scanned" will offer a look at Master Chief's backstory, as well as a look at the threats he encounters in Halo 4. The trailer was filmed in Prague.
