Announced today was the upcoming Halo 4 launch trailer. Produced by David Fincher (“Fight Club,” “The Social Network,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) and directed by acclaimed visual effects lead Tim Miller (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), the trailer will launch on October 18.
The extended two-minute trailer will premiere during Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC at 11:35pm CT. Immediately after the show it will be available on Halo Waypoint and their official YouTube channel.
Titled “Scanned,” the trailer gives us a look at Master Chief’s backstory and provides a glimpse of what he will be facing in Halo 4.
“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,” said Miller.
“. . .We think fans are going to be blown away when they see the final piece,” commented 343 Industries’ franchise development director Frank O’Connor.
See you on October 18 when the trailer premieres.
