Promises to deliver an emotionally-charged look at the backstory of Master Chief.
Hollywood director David Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network) and acclaimed visual effects lead Time Miller (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) have teamed up to create the Halo 4 launch trailer.
Fincher is executive producer and Miller director.
In partnership with 343 Industries and agency twofifteenmccann, Fincher and Miller will help deliver an emotionally-charged look at the backstory of Master Chief.
Titled "Scanned" the trailer will provide a glimpse of the new threat Master Chief will encounter.
"I'm excited about the opportunity to direct the Halo 4 launch trailer in creative partnership with 343 Industries and David Fincher," said Miller. “"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."
Fincher stated: "I enjoy collaborating with Tim Miller, who is at the visual and technical forefront of hybridised live-action/CGI – not only pushing the boundary but defining it."
An extended two-minute trailer will make its premiere during the October 18 episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. It will be available on Halo Waypoint and the Xbox YouTube channel immediately following the broadcast debut (around 6am BST).
Halo 4 will be released worldwide November 6.
