The launch trailer for the highly anticipated video game sequel Halo 4 has been released. The clip was produced by David Fincher and directed by visual effects vet Tim Miller—the guy responsible for that fantastic opening credits sequence in Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The Halo 4 trailer is a pretty impressive piece of work, showing off some great effects and intriguing visual cues. The piece briefly explores the backstory of Master Chief and provides a glimpse of the new threat he/gamers will face in Halo 4.
This doesn’t mark the end of the collaboration between Miller and Fincher, as Miller is also set to co-direct the Fincher-produced CG animated adaptation of The Goon. Fincher, Miller, and co-director Jeff Fowler recently launched a kickstarter campaign for the project accompanied by a humorous video from the trio. For now, hit the jump to check out the latest Miller/Fincher creation by way of the launch trailer for Halo 4. The game hits stores on November 6th, at which point it will make an insane amount of money.
