David Fincher, known for directing seminal films Se7en, Fight Club and The Social Network, is executive producing the launch trailer for Halo 4. Fincher’s known for his ominous visual style, and we’ll see if his directorial habits extend into the Halo 4 trailer, titled “Scanned.”
Sitting in the director’s chair, however, is no slouch: Tim Miller, known for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. If Scott Pilgrim is any indication, Miller knows how to treat videogame culture, and his stylish visual flair might make for some interesting translations of Fincher’s advice in the producer’s chair.
The trailer makes its debut October 18 during Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and will follow immediately on Halo Waypoint and Xbox’s YouTube channel.
