Every year since 2011, Activision has been putting out a costly live-action trailer for the latest iteration of the “Call of Duty” game franchise, usually employing at least one big screen star and one major film director.
The Peter Berg-directed ‘Modern Warfare 3’ trailer showcased the surprisingly effective teaming of Sam Worthington and Jonah Hill. The Guy Ritchie-helmed ‘Black Ops 2’ trailer featured Omar Sy and Robert Downey Jr. amongst others.
This year it’s an ad entitled ‘Epic Night Out’ starring Megan Fox and some random unknowns in a Vegas-centric piece directed by James Mangold (“The Wolverine”). The game itself, “Call of Duty: Ghosts,” hits stores globally on November 5th.
