All that’s missing are Jägerbombs and misogyny. Guy Ritchie became the favorite filmmaker of fratboys everywhere when he made Lock Stock and Snatch. Between pounding shots and subjugating women, 20 year old collegiate males the world over high-fived over Brad Pitt’s unintelligble accent and then played some rounds of Call of Duty, the record-shattering military shooter that single-handedly gobbled up the profits of an entire industry in 2010. It’s only natural, given the matching demographic, that Treyarch would bring on the man to direct a live-action trailer for the second iteration in the Black Ops franchise, but to cap it all off, you’ll spot RDJ in the mix as well:
The trailer is only a minute long but manages to squeeze in a lot of information if you’re paying attention. In a simulated single shot, the camera bounces from one recognizable face to another (YouTube stars iJustine and FPSrussia make appearances too) but the trailer tries to focus the insane arsenal of gadgets at your disposal in Cod Blops 2. The trailer closes on a swarm of zombies, hinting at the added emphasize to the secondary zombie mode that became an instant fan favorite in World at War, and was expanded even further in the last game.
The first Black Ops crammed so much content onto disc that it was nearly impossible to argue against its value. A globe-trotting popcorn movie campaign, the most popular multiplayer platform in console gaming and extras and minigames pouring out of every nook and cranny made it a tantalizing offer. Blops 2 looks to be offering a similar experience this time around, but they’ve rebuilt the multiplayer from ground up, promised a much beefier single-player experience and a much much bigger zombie mode than ever before. The new features of Black Ops 2 are all explored in Game Trailers’ latest episodes of Bonus Round, if you haven’t heard about them yet.
