Normally we don't cover anything from the realm of video games unless it happens to cross over into the film world. Whether it's video game adaptations like Assassin's Creed with Michael Fassbender or Splinter Cell with Tom Hardy, we're on top of those stories. Every now and then we post live-action trailers for new video games because they're directed by a known filmmaker. But this time, we're focusing on the first trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare because it stars Kevin Spacey. And we don't mean that he just lends his voice to the film. The likeness of Kevin Spacey is also used as what appears to be a villain. Watch!
Here's the awesome trailer for Activision's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare from YouTube:
The trailer is directed by the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare game director Glen Schofield, but what's also fantastic is who's producing the game. We can exclusively reveal that The Social Network and Captain Phillips producer Dana Brunetti is teaming with Activision to produce the game (he also has the anticipated adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey on his plate for Valentine's Day 2015). Brunetti told us, "We've been working on this deal for a while and think it's a game changer for the game industry." We'll just assume that no pun was intended, and we're incredibly excited to see this kind of filmmaking talent thrown behind a video game like this. Does this mean a Call of Duty movie might not be far behind? Cool stuff?
