Iron Man actor featured in new television ad directed by Sherlock Holmes captain Guy Ritchie for Treyarch's upcoming Call of Duty.
Iron Man meets Call of Duty in a new live-action advertisement for Treyarch's Black Ops II. Activision released a new sixty-second spot for the game today titled "Surprise" (below), which was directed by Guy Ritchie and features Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man, U.S. Marshals).
The advertisement will debut on network television tonight during Monday Night Football in the United States and across the world during "high-profile" European football matches. It also features French actor Omar Sy, as well as the Internet-famous FPSRussia and iJustine.
Ritchie has directed a number of films, including 2000's Snatch and 2009's Sherlock Holmes. Additionally, Ritchie is not the only Hollywood figure Activision has sought the help of for its newest Call of Duty game. The Black Ops II title track was composed by Academy Award-winning musician Trent Reznor.
Further, Ritchie is not the first Hollywood director to helm a trailer for one of this fall's big-name games. Fight Club and The Social Network director David Fincher led production on Halo 4's launch trailer.
Black Ops II is due out across the world November 13 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. PlayStation Vita game Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is due out also on that date, with a Wii U version following as a launch title for Nintendo's new console on November 18.
Wow instead of spending all sorts of money on advertising, why don't they do something revolutionary for the series and make a single player campaign longer than 5 hours
Did you guys all miss the part where GTA 5 is coming out early next year and ur wasting ur time with this shit?! :/
The majority of new games suck shlong, Ive been playing more old games in the last 3 years than anything new, Do yourself and the industry a favour, pick up something old, cheap and 1000 better than this shite, you will not be disappoint!
The message at the end makes it seem like a commercial to make people join the military, which is kind of scary when you consider how CoD has contributed to a raise in new people joining the military.
@fillup0 the funny thing is youre right. They see this and they want to be in the fight. A dumb, unwise, immature "friend" of mine got into the army a few years ago. My father was also in the army and tried to give him as much advice he could, but he didnt listen. He failed Ranger school. Went AWOL after a deployment to Iraq, got kicked out of the army for being such an ass and now hes living in my cousin's grandma's house whom he lives off of. Oh by the way, Hes 19, has two kids, no job...and he'd rather spend money on 120 dollar jeans and the ne Call of Duty....then on formula or diapers for his newborn. POS...anyay sorry for that little rant. My point is you are right, it DOES seem that the military is attracting anyone they can get in there with this type of stuff.
I think they're focusing too much on trying to make CoD look like a game that "cool kids play" than actually making a good game to play.
I used to be a big fan of CoD back when it first came out in 2003, but I just hate how they've handled this franchise.
also whats the point in showing vehicles in the CMs when u cant use them? "oh cool looking tank", "its just for display not for sale"
Didn't the commercial for MW3 have Jonah Hill and Sam Worthington?
Nice to see the host of PSRUSSIA as well.
As long as there are no tubes (hardcore), no vests and no sit rep pro...they could have carrot top flying a blimp filled with asian clowns for all i care. lets not have another MW3...
is there like a prerequisit in game commercials having a certain amount of celebrities for you? Whats the acceptable number here? You just like to winge don't ya? ;)
what makes Black Cops zombies so great anyways? there only like a million other zombie killers out there.
and guess what, I still couldnt give a flying fuck <3 Do what you like, troll away! I laugh at trolls, I makes me feel awesome when people that troll get all insulted and feel the need to reply <3 <3 <3
@ChillingSky Says the guy insulting haters.
I insult haters all the time, scum of the gaming world (or any online forum really), nothing good to say, just sad pathetic individuals with no life who hate on things to make their pathetic existance seem worth while. If you offended by what I said then guess what, I couldn't give a fuck and I am pleased you are offended :)
love the commercial but not getting the game. heck to be honest i love all the cod ads, but that because they put more effort in the ads than the games.
Blah blah blah. Another celebrity endorsement for Black Ops. People aren't still influenced by this shit are they?
@jhonMalcovich He's the badass who did a real 360 noscope.
@xDeadMarchx Agree. He doesn´t look russian at all. His accent is forced and not natural. His gestures are not russian rather than american kid´s ones. Besides he lives in America.
Maybe his grand parents were Russians, and now he pretends to be Russian too.
he's a fraud. He's not even Russian.... just an American kid with a lucky weapons connection. You telling me you bought his phony accent? tool
@jhonMalcovich He is a guy who makes videos of him using like kool weapons, look it up on youtube.
@jhonMalcovich He's a YouTube personality.
