David Fincher Produces Halo Launch Trailer

David Fincher has an impressive resume. The Hollywood director has worked on films like Fight Club, The Social Network, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Fincher can now add Halo commercial to his resume. But he probably doesn't need to.

Admittedly this would be more interesting if Fincher was actually directing the trailer (like he did for the memorable Gears of War "Mad World" commercial), but he's producing short, entitled Scanned, which covers Master Chief's backstory and gives a glimpse of the new threat he will encounter in Halo 4. Visual effects lead Tim Miller (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) has also been working on the trailer.

The extended two-minute trailer premieres during the Oct. 18 episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC at 12:35am ET/11:35pm CT), but we're sure it will also be available online shortly afterwords.
