Okay, it is a bit unfair, Cara Delevingne appears only in the last bits of Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s live-action trailer, pretty badass. The trailer features Michael B. Jordan and Marshawn Lynch. The intense 1:40 high-action piece is titled "Seize Glory".
This is director Wayne McClammy's fourth go-round with Call of Duty and has continued to up the ante with each instalment. A majority of the live-action was shot practically, rather than with visual effects, to bring a heightened sense of grit and realism to the spot. Academy Award® winning director of photography Deon Bebe teamed up with renowned stunt coordinator Darrin Prescott to lend a cinematic feel to each moment. The film was shot over five days in an abandoned mall in Southern California, as the natural decay and destruction gave the shoot a more authentic feel.
The hero character of the film, Kevin, is played by Thomas Polk, a newcomer to the scene. The hero role reinforces the premise that "there's a soldier in all of us" - as the embodiment of the everyday gamer, who's found a way to be king in Call of Duty. Polk performed all of his own stunts, including wire work.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III deploys players into a future world, where bio-technology coupled with cybernetic enhancements has given rise to a new breed of Black Ops soldier. Black Ops III multiplayer offers the most engaging and rewarding multiplayer offering to date in the series, where players move fluidly through custom-built environments with finesse, all while maintaining complete control over their weapon at all times. The title also delivers its signature Zombies experience, this time taking it up a notch with “Shadows of Evil,” a 1940’s film-noir-inspired adventure that is the deepest Zombies experience to date in Call of Duty.
Developed for Next-Gen platforms by Treyarch, Call of Duty: Black Ops III launches worldwide 6th November. Activision will put its full support behind the game through an expansive TV, digital and outdoor advertising campaign that will run around the globe. Throughout the campaign, Activision has worked with LA / Amsterdam based agency 72andSunny on overall creative direction.
