Get pumped for Halo 4 with this live-action trailer

David Fincher-produced pre-launch trailer shows bits of Master Chief's past

I'm not the world's biggest first-person shooter fan by a longshot, but even I got excited for the Nov. 6 launch of Halo 4 (for the Xbox 360) after watching this trailer.

In this longer clip, produced by director David Fincher ("Fight Club", "The Social Network") and directed by Tim Miller, we see a captured Master Chief (hero of all the Halo games) being scanned by his captor, and then you see flashbacks of his life, including parts where he became the super-soldier that he is.

After watching this, I'm pretty sure we're going to eventually get a Halo movie from Hollywood.
