Robert Downey Jr. in new Black Ops II TV spot

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.

Cliff Bleszinski offers to help ‘fix’ Resident Evil

Former Gears of War designer says he wants to aid Capcom in addressing unspecified issues with long-running franchise.

 

Former Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski has offered to help Capcom “fix” the Resident Evil franchise.


“Hey, Capcom. Call me,” he said over Twitter. “We can fix Resident Evil. Together.”

Bleszinski did not go into any further detail regarding why he believes the Resident Evil franchise would need fixing. However, it is likely he is referring to the franchise’s latest effort, Resident Evil 6, which shipped this month behind very mixed reviews.

Bleszinski left Epic Games after 20 years with the company earlier this month. At the time, he said it was “time for a much needed break” before embarking on the “next stage” of his career.

It is not clear where Bleszinski is headed, though his Twitter feed of late has led to much speculation. Since leaving Epic Games, Bleszinski has visited the offices of Activision, Zynga, Double Fine, and Electronic Arts. He has also met with God of War and Twisted Metal designer David Jaffe.
