Eye candy: Blur Studio’s new Halo 4 trailer

Monday, October 22nd, 2012 | Posted by Jim Thacker

Blur Studio has teamed up with long-term collaborator David Fincher for a slick part-live-action trailer for Halo 4, Microsoft’s upcoming reboot of its popular first-person shooters.

A lot of people got very excited about the teaser over the weekend – although, if we’re honest, we don’t think it’s the best work either half of the superstar tag team has done recently.

For sure, it’s an origin story for the franchise’s best-known character. And for sure, it’s got some nice effects. But it doesn’t seem to tell us anything very interesting about him as a person.

Perhaps we’re just old and cynical. Or perhaps Official Xbox 360 Magazine got it right when it described the trailer as “a breathtaking first glimpse of Master Chief’s bare feet”.
