Call Of Duty®: Black Ops II Live-Action Trailer To Debut Tonight





















SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Call of Duty: Black Ops II is almost here.  With little more than two weeks to go for one of the most anticipated entertainment launches in history, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), today kicks things into high gear with the release of the new Call of Duty: Black Ops II live-action trailer helmed by visionary director Guy Ritchie and featuring Robert Downey Jr.  The explosive :60 second high-octane piece, titled "Surprise," will  be unveiled on network television in the U.S. tonight on Monday Night Football and will rollout worldwide across high-profile telecasts including elite European football matches.   

Reflecting the global phenomenon that is Call of Duty®, a franchise which appeals to both mass and enthusiast audiences, several additional celebrity cameos round out the cast.  Omar Sy, one of France's top comedic actors, and a huge Call of Duty fan in his own right, makes an appearance, and core gaming fans will recognize Internet phenoms FPSRussia as well as iJustine.

To support the launch blitz, Activision teamed up with Bad Robot Interactive to release a Call of Duty takeover to Bad Robot's mega-hit Action Movie FX app, which is a free download available now on iPhone and iPad.  The app enables fans to film real world environments with their phones, only to bring mayhem to them using Call of Duty: Black Ops II near-future weaponry.  Additionally, fans can use the scan function in the app, to unlock and unleash exclusive new weapons for use in the app from the upcoming game.

"With Call of Duty we are re-writing the rule-book of how games are marketed.  This is more than a product launch, it's become a cultural event.  And, what Treyarch has created this year with Call of Duty: Black Ops II is nothing short of the most innovative Call of Duty title yet," said Tim Ellis, CMO, Activision Publishing.  "So our mission is to meet this creativity with the most dynamic and far-reaching launch campaign we've ever done.  Everything we do is geared toward reaching our fans – the best community in the world – to celebrate with them the launch this November 13 th."

This year, more than 15,000 retail outlets worldwide are scheduled to open their doors at midnight on Tuesday, November 13.  Additionally, Activision will support the game through a global outdoor advertising campaign that will run in eight cities and across more than 450 media placements around the world with support from the media agencies OMD and MEC, respectively.
