David Fincher’s ‘Halo 4′ Trailer Explains Master Chief’s Backstory

David Fincher is getting some serious love from the video game community following the launch of his epic “Halo 4″ trailer, “Scanned,” which debuted last night on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

Longtime fans of the “Halo” franchise will have a lot more to chew on here than newcomers. This trailer details the backstory of Master Chief, whose actual name is John. We see everything from his childhood on Eridanus II to him being kidnapped in the middle of the night and being swapped with a cheap clone to the augmentation surgery that results in him having superhuman strength and speed. The trailer then ends with Chief facing off against the new, “ancient” enemies, known as the Prometheans, that fans will meet in “Halo 4.”
