Jonah Hill, Sam Worthington Star in This Live Action Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Ad

The official live-action trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 isn't supposed to hit until Sunday. But it's started popping up on website ads late Friday night so we grabbed a copy.

In it we see Jonah Hill of Superbad fame and is that Sam Worthington of Avatar fame kicking ass as video game soldiers in the upcoming Activision shooter. Apparently there is still a solider in all of us.

I'm thinking there's a longer version of this ad set to run on Sunday somewhere, either the site or maybe on TV. I mean AC/DC's Shoot To Thrill barely gets rolling in this version. Also, the previews for this ad seem to hint that there might be a bit more... I don't know, story arc, to the full ad.

So yes, this is sort of an ad for an ad. Which is kinda like a count down for a count down, which I also love.

Update: The full-length version arrived yesterday, containing everything in the 30 second early-bird trailer, and more. It's been swapped in above.

DISCUSSION

This ad embodies everything I hate about what this series has turned into. Good thing I still own and play CoD4 because it gives me hope that eventually a worthy successor will one day show everyone how its done then drop the mic and walk out of the room ( That hope lies in Respawn Entertainment ).
