'Lone Survivor' Team Returns With 'Call of Duty' Spot



Lone Survivor director Peter Berg and star Taylor Kitsch (who played Lt. Michael Murphy in the film) have teamed up again for a new commercial that shows off the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which launches next week for PC, both XBoxes and both PlayStations.

You get a first person view as Kitsch guides you through a Lagos, Nigeria war zone in 2059. The commercial represents yet another episode in Berg and Kitsch's professional relationship. The actor got his big break starring in Berg's Friday Night Lights and they both bravely soldiered together through the Battleship movie experience a couple of years back.

The commercial tries to focus on the new twists that are supposed to keep the game fresh. In an interview with Variety, Berg said, "“We wanted to replicate what you’ll see when you play it. It was important to Activision that the game was accurate and not promising something that it isn’t. We didn’t want to overpromise what the game could deliver. Everything we designed, we designed with the game guys there."


Emily Ratajkowski, who just appeared in Gone Girl and got famous after getting everyone's attention in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video last year, shows up in the commercial as a mirage who turns out to be a goat.
