Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 writer talks about 'big event movie' approach

The latest trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 goes behind the scenes on the game. In the video, writer David Goyer (The Dark Knight Rises) and composer Trent Reznor, talk about their involvement with the upcoming shooter.

"We were approaching it in some ways as a big event movie," said Goyer. "Even though its a first-person shooter, it's got to be sophisticated, It's got to be funny, it's got to be challenging and have twists and turns."

"In the case of Black Ops, I would argue that this story is better than most movies that are being made," Goyer claims. (So, better than That's My Boy, hopefully?)

Goyer created the character of Raul Menendez, the new villain in the game. To see him in all his evil glory (beyond the video), you'll have to wait until the game is released on November 13 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
