A bright-eyed ghoul is still wearing his trilby in this Zombies mode reveal trailer for the incoming Call of Duty: Black Ops III, and that’s not even the coolest thing that’s been crammed into its 2 1/2 minute-long running-time. No, that honor belongs to every scene that features the voice or likeness of Ron Perlman. It’s common knowledge at this point that that man makes everything better. He’s also the only guy who could get away with wearing these.
In the “Shadows of Evil” campaign, a team of four post-apocalyptic badasses must team up in order to bring down the mysterious Shadow Man and rid the 1940s of its awesome zombie problem.
Treyarch been mostly consistent in enlisting actors who I can easily believe to be capable of mowing down hordes of the walking dead, if they needed to.
Exploring the art of zombie whoopassery this time around is Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park), Ron Perlman (Hellboy) — two of my personal heroes — Heather Graham (The Hangover 1-3), Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager).
Call of Duty: Black Ops III arrives November 6 on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
