Megan Fox Appears in ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Live-Action Trailer [Video]

The new Call of Duty: Ghosts trailer ‘Epic Night Out’ features a memorable trip to Vegas and an appearance by Megan Fox.

Activision is certainly getting its money’s worth when it comes to the “Call of Duty” franchise, well-known for its epic live action commercials.  It has always been successful in making the military game appeal to a broad audience beyond just hardcore gamers.

To help achieve that, the videogame publisher has released a live action trailer, often featuring bold-faced names like Robert Downey Jr., Jonah Hill, Sam Worthington and foreign stars like Omar Sy in over-the-top action sequences and settings directed by helmers like Guy Ritchie, writes the Variety.

Titled Epic Night Out, the high-concept, big-budget videogame trailer for “Call of Duty: Ghosts” is directed by “The Wolverine’s” James Mangold and features Megan Fox as a female soldier that four players are lucky to come across.

The trailer is part of the “There’s a soldier in all of us” campaign and promotes the four-player mode of the first-person shooter while flaunting the realistic gameplay.

The ad appears to be a sort of mashup between “The Hangover” and “Call of Duty: Ghosts” as it shows four friends running and jumping and diving through rubble that used to be Las Vegas.

In the trailer, four friends drive a vintage convertible through the ruins of Las Vegas, armed to the teeth with semi-automatic rifles as Frank Sinatra’s I’m Gonna Live Till I Die plays in the background. Megan Fox makes her cameo around the middle of the video, first running a high powered machine gun, and then saving one of the friends as she blasts a drone out of the sky.

“The idea of camaraderie and making this the ultimate boys’ night out led us to ‘Epic Night Out,’” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.

The ad throws in some decent comedy at this point as a member of the group stops to try and get the “Transformers” star’s phone number before being quickly hustled away to more battle.

“Hey, how are you doing?” says one of the men as he hits on Fox. She pushes him out of the way and fires at a small Maxis Drone as it looms above the unsuspecting potential victim. “Great. Thanks for asking,” Fox replies.

Fox has often shared her love of video games, in particular “Halo: Reach.” She’s shared in the past that she’s gotten some heat from fellow players online.

“I have ‘Halo: Reach,’ but I am playing online. I don’t really play in story mode anymore,” she told Collider in 2011. “[Xbox Live players] have no idea. They make fun of my gamer tag too because it is funny. And they are all a bunch of guys and it is clear that I am a girl so they make fun of my name, and they have no idea they are making fun of me,” she added.

The video is just one in a recent string live-action trailers featuring high-caliber Hollywood stars.  The ad premieres on television Saturday night during the Miami vs. Florida State college football game on ABC and on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

“Call of Duty: Ghosts” comes out on November 5 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC, and as a launch title for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
