Robert Downey Jr. In CoD Black Ops 2 Ad
As directed by Guy Ritchie...

Whatever Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 can do, Call Of Duty: Black Ops II can do better. Forget Sam Worthington and Jonah Hill: Black Ops II has Robert Downey Jr. on board, and he's flying a fighter jet to the tune of AC/DC's Back In Black.

Brought to your computer monitors by RDJ's Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie, this 60 second display of Black Ops II's additional futuristic firepower from high-tech drones to walking ED-209-a-likes is called 'Surprise', and it's unsuprisingly full of surprises.

As well as movie in-jokes wait for the obligatory Evil Dead II reference there are even web favourites such as YouTube's FPSRussia, also known as the Russian guy with the flying, machine-gunning death bringers who always wears a 'TACITUS' T-shirt.

Take a look at it above, and for more details on the upcoming game release (out on November 13), head to Empire's CoD masterclass site here.

P.S. There's now a behind the scenes video on the ad, featuring interviews with Guy Ritchie himself and FPS Russia - who's billed as a "professional Russian" - which you can check out below.
