Metal Gear Solid Movie Director Made an Awesome Live-Action Destiny 2 Trailer

Jordan Vogt-Roberts finished Kong: Skull Island and took on Destiny 2.

You might know Jordan Vogt-Roberts as the director behind the upcoming Metal Gear Solid after successfully directing Kong: Skull Island. However, in between jobs he apparently took on a small gig with Bungie to direct the new live-action Destiny 2 trailer. It's pretty cool, you should check it out below.

The live-action trailer begins with a voiceover from Cayde-6 (voiced by Nathan Fillion) about all the things Gaul and his Red Legion have blown up since taking over, including puppies. That's enough of a motive to send a trio of Guardians to go and fight the Red Legion, all to the tune of the Beastie Boys' classic, "Sabotage".

Talking to Rolling Stone, Vogt-Roberts revealed that he was into the idea of setting up a shoot in his hometown of Detroit with real actors. "Games are such a huge part of my influences and upbringing. I'm deeply interested in the relationship between film and video games. How we portray that stuff. How we commit to what makes games great."

You might recall a story that reportedly revealed how Vogt-Roberts searched for the screenwriter for his upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie by auditioning them with an obstacle course of Metal Gear games he made and had writers try out. So it makes sense that Vogt-Roberts would jump at a chance to direct a live-action Destiny 2 trailer. He even says how hard he tried to get the melee action of his actors to match those in the game.

Destiny 2 is coming out next week (September 5) for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release following on October 24. You can read our extended preview of one of Destiny 2's main worlds here.
