The new Halo 4 trailer, a collaboration between producer David Fincher (he of Se7en fame) and director, special effects maestro Tim Miller (who worked on the first two X-Men films, among others), is now available to watch.

Titled ‘Scanned’, the short aired overnight on US show ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’,  and shows the Chief in (futuristic) chains, being scanned – hence the title – by an unknown entity. The scan reveals details of John-117’s life, from his childhood and abduction at age 6, to Spartan modification, Mjolnir armour testing and finally to battling Promethean Knights on Requiem, leading right back to the present as he is caught.

That unknown entity that’s scanning the Chief? I’m going to go ahead and say it’s the Didact. That’s his icon at the end, after all.

See the short below, and let me know what you think in the comments.
