What do actors Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, Ron Perlman, and Jeff Goldblum have in common? They all star in the prologue for Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s Zombies mode.
While the main game is focused on the future where cybernetics and biotechnology is used to augment soldiers, zombies mode travels back to the past. Sporting a 1940s film noir setting, the prologue titled ‘Shadows of Evil’ harkens back to a time of femme fatales, mustached corrupt cops, cheating boxers, and knife throwing magicians.
All four protagonists featured in the video have blood on their hands and must seek redemption through a mysterious figure known as Shadow Man.
They have done a really good job in nailing the likeness of the actors, particularly McDonough and Goldblum. It is certainly an eclectic group of actors and a unique setting for this year’s version of zombies mode.
