    I'm not sure if it's an exact reference to something but it seems to me to be an early motion picture and the audience thinks the train is going to hit them :)

    Back wayyy in the early days of film (think late 1910s), one of the earliest movies shown at theaters was one of a train pulling into a station.

    When this movie was first shown in theaters, the audience - unaccustomed to the concept of "moving picture" - freaked out and started running from the theater.

    Factories? Trains? Movies? Awesome. Even armies and UN appealed to me.
    Then they had to ruin half of the video by a S-L-O-W rocket followed by a 10-second picture of the Earth.

    Could it be....? Is it possible that some of those are previews of victory movies? Space ship, Domination, Diplomatic, all there.

    Wow, I never realized that was him! Now I want to go play Mass Effect, but not enough time to beat it again before BNW. :(

    I wonder if this is also the opening cinematic? Or maybe the opening will be a re-edit with the old voice actor?

    Loved it :) Space travel's always worth watching! (Also - 'MURICA!)

    I am bothered that it didn't actually show the game, but I admit the game is infinitely more fun to play than to watch.

    Let us all have a moment of silence for middle gas-mask man, come to an untimely death at the belly of a landship. He will be missed.

    No offense to Keith David and William Morgan Sheppard, but I miss Leonard Nimoy. I still hear his voice every time I read one of the tech quotes from Civ IV.
