Assassin’s Creed Movie Trailer

The Assassin’s Creed movie trailer debuted yesterday on Kimmel of all places. Let’s take a look.

My first thought (and Graev’s) is that it doesn’t look nearly as bad as I thought it would. Seriously, I wasn’t expecting much at all. This piques my interest significantly more than I initially expected. The Kanye track was ridiculous though, and whoever forced that noise into the trailer for a game’s franchise with such a rich musical legacy should be ashamed.

The movie is taking quite a bit of liberty with the story. The “real world” part of Assassin’s Creed has always been polarizing; You either love it or you hate it, and I happen to find it fascinating. AC games have always been confusing to the point of needing a Wiki to truly understand wtf is going on, but it’s gloriously complex. I hope it’s just the trailer conveying an odd Templar/Animus interpretation and that they stayed true to the story.

I can at least look forward to seeing it now.

  • It’s too contrived. Too much of a suspension of disbelief. There was a minute there where I thought it looked cool, and then thought silly and a waste of time. It might go right to DVD cause I’m sorta in the target demographic and was like … Really?
