Its finally here! The trailer for the movie based on the popular video franchise that had you believe man can drop into a bale of hay from a height of 50 feet and not break his back.
The two-minute trailer debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night (serious…how does he get all these trailer releases on his show?) and sets up the plot and tone of the much anticipated video game movie. Michael Fassbender plays the descendant of the film’s titular assassin, a man named Desmond who’s been captured by a shady organization with the goal of extracting his ancestors’ memories. The trailer shows a change back and forth between the present day and medieval Spain during the Spanish Inquisition. Check Out the trailer below! I have to say, its pretty awesome!
The film is set for a December 21 release date. And starring alongside Fassbender is Marion Cotillard, and Jeremy Irons with Justin Kurzel (Macbeth) in the directors chair.
I have to admit that I have never played an “Assassin’s Creed” game before. However I know that the games range in times between Renaissance Italy, Colonial America, and even on the seas along with Black Beard the pirate. So its pretty safe to assume that if this becomes a smash hit then there is plenty to work with for sequels.
But only time will tell. The movie is coming out just a week after the monster of a film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Hopefully it will be able to hold its own during that release. But until that date comes, check out that trailer above if you haven’t already, and then check out the poster below that was release with the trailer.
