Assassin's Creed Movie Trailer

"We work in the dark to serve the light. We are assassins." Fox has debuted the first trailer for Justin Kurzel's big screen take on the video game series Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender as the main character. Fassbender plays Callum Lynch, and as you'll see in this trailer, they use some sort of technology to send him back in time as his ancestor Aguilar. The cast includes Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Callum Turner; plus Ariane Labed, who looks totally badass. So far I'm actually impressed, this looks solid - the action looks good, the story seems intriguing, the performances look impressive, I'm hooked. Might be worth it after all. Fire this up and enjoy.

Here's the first official trailer for Justin Kurzel's Assassin's Creed movie, direct from Fox's Facebook:

Assassin's Creed Poster

Assassin's Creed, created by Patrice Desilets & Jade Raymond back in 2007, is an award winning historical fiction action-adventure open world stealth video game series that as of 2012 consists of five main games. The focus is on a protagonist character, an assassin, who usually wears a hooded outfit, which became the focus of their latest marketing campaign for AC: Revelations. The movie based on Assassin's Creed is being directed by Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel, of The Snowtown Murders and Macbeth previously. The screenplay has credits for Bill Collage, Adam Cooper and Michael Lesslie. It was filmed around Malta. 20th Century Fox will release Assassin's Creed in theaters everywhere this December 21st.

    Good. Plus: No Marvel involved.
    • RAW_D
      Cause Marvel sucks at making movies?
      • naundob
        Sucks? No, on the contrary: Marvel suckseeds at making movies. But I think I'm a little bit tired of the sheer mass of rather repetitive super hero flicks they throwing at us. Iron Man, America Man, Hammer Man ... I really love you, guys, just gimme a break.
        • Generic stories + Generic villains = Duh
  • DAVIDPD
    It looks like a live-action trailer for the next game!! Cool!!
  • Josh W
    I can get behind this.
  • Nielsen700
    I AM A GOD.
  • Who chose to put this horrible music in this trailer? He should be flayed b Ramsay. This movie deserves an epic music. So far, this looks great. Now, I want to see a trailer with great dialogues.
    • Bo
      Great dialogue? In this, Tarek? Surely you jest...lol...
      • Imagine for a second Assassin's creed with GOT dialogues. Wouldn't it be the Graal we were waiting for ? ;D
        • Bo
          It ain't gonna happen. I attempted to google your ;D to find out what it meant and came up with a blank. Wanna tell me?
          • Oh, this is a winking face emoji.
          • Bo
            Ah, I see. Thank you, kind Sir! I confess to being computer language illiterate!
          • I'm not an expert in emoji and sms language either. But I've mastered the ;D
          • Bo
            I can tell...lol...the only thing I've mastered is lol...as I really like to laugh...it feels great...Cheers!

          Nope sorry not going to happen unfortunately. The screenplay is written by the same guys who did Allegiant, Transporter Refuelled and Exodus: Gods and Kings. Just terrible. I am however looking forward to the cool looking cinematography and kick ass action.
          • If so, then it will be an upgraded Prince of Persia. Which is a shame. I don't want to see a "Marvelized" Assassin's Creed.
  • capitandelespacio
    The poster is the most beautiful thing I've seen in my whole life.
  • capitandelespacio
    No one expects the spanish inquisition.
  • Jon Odishaw
    Not the tone I was expecting but pretty awesome
  • David Diaz
    That was just so good. Had a smile on face the whole time. The leap of faith at the end looks incredible. I can't wait!
  • Michael Fassbender in, i am in...
  • ProjectionistHP
    Well that song suckt. But rest of the trailer actually surpassed all my expectitions. This might actually me good. And a new setting that has'nt been in the games will propably be a plus...
  • Bo
    Not my cup of tea, for sure. Saddened by having to watch one of my favorite actresses, Marion Cotillard, attempt to deliver such a silly line as, "You've been dead for 500 years" and not being able to pull it off. As good as she is, she just couldn't make it sound credible. Then again, who could? I shall erase this memory from my mind and avoid watching any of this nonsense in the future.
  • shiboleth
    I never played the game and it is very much probable that I never will. in that, I am biased. Considering that money-grab motive behind this is a concept that gives me hard time realizing how is this shallow execution of an idea possible
  • grimjob
    Could be cool. Terrible song choice. And I counted 2 superhero landings.
  • Cyberdine
    Wow! Looks spot on. I'm down.
  • RAW_D
    Could this be the first video game movie that DOESN'T suck?! Maybeeeeeeeeeeeee??????????????????????
    • Cyberdine
      You mean you didn't like the awesome 90s Super Mario Bros live version?
      • RAW_D
        Ha! I tried...I just couldn't get through the entire thing. Bob Hoskins will always be the movie version of Mario to me though....
    • I'm still skeptical, but I have high hopes for this. WoW will be a disaster though.
      • RAW_D
        You should check out the interviews with the WoW director Duncan Jones regarding his passion for WoW. I know it's a CGI-fest per the trailers, but I'm hoping Jones consideration for the franchise carries through into the film. Initially I wasn't sold with the first couple of trailers, but the latest trailer I saw prior to B v. S in 3D, changed my tune. It still could be just a CGI crapfest, but...I've got a glimmer of hope now.
        • I'm sure the guy is very passionate about the project. But so far, the look is too polished. It's too kid-friendly. The plot also sounds deja vu. The problem with these franchises is studios interference. They impose the kiddie tone because the Merchandising train is already moving.
          • RAW_D
            So you were hoping for a more darker tone and R-rated fare? Are you a fan of WoW too?
          • I've never played WoW, but I am quite familiar with the universe though. R-Rating isn't a requirement. Just something smartly written a la Lord of the Rings. When I see shining costumes and sets, it drags me out of the movie. The universe depicted in these trailers looks to bright and has a "brand new" mark all over it. No scratches, no dirt, no imperfection on the costumes or sets...
          • RAW_D
            Gotcha. Yeah, I'm doubtful WoW will be LOTR worthy, but maybe it'll be better than the D&D movies by Uwe Boll? lol
          • My grandma can beat Ew Boll. ;D
          • TK
            It's actually in keeping with the style that Blizzard have created for Warcraft and this has nothing really to do with WoW. It's going back to the very beginning of the Warcraft games. Blizzard were very specific in keeping to the tone of that universe given the fact that it's fanbase already numbers in the millions.
  • Steven
    Didn't really grab me, could be the poor choice in music or the concept as a whole.
  • BNN667
    I can't tell yet but I want it to be good SOOOOOOOO BAAAAAAAD!!!
  • T. Hakeem
    Love that poster... trailer was good (imo), colour me intrigued!
