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:

Cause Marvel sucks at making movies?

RAW_D on May 13, 2016


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

It looks like a live-action trailer for the next game!! Cool!!

Yeezy is too funny.

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.

tarek on May 12, 2016


Imagine for a second Assassin's creed with GOT dialogues. Wouldn't it be the Graal we were waiting for ? ;D

Oh, this is a winking face emoji.

tarek on May 12, 2016


I'm not an expert in emoji and sms language either. But I've mastered the ;D

tarek on May 13, 2016


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.

tarek on May 14, 2016


The poster is the most beautiful thing I've seen in my whole life.

No one expects the spanish inquisition.

Not the tone I was expecting but pretty awesome

Jon Odishaw on May 12, 2016


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!

David Diaz on May 12, 2016


Michael Fassbender in, i am in...

ari smulders on May 12, 2016


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...

ProjectionistHP on May 12, 2016


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

shiboleth on May 12, 2016


Could be cool. Terrible song choice. And I counted 2 superhero landings.

grimjob on May 12, 2016


Wow! Looks spot on. I'm down.

Cyberdine on May 13, 2016


Could this be the first video game movie that DOESN'T suck?! Maybeeeeeeeeeeeee??????????????????????

RAW_D on May 13, 2016


You mean you didn't like the awesome 90s Super Mario Bros live version?

Cyberdine on May 13, 2016


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....

RAW_D on May 13, 2016


I'm still skeptical, but I have high hopes for this. WoW will be a disaster though.

tarek on May 13, 2016


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.

RAW_D on May 13, 2016


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.

tarek on May 13, 2016


So you were hoping for a more darker tone and R-rated fare? Are you a fan of WoW too?

RAW_D on May 13, 2016


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...

tarek on May 13, 2016


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

RAW_D on May 13, 2016


My grandma can beat Ew Boll. ;D

tarek on May 13, 2016


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.

TK on May 14, 2016


Didn't really grab me, could be the poor choice in music or the concept as a whole.

Steven on May 13, 2016


I can't tell yet but I want it to be good SOOOOOOOO BAAAAAAAD!!!
