New Featurette for 'Assassin's Creed' Examines the Creed Mythology
"The Assassins believe that above all else, mankind should have free will." 20th Century Fox has put out another new featurette for the Assassin's Creed movie, examining the "Creed Mythology" in an attempt to explain some of the context behind the story and what we're seeing. We know that Michael Fassbender plays Callum Lynch, an imprisoned man who is forced into an experimental sci-fi program that allows him to go back in time as his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. The story is actually about the Assassins vs the Templars, who have "been at war for centuries." Marion Cotillard seems to be on the other side, as one of the Templars, who want to control humanity. This actually looks damn good, I'm quite curious to see.
Here's the new "Creed Mythology" featurette for Justin Kurzel's Assassin's Creed, direct from YouTube:
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 starting December 21st. Excited for this?

I'm always skeptical when film makers try to bring video games to the big screen; however the irony here, and what puts me at ease is that Michael Fassbender chose to accept this role, and he only takes roles with great scripts or roles where he knows that he can make a great movie despite a terrible/mediocre script.

Visuals look great. But where is the witty dialogue? A serious hero is a boring hero.
