The First Assassin’s Creed Movie Trailer Doesn’t Look Half Bad

I have some reservations about the Assassin’s Creed movie, and they’re the same ones I have with the games: the modern day bookends are really, really stupid. The heart of the story is in the past. Why not just tell a story about the character in the past? Why add this overly convoluted extra story about a guy in the present getting plugged into a machine so that the bad guys can put him into some kind of virtual reality memory machine? Why is that necessary? It’s not like the present day storyline ever really paid off in the games.

But hey, the trailer looks pretty cool.

I like the seriousness of the trailer. Like, they’re really pushing it, and I think it definitely works for this movie. And the trailer does a good job of explaining this dumb, convoluted set-up. Here’s hoping the film is better than I give it credit for!

  1. This trailer is perfect, I’m glad they knew that when I imagine Spain during the inquisition my first thought is “This could use some Kanye”.
