I guess Jimmy Kimmel Live is the place to go for trailer premieres since the first trailer for Assassin’s Creed hit last night. Regardless, I’ve been interested in this for a while. Based on Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed videogame series, Michael Fassbender stars as Callum, a man who’s stuck into a machine called the Animus and forced to live the life of one of his ancestors, an assassin in 19th century Spain.
At first glance you probably wouldn’t associate this with a videogame. It looks good, the parkour action flows well, and it’s really hard to look at Fassbender and Marion Cotillard and not take it seriously. But this year we’ve seen some decent videogame films and some not so decent, so it’s all up in the air at this point. I’m hoping this is the first universally good one.
Assassin’s Creed releases December 21st.
