Watch the downbeat alternate ending for the Assassin’s Creed movie


Assassin’s Creed wasn’t the great video game movie people were waiting for. It received mixed-negative reviews and under-performed at the box office, which means a proposed Assassin’s Creed film trilogy is probably DOA.

Despite all this, the people at Collider scored something of interest. It turns out there was an alternate ending for Assassin’s Creed, and it was a bit of a downer. Director Justin Kurzel and editor Christopher Tellefsen both commented on the test audience reaction to it as well as their decision-making process.

The footage in this alternate ending still has the safety wires/rigging and green screen visible, but it gives you a good idea about fate of Callum’s fellow assassins. Give it a watch.

(SPOILERS, obviously)
