20th Century Fox has just released a brand new trailer for their highly anticipated video game adaptation Assassin's Creed! The ambitious film adaptation stars Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch, who must relive his ancestor's memories to travel back in time during the 15th century Spanish Inquisition. The film is directed by Macbeth helmer Justin Kurzel which also starred Michael Fassbender, a film which showed a lot of promise for the up and coming director.
Hopefully that experience lends itself to helping the first potentially great video game movie adaptation. However, I must say this new trailer, much like the previous one looks gorgeous but is hampered by music that just doesn't fit. I'm not sure who or what type of uninspiring music this is playing over the trailer, but its downright terrible. I was cringing the whole time I was watching the trailer. Not sure who is making these choices, but they aren't the right ones in my opinion for a film that is supposed to be a massive success.
The film also sports a nice supporting cast of Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael K. Williams. Check out the brand new trailer below and sound off in the comments section with your thoughts. As always, thanks for stopping by EastCoastMovieGuys!
