The film adaptation of Assassin’s Creed has finally received its first trailer, showcasing Michael Fassbender as the 15th century Spanish assassin Aguilar and his descendant Callum Lynch.
The trailer showcases several signature aspects of the video games including the twin hidden blades, Animus, Abstergo and reliving the past to unearth some secret of some sort. Aside from the Kanye West song, the Spanish Inquisition scenes look pretty cool and seem to capture the feel of Assassin’s Creed admirably.
Then again, with the history that video game films have had – which hasn’t been helped by more contemporary adaptations like Need for Speed and Hitman: Agent 47 – Assassin’s Creed could end up falling flat when it releases on December 21st. We’re still hopeful though and honestly, nothing is going to beat the Prince of Persia film for “worst silver screen adaptation of a Ubisoft game ever”.
