This is a very strange trailer for what looks to be a very strange movie. And despite some poor choices by the studio, I kinda dug it. First, let's get the obvious out of the way- scoring this trailer with Kanye West's "I Am A God" was probably not the best choice. Juxtaposing Kanye with The Spanish Inquisition was a move that turned off a lot of people, which is understandable. However, when you move past the music, this is actually a pretty cool preview of this film. The blend of adventure with science fiction is really fascinating, giving Assassin's Creed a unique quality in the modern blockbuster climate. In addition to that, this is just a spectacular-looking film. The visuals appear to be stunning, the stuntwork looks eye-popping, and with esteemed actors like Fassbender and Cotillard, I truly believe that this could end up being a great film. I wasn't initially a huge fan of the trailer, but I'm starting to really warm up to what this movie could be.
Assassin's Creed stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Callum Turner, Michael K. Williams, Brian Gleeson, Ariane Labed, and Matias Varela. The film will debut on December 21.
