Assassin's Creed Movie Trailer

The movie industry in the past has given us some some attempts at creating different films based on the popularity of a video game.  We all can probably remember some of the more popular ones like  Mortal Kombat, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, the Resident Evil series, and a couple of Hitman movies.  There are also some that we'd rather try and forget like the DOOM movie and Double Dragon movie.  Did you know that there was a Far Cry movie released back in 2008?  

I remember going to the movies to see Street Fighter:  The Legend of Chung Li.  I made it all the way through the movie but left feeling very disappointed.  As gamers we expect the movie industry to match the level of greatness behind the minds of the video game creators, story tellers and level designers.  Unfortunately, more times than not we are left with a sub par representation of what we enjoyed playing on the PC or console.  

Technology has taken leaps and bounds and it would seem now that we have the means and ability to create some great video game quality movies.  A few days ago, 20th Century Fox and Ubisoft announced the new Assassin's Creed movie.  I am a big fan of the video game series for their incredible story telling, epic level design and their historical content.  Check out the official Assassin's Creed trailer below! 

 
The movie is set during the Spanish Inquisition from what we can gather in the trailer.  The main character Callum Lynch who also plays his ancestor the assassin Aguilar.  Who is best know for his role as Magneto in the last few XMEN movies.  Through out the trailer you see scenes taken directly from the game, such as the Leap of Faith at the end,  the Eagle flying over the city representing Eagle vision, some Parkour moves we love from the game and the hidden blades.  The only part which I was slightly taken back with is the actual Animus device.  Instead of it being some VR machine with a pod like feel to it from the games, in the trailer we see it represented as a giant robotic arm.  It looks cool, and I'd have to wait till the movie comes out to actually see how it is used.  I am still optimistic about the Assassins Creed movie and definitely will be one of the many who will see it on its release day of 12.12.2016!
 
What are your thoughts on the Assassin's Creed trailer? Let us know about your early expectations.  Should you need something to tied you over till the movie comes out, the be sure to check out the play on the AC video game series starring some cute and deadly Assassin Kittens!

    I found the Parkour features in AC game neat for it's time, but in the trailer, I feel that I will be disappointed. They don't look or feel real and doesn't seem like real parkour athletes were used.

    As for the Animus, my GF agrees with you. She's a greater AC fan than me. Instead, I like watching her play and explore the area to expend the map.
