With Warcraft released in theaters this past weekend and not living up to expectations, Assassin’s Creed is now looked at as the movie to jumpstart the video game adaptation revolution. And quite frankly, it’s better suited for it. Nothing against Warcraft at all, because there is some rich stuff there, but the Assassin’s Creed world is better suited to fit the big screen. It doesn’t require any major special effects or motion-capture roles, just big action set-pieces with stunt actors like any other fantasy adventure film.
Along with being fit the big screen, the Michael Fassbender led movie has started off a bit hotter as well. The debut trailer for Warcraft was good, but the Assassin’s Creed trailer was kick-ass, minus the music. Now with the big video game convention E3 happening this past weekend, naturally 20th Century Fox and Ubisoft have dropped a new footage for their upcoming adaptation. Sticking with their hot streak, the following featurette gives us even more background on the movie from director Justin Kurzel and the Assassin himself, Michael Fassbender. Not only that, but we get some new footage and really cool behind-the-scenes shots of action sequences.
After watching the new featurette, let us know what you think of the new footage in the comments below. Are you a fan of the game? What did you think of the first trailer? Does it look like the video game movie we’ve been waiting for? Justin Kurzel’s Assassin’s Creed hits theaters December 21st, 2016 starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Michael K. Williams, and Ariane Labed.
