Sure, you’ve got the whole innocent until proven guilty thing, but this trailer makes the upcoming Assassin’s Creed flick look like a pile of crap.
There’s the obvious errors in judgement, such as the Kanye West song. Whoever thought that would be an appropriate soundtrack for this trailer should have a long hard think. Unless the song will actually also be in the film, which is worse, and then the director, Justin Kurzel, needs to have a long hard think.
Then there’s the subtler errors in judgement, such as the bleak colour pallete, the forced, cheesy dialogue, the casting of wonderful actors in crappy looking roles. Fassy, you’ve come so far from 300, why look back now?
But then there is the whole innocent until proven guilty thing, and this might just be a terrible trailer. History has generally shown, however, that with bad trailer comes bad responsibility…or just bad film.
“Career criminal Callum Lynch is rescued from his own execution by Abstergo Industries, the modern-day incarnation of the Templar Order. He is forced to participate in the Animus Project and relive the memories of his ancestor Aguilar de Nerha, an Assassin during the Spanish Inquisition. As Lynch continues to experience Aguilar’s memories, he begins to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to confront the Templars—age-old enemies of the Assassins—in the present day.“
Assassin’s Creed stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson and Michael Kenneth Williams and is set for release in December, 2016.
