The closest I claim I can make to video games is a) I played a mean game of Pac-Man and Tetris back in the day, b) my kids play video games a lot, and c) I like to watch the mister play Crash Bandicoot. So, don’t come in here and go all gamergate on me because I don’t know f*ck all about Assassin’s Creed. It looks to me like Michael Fassbender (who’s either dead or not) just entered the (olde tyme) Matrix, and Marion Cotillard is his Trinity, only in a less lovesick kind of way, which is probably better for everyone involved.
With that frame of reference in mind, I find Justin Kurzel’s (Macbeth, The Snowtown Murders) trailer pretty cool — well, except for Cotillard’s odd non-accent and not quite hitting a Carrie-Ann Moss level of bad-assery. Go ahead and have a look for yourself.
And, check out all the Matrixy-moves:
I’m guessing Jeremy Irons is not Morpheus, and Michael K. Williams is Agent Smith, but I have no idea who’ll turn out to be Cypher. All I know is Fassie should probably watch his back.
Assassin’s Creed hits theaters December 21st.
