Assassin's_Creed_posterFor some reason, we just can’t get video game movies right. I don’t know what it is, but almost none of them have been legitimately good, beyond serviceable or a fun watch. I was hesitant when it broke that Michael Fassbender was spearheading an adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, but what they hey, I’m on board now. The trailer strikes a weird tone, but the cast looks incredible, the visuals and action look interesting, and if anything, director Justin Kurzel has won a lifetime pass thanks to his stunning rendition of Macbeth (also starring Fassbender and Cotillard).

Can this break the chain of bad video game adaptations? We’llĀ find out in December 21st.
