New Assassin's Creed Movie Video Shows off Assassins and Templars

The new video game movie, Assassin’s Creed, opens in theaters tomorrow, December 21. Fox today put out another new video for the film, which dives into the fictional Brotherhood of Assassins and Templars. It positions them as real secret societies, not unlike actual real ones such as the Free Masons, the Illuminati, and Skull and Bones. The video also contains some slick footage of the movie, including some intense action sequences in the film’s 15th century Spain setting. Take a look:

Assassin’s Creed stars Michael Fassbender, Ariane Labed, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael Kenneth Williams. It was directed by Justin Kurzel, who directed Fassbender and Cotillard in Macbeth.

Last week, Ubisoft’s Azaïzia Aymar predicted that Assassin’s Creed will buck the trend of video game movies being mediocre or worse.

“I really think it’s going to be a milestone movie,” he said. “It’s going to be the very first time that a video game studio creative works with movie creatives altogether to share a vision and give them the tool to express themselves; rather than have an adaptation. There’s going to be a ‘before and after Assassin’s Creed movie’ for sure.”

Reviews for the film came online this week and not all were positive. You can read GameSpot’s review here and find out what other critics think in this review roundup.

In other news, you can now listen to the entire Assassin’s Creed soundtrack, which was composed by Kurzel’s brother, Jed Kurzel.
