Come December 21, Ubisoft, in collaboration with 20th Century Fox, is going to come out with an Assassin’s Creed movie. The trailer has been released and frankly, my hopes aren’t high. Kanye West, f***ing really? The trailer doesn’t tell us much about the movie, other than costume and actor choices. Both of those appear to be just fine, the costumes look well enough, though I have seen better cosplay. The actors I cannot judge until the full movie is out, as I am not familiar with any of them save Jeremy Irons and Michael Fassbender.
As much as I adore both of these men, amazing actors do not always end up in the best movies. The scriptwriter, director, cinematographer, and costume designer can make or break a movie, in my opinion. These things are not in actors’ control and can often undermine their skills despite their best efforts.
