maxresdefault (1)

Hey guys, it’s Rek here. A new trailer for Assassin’s Creed the movie was released today and I am going to attempt to go over everything that was in the trailer, and also review the new content.

You can check out our review for the first trailer here.

Watch the new trailer below and we’ll get into it!

First Impressions

Rek: I loved this trailer. I can’t wait to see it on the screen.

Seppin: I love the fact that they are focusing on the stunts and the action sequences that Assassin’s Creed is known for.

 

Shot by Shot

Michael Fassbender’s character is locked up in his complementary Abstergo cell and he is insane. I am not sure if he is the one who drew the pictures on the walls or the prisoner who was in the cell behind him.

 

It is his first day in Abstergo.

 

A whole squadron of Abstergo agents to take on the green coated alcoholic.

 

More Jeremy Irons. He is talking about Callum.

 

Resisting authority.

 

Some medieval weaponry that was collected by the Templars.

 

A sweet Templar shield.

 

This is the Assassin’s Creed.

 

Callum Lynch is having his death faked.

 

He wakes up in Abstergo Industries.

 

Callum is not taking this whole ‘experimental project’ too well.

 

The scene that we saw in the last trailer of Callum in Abstergo.

 

This seems to be one of the members of the Assassin Order within Abstergo.

 

I suspect that he is also an Assassin undercover. In a later shot, we see an assassin who looks similar to him, which leads me to believe that they are both going back to the same time period.

 

A beautiful shot of Abstergo Industries from the outside.

 

Callum is about to be hooked up to the Animus.

 

I love the look of those hidden blades. It means that someone is about to get hurt.

 

Locking in.

 

I totally want an Abstergo seat belt after this shot by shot is over.

 

Blade extended.

 

A new look at the Animus.

 

And… another look at this amazing shot of Callum’s ancestor in Spain.

 

Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. I didn’t sign up for this.

 

You can not have and Assassin’s Creed trailer without this eagle. How old is this bird anyway?

 

I love all of the stunts that they have shown us so far. It is such an important part to the game and I am so happy that they are making it a key component to the movie.

 

Some training in the Animus.

 

Some sweet parkour over the rooftops.

 

Sweet parkour continued.

 

 

What’s that shadow? Assassinated…

 

Callum is starting to go insane from the overuse of the animus and he seeing his ancestor in present day.

 

The assassins are being tried.

 

Callum escapes his chains.

 

Callum saves the girl and cuts her chains.

 

Callum does a flip and she throws a dagger at the man.

 

A chase scene?

 

An assassin with a grappling hook. I am not dissing on it, but I am wondering where he got it from…maybe Da Vinci?

 

Another nice looking shot.

 

Vive la revolucion! The assassins are about to fight the Templars. I want to see this fight scene so bad.

 

Back to back. Another repeat shot.

 

So in this shot, we can see that Callum is throwing a dagger at a man from the Spanish Inquisition. He must be losing his mind.

 

It looks like there is going to be a riot at Abstergo industries. The assassins will stand up against the Templars and fight. Or they will sit down and do nothing.

 

 

Again, this is going to be an epic action scene.

 

Don’t forget your hoodie before you go out and kill people Callum!

 

The Leap of Faith is so epic.

 

A sweet dagger throw behind his back.

 

Overall it looks great. There are some new scenes, but not as many as I would have liked. I realize they are trying to surprise us in the movie theater, but I would love to see more of the Spanish Inquisition and how they play into that time period. The music is okay. ‘This is my world‘…fits the creed.
