The Party Is Just Getting Started In The New ASSASSIN'S CREED Trailer!
I don't have much of an opinion on director Justin Kurzel's latest live-action video game film treatment, Assassin's Creed. Really, I'm just looking forward to the film, although I am fascinated by the prospect of deciphering between what shots are practical and CG-generated with a blue screen, as quite a few of these stunts were captured on set video in earlier BTS clips.
Point in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they were all at their most practical in capacity. The internet is ripe with freerunning videos full of practically-performed, raw and death-defying stuntwork and there's no question that the team on this film has done its fair share of dynamic stuntwork in this regard. This, coupled with the starpower of actor Michael Fassbender and the popularity of the game franchise itself could really bring something fun and a worthwhile milestone for parkour in mainstream film and TV.
With just a little over two months left before its theatrical release, the second official trailer is out as well as the newest poster. Peep it all below!
