New Assassin's Creed Movie TV Trailer Shows Action and Story

Assassin's Creed comes to theaters on December 21.


Fox has released a new TV spot for Assassin's Creed, the upcoming movie based on Ubisoft's popular video game series. The video uses footage from previous trailers, but compiles it in a new way.

In only 30 seconds, the video touches on the story, shows some intense action scenes, and even includes a cheesy standard fare line from Michael Fassbender. "The party's just getting started," he says. The video also confirms Assassin's Creed will be rated PG-13 and not R.

The rating is no surprise, as Ubisoft Motion Pictures VP Stephanie Simard said in June that the publisher was aiming for PG-13.

This new video follows one from last week in which Fassbender talked about the importance of not using CGI very much and instead doing a lot of practical stunts. "In an era where there's a lot of CGI, we wanted to have as much old-school, real location shoots as possible," he said.

Assassin's Creed comes to theaters on December 21. In addition to Fassbender, it stars Oscar winners Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Irons. Ariane Labed, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael Kenneth Williams are also in the movie. A new trailer was released last month--watch it here.

As for the Assassin's Creed game series, there won't be a new entry in the mainline series this year. However, Ubisoft will release the Ezio Trilogy for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this month.
