I hope you found your way here without too much trouble and that you have a fresh cup of coffee at hand to enjoy throughout this week’s Morning Coffee.
The subject of this post is Assassin’s Creed but not the game, the movie which has been promised for some time now and is finally well under way; due to be released December 21st we have after a long and anxious wait been rewarded with a trailer.
I have been a keen follower of the Assassin’s Creed storyline via the videogames over the years since the very beginning and have only ceased to continue since the newer next gen releases; with that said, it is pretty hard to formulate just how excited I am about this movie.
I might be severely disagreed with for this next statement, but I am actually more excited for this release than I was for Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and that was a very well received movie but it just didn’t hold the same sense of anticipation as Assassin’s Creed does. I’ve also watched the trailer several times and December is beginning to feel like an incredibly long way off.
I won’t go into the details of the storyline or the concept in this post as the trailer pretty much sums it up, but I will say how surprised I am that Michael Fassbender seems to fit the role that when first announced, I wasn’t sure he would. I don’t know why exactly, I just had a feeling that he wasn’t the man for the job but the trailer alone seems to discredit any doubts I initially had about his casting as the protagonist.
Also whilst on the subject on Assassin’s Creed, I did write a post a short while ago looking at the concept art work for the video games, you can find that post by Clicking Here.
I’m also interested in turning these Morning Coffee posts into a bit of a discussion area as well, so please do feel free to comment with your thoughts and opinions; after all it is far easier to have a typed conversation in the morning than a vocal one, unless that’s just me.
So what are you thoughts on the trailer? Will the movie be your introduction to Assassin’s Creed? If you could relive the memories of your ancestors, would you choose a particular time period? What blend of coffee did you have this morning?
Thanks for joining me for this post, I hope you have enjoyed it and that you will join me again for another Morning Coffee in two weeks!
