4. World Building
This trailer needed to set up the world that Assassin’s Creed will live within, for fans of the video games and movie goers who have never picked up the game. It does that effortlessly, right off the start Marion Cotillard’s character explains that it is through advanced scientific technology that Callum Lynch/Aguilar, is being connected with his past blood relatives. This also explains going back and forth between modern/futuristic settings and the 15th century. This feels like a completely new world and landscape for moviegoers to explore and most of all it doesn’t feel like a video game, it feels like a live-action, intense, yet historical film.
