20th Century Fox has released a second trailer for Assassin’s Creed, the movie adaptation of the hit video game series of the same name. The first trailer was released back in May.
This new trailer is longer than the first trailer and dives more into the time when the character Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) is getting acquainted with the mysterious corporation Abstergo and their virtual reality machine the Animus, mixed with some glimpses of his time inside the Animus itself where he experiences the life of his ancestor, the assassin Aguilar, over 500 years in the past.
You can read an official plot synopsis for the movie and watch the new trailer below.
The first official trailer for Assassin’s Creed, the movie based on the hit video game franchise of the same name starring Michael Fassbender, has been released online by 20th Century Fox.
In the movie, much like in the games, Fassbender’s character Callum Lynch re-lives the memories of one of his ancestors, an assassin from 15th century Spain named Aguilar, using a special machine called the Animus from the corporation Abstergo Industries.

A year ago we found out that a remake of the 1984 classic Romancing the Stone was in the works with Daniel McDermott (Eagle Eye) hired to write the script. No one enjoyed hearing this news, and no real updates ever came of the project leaving us all to hope it had been scrapped. It’s not so easy; reports from Pajiba state that the remake is still moving forward, and that Robert Luketic has been brought on to direct.
Luketic has a major resume for those who are fond of what we know as “Chick-Flicks” that includes Legally Blonde, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, Monster In-Law, and most recently, The Ugly Truth. He also directed the card math movie 21, and he is currently slated to be the man directing the limbo-trapped Barbarella remake. He even did a little short film in 1997 called Titsiana Booberini. Yeap.
With this information, you can basically just take all of those movies (with the exception of Booberini, of course) and watch the entire Romancing the Stone remake in your mind right this very moment, though I’m not sure this is a good thing.
The trades are reporting that 20th Century Fox has made a deal to acquire a pitch that would see the story of Moses from the Bible being retold using the highly-visual green screen styles that were used in the filming of Zack Snyder’s 300. The movie is expected to cover all of the chapters of the life of Moses, including almost dying as an infant, standing up to the Pharaoh, freeing the Hebrews from slavery, the plagues, and of course, the parting of the Red Sea.
The script is being written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, who recently wrote a new take on the classic tale of Moby Dick with a graphic novel vibe to it that is being developed for Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov.
Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov has signed on to direct a big-screen reimagining of the Herman Melville classic Moby Dick for Universal Pictures.
Universal apparently paid a hefty six-figure sum to Adam Cooper and Bill Collage to pen the screenplay.
In the 1851 novel, the story is told from the perspective of a young sailor named Ishmael, who enlists in a whaling expedition aboard the Pequod, helmed by the obsessive Captain Ahab. Through Ishmael’s eyes, it’s revealed that on a previous voyage, the titular great white whale destroyed Ahab’s ship and bit off his leg, which is what’s fueling Ahab’s hunt for Moby-Dick and his need for revenge.
Cooper and Collage’s version will abolish the book’s first-person narrative in favor of a graphic novel-style version of the story. I guess that means we won’t be hear one of the most famous literary opening sentences — “Call me Ishmael.” The reasoning is so that they can show Moby-Dick’s destruction of other ships prior to its encounter with the Pequod. Also, “Ahab will be depicted more as a charismatic leader than a brooding obsessive.”
