The marketing campaign for Assassin’s Creed has been a rather strange one as it clashed together a futuristic and medieval time period with modern day hip-hop. The final trailer for the film finally featured appropriate music but up until now the actual score for the film has remained a mystery. In a clip released by 20th Century Fox which unveils an intense chase scene ending with the video game franchise’s signature leap of faith, we get a taste of the which delivers an eastern sound provided by composer Jed Kurzel (Macbeth, The Babadook). The verdict? For a chase scene that ends with something so important for the game, the music is completely underwhelming.

Another clip also gives a look into the drama of the film featuring Michael Fassbender acting opposite Michael K. Williams. Obviously, both clips are out of context but the clips don’t do much to help sell the film to a nerd like myself or general audiences either. The more I see from the film, the less I feel the need to go see this film, especially when another Star Wars film is playing at the theater.

Assassin’s Creed hits theaters December 21st.

The film stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson and Michael K. Williams. Written by Michael Lesslie, Adam Cooper, and Bill Collage. Directed by Justin Kurzel

Assassin’s Creed has the best chance of finally legitimizing video game adaptations in cinema, however. Up until now the marketing campaign for the film has been a strange one, featuring modern day hip-hop clashing against the medieval setting in the trailers. While the film does look like it has potential at being the best video game adaptation yet (which isn’t saying much), the marketing is needed to be spectacular for it to be able to compete with the juggernaut Rogue One. In a last ditch effort, 20th Century Fox has released a final trailer for the film that finally features appropriate music. The film features a tremendously talented cast led by Macbeth alum Michael Fassbender, Marion Cottilard, and director Justin Kurzel.
