    Could this be one of the few video game movies that breaks the curse of bad video game movies? Personally, I never got a chance to play the games, although they always intrigued me. What do fans of the game series think? Was Fassbender the right choice for this part?

    I'm a serious fan of the series. I've played at least some of all of them except for Unity or whatever that crappy one that was geared more towards multiplayer was.

    I like that Fassbender is playing a "new" character instead of the main modern day guy (Desmond) from the first bunch of games.

    Having watched this trailer this morning, I am thoroughly excited for this movie. Idk about their take on the Animus (I'm assuming that's the weird robot arm thing holding him up?) In the games, it's more like a VR bed/chair thing. I suppose this offers a chance for scenes of him in the Animus to be more interesting than just laying there "jacked in" like in the Matrix, so I'm willing to withhold judgement.

    Huge fan of the series...super huge. I'm friends with one of the Community developers that still streams on Twitch. I've also played all the console titles and own every collector's edition with some awesome swag.

    Glad to see other fans. The only thing I despised about this trailer was the music. Ugh...it so did not fit at all. Although I could care less. I just want to see it already

    I absolutely love the series, I used to have all of the games in their collectors editions before my ex stole them... regardless I'm hoping this turns out to be at least half as good as the stories in some of the better games.

    and... maybe we can finally figure out how to make some wrist blades.

    That too. I know the song, so I didn't bother to investigate further when I got that message.

    It looks like Nickelback but I don't know the song.


    Bahaha. It's Godsmack.

    Did someone accuse me of playing nickelback?

    @Jonny Kansas said he would ban me if I post NB.

    Yeah I never played the game, so I was thinking assassins worked alone. Alright your game fans provide us a better sound track than Kayne West.
