Being part of the Assassin's Creed meme series, I think that's a given

It looks more to the games than the Resident Evil movies.

Well when the best video game adaptation so far is Prince of Persia (ironically the game that inspired Assassin's Creed), you can only go up from there.

Prince of Persia wasn't bad, though. It wasn't going to garner any Golden Globes, but it wasn't bad. I think people are just too critical of video game movie adaptions as a whole.

You can thank the Mario Bros movie back in the 90s. It pretty much destroyed any credibility for video game adaptations since. It was so bad, Nintendo never tried another attempt

I watched this trailer just to be sure that it was actually Damon Wayans Senior playing Murtaugh, because this guy doesn't appear to age.

Yeah...I was upset when I saw this. They hired one of the Wayans brothers to play Danny Glover....that's gotta be a sin. It's like hiring a fat unfunny black chick to play Ernie Hudson in Ghostbuster...oh wait.

I'm not necessary upset by this, Damon Wayans Sr just doesn't look like he's too old for this shit.

That too, but also he doesn't give off the charm of Danny Glover.
