I want to say how much I love behind-the-scenes stuff like this, that’s why I converted to blu-rays, and once I see this film I can at least appreciate the work that seems to have gone into this movie. The director Justin Kurzel and star Michael Fassbender seem to be calmly enthusiastic about their latest project together and that should excite us. The duo worked on a beautifully shot, if not a little slower paced adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth which also starred Fassbender and Marion Cottiard.
It’s cool to see a more physical and realistic look on such an acrobatic video game without making it a mockery of itself. The wire work has looked sharp since the first trailer and it confirms our excitement that much more knowing we will be able to tell that those are really people instead of some out of place CGI character.
While I didn’t exactly hate the addition of Kanye West’s “I Am A God” track onto the first trailer, this is not a film that needs to try that hard to bring in an audience. This may have been their winning trailer to date and it will definitely have more butts in seats after people see this.
