[Staff Picks] Assassin’s Creed

Assassin’s Creed is finally out for home consumption on Blu-Ray, DVD, 3D, 4K Blu-Ray, iTunes, and Google Play Store! The movie based on the hugely successful series of games from Ubisoft and the release contains 90 minutes of bonus features ranging from a documentary to deleted scenes (these are pretty awesome!) and lots of concept art look over.

The deleted scenes are my personal favorite part of the collection, featuring some interesting scenes that provided a different look at many of the characters, as well as the exclusive of Lara, a young Assassin, from the theatrical cut.

She was cut from the final release due to not serving a purpose to the core of the story.
