Los Angeles Times have revealed some awesome shots from the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie adaptation starring Michael Fassbender (Slow West, X-Men: Apocalypse) and have also teased that a debut trailer will release Wednesday. Watch this space!
The film follows the same premise as the videogame series by Ubisoft. Those games chronicled the journey of Desmond Miles who is captured by a secret organisation know as Abstergo, a continuation of the Knights Templar. Using a device known as the Animus, Desmond is repeatedly sent back in time to live through memories of his Assassin ancestors and uncover items of ultimate power before eventually uncovering the truth about the origins of the human race. The film is opting for a brand new protagonist in the form of Callum Lynch who will access the memories of his assassin ancestor Aguilar.
Alongside Fassbender the film stars Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception), Michael K. Williams (The Wire, Ghostbusters 2016) and Jeremy Irons (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). Directed by Justin Kurzel 'Assassin's Creed: The Movie' is set release December 21, 2016.
