Assassin’s Creed fans got their first proper look at the upcoming 20
Century Fox film Assassin’s Creed on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night.
The film, based on Ubisoft’s wildly popular game franchise of the same name, seems to be in good hands. It’s being directed by Justin Kurzel and produced by Michael Fassbender.
Fassbender stars in the movie as Callum Lynch, alongside Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises), Jeremy Irons (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter), Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire), Ariane Labed (Before Midnight), and Callum Turner (Green Room).
The trailer’s world premiere is below:
The following is the official plot synopsis for Assassin’s Creed:
“Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.”
Assassin’s Creed is set to hit theaters this December.
