A second trailer for Assassin’s Creed fleshes out the details for those unfamiliar with the video game source material.
Michael Fassbender stars as Callum Lynch in the movie adaptation of the video game franchise Assassin’s Creed. With the movie appearing to be visually very faithful to the look of the games. If, like me, you’re not super familiar with the plot this second trailer goes a long way to filling in the details.
Using revolutionary technology Callum Lynch is thrust into the past to experience the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Through his experience Lynch discovers he is descended from a secret society known as ‘The Assassins’.
Some fans of the game series have questioned the casting of Michael Fassbender in the lead role but most moviegoers are going to be unconcerned by this. Expect a highly stylised action adventure filled of parkour and death defying stunts.
