A First Look At The Assassin’s Creed Movie

A First Look At The Assassin’s Creed Movie


Fans of the Assassin’s Creed series of video games began their critique of the movie adaptation shortly after the first image leaked. Now there’s a trailer.

Michael Fassbender proves his chops as a versatile actor having taken on a varied number of roles in the last few years that range from the big budget ‘X-Men’ movies to the oscar winning ’12 Years A Slave’ right through to the odd but enjoyable feature that is ‘Frank’. But fan’s reaction to the actor’s casting as lead character Callum Lynch in the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed film wasn’t all entirely positive.

Now with a first trailer to get stuck into we’re wondering if die hard followers of the popular video game series will be won over by Fassbender’s depiction of the character on the silver screen? In the film Lynch experiences the adventure of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain.

Assassin’s Creed will hope to draw in a Christmas audience when the film hits cinemas in the U.S. on the 21st of December with the U.K. release scheduled for the 30th of the same month. Other regions should check IMDB for release dates.

Synopsis | 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.
