The first trailer for Assassin’s Creed has been released and it looks awesome! The tone and style are spot on with the video game, and it’s spectacular. What’s impressive is that the stunt work was all done with stunt professionals. They could have gone the CGI route with that stuff, but they chose to take the hardcore badass direction.
The film is based on the Ubisoft video game franchise, and the story follows a character named Callum Lynch who, “through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, is able to experience 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.”
The film was directed by Justin Kurrzel (Macbeth), and it stars Michael Fassbender as Lynch. He is joined by Marion Cotillard (Inception), Michael K. Williams (The Wire), Jeremy Irons (Batman v Superman), and Brendan Gleeson (Edge of Tomorrow).
Assassin’s Creed is set to be released on December 21st, 2016. Watch the trailer and let us know what you think of it.
