20th Century Fox has just dropped the first trailer and a new poster for Assassin’s Creed.
The film is based on the famous Ubisoft game franchise and features X-Men star Michael Fassbender playing the character of Callum Lynch. After undergoing a revolutionary process that unlocks genetic memories, Lynch is able to experience the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in the Spanish Inquisition era. He then discovers that he comes from a mysterious secret society called the Assassins, and gathers incredible knowledge and skills to overthrow an iron-fisted Templar organization in the present day.
Joining Fassbender are Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, Jeremy Irons, and Brendan Gleeson. Justin Kurzel, who also worked with Fassbender and Cotillard in 2015’s Macbeth, is directing the movie.
Assassin’s Creed opens December 21.
