Director Justin Kurzel has a tremendous weight upon his shoulders as the world expects his Assassin’s Creed adaptation to be the first truly fantastic video game movie. It is lucky then that he has both Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard at his disposal as well as an array of amazing special effects which can all be seen in the debut movie clip.
Courtesy of 20th Century Fox, we can take you inside the Animus ahead of the highly-anticipated film’s theatrical release on January 1st 2017 (New Year’s Day). Take a look!
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 stars Academy Award® nominee Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, 12 Years a Slave) and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, La Vie en Rose). The film is directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, Macbeth); produced by New Regency, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, DMC Films and Kennedy/Marshall; co-financed by RatPac Entertainment and Alpha Pictures; and distributed by 20th Century Fox.
Assassin’s Creed opens in US theatres on 21st December, whilst we’ll have to wait a little longer before we can experience the Spanish Inquisition action, but it looks as though it’ll be worth it…
