The official trailer for Assassin’s Creed is finally here and it does not disappoint. Starring Jeremy Irons, Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams and Michael Fassbender who plays as Callum Lynch as man on death row and a recruit of Abstergo Corporation. For those of you not well versed with the title, the film is based off Ubisoft’s best-selling games which focalizes on the centuries old fight between the Assassin’s and the Templars. We won’t be getting a new Assassin’s Creed game this year but let’s hope the movie fills that void.
Assassin’s Creed is slated to hit theatres on December 21.
However, rather than follow one of the series more memorable characters like Ezio Auditore da Firenze or Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad, the writers and filmmakers decided to take an entirely new take and create the story from scratch. This isn’t particularly unusual considering most of their new games focuses on different characters from Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag with Edward Kenway to Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Arno Dorian. It wouldn’t be an Assassin’s Creed official poster without the iconic leap of faith in it, right? The official poster can be seen below
Back when news surfaced regarding Fassbender’s role in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film, to research for the game reported by Entertainment Weekly, he commented, “I’ve played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character. We’re striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can.”
What do you think about the trailer – do you like that they have chosen to focus on a completely new story or would you have rather they have made a film based on one of the series previous characters.
