What’s happening Geeks!
Looks like 20th Century Fox has released the first Trailer for director Justin Kurzel’s video game movie, ‘Assassin’s Creed’, starring Michael Fassbender as the title assassin. The film is based the popular action adventure/stealth video game series, sharing the same name, that was created by Ubi Soft. The film will tell a new story of death row inmate Callum Lynch (Fassbender), who is taken by the Abstergo company, after faking his death. The company has created a technology that will allow Lynch to relive the memories of his 15th century ancestor, Aguilar in Spain. Fassbender will be playing dual roles in the present day, as well as in the past.
I’m a big fan of the game series, thanks to my nephew and son, who encouraged me to play them a few years back. The trailer really captures the look and feel of the games, with the excellent parkour scenes and bad ass cinematography by Adam Arkapaw. I’ve got high hopes for this one geeks!
The film opens December 21’st, 2016!
