20th Century Fox released the trailer for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.
Michael Fassbender stars in the movie as the Assassin Aguilar and his present-day descendant Callum Lynch. In the movie Lynch is “killed” in a staged execution for an unknown crime. He wakes up imprisoned by Abstergo and Dr. Sophia Rikkin, played by Marion Cotillard. Lynch is strapped to the movie’s version of the Animus, involving a massive robotic arm, which allows him to relieve the memories of his distant ancestor Aguilar.
Ubisoft’s series is apparent all throughout the trailer. Images of eagles, the Abstergo logo, hidden blades, and more show the movie is (so far) respective of the source material. The Assassin’s Creed movie will explore the 15th century and the Spanish Inquisition, a setting not touched on in the games.
Justin Kurzel is directing the film. He previously worked with Fassbender and Cotillard on his adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
The Assassin’s Creed movie releases Dec. 21, 2016.
