Watch the first trailer for the Assassin’s Creed movie
The first official trailer for Michael Fassbender’s Assassin’s Creed movie premiered last night during Jimmy Kimmel Live, and it actually looks pretty good.
The trailer offers an in-depth look at Fassbender as the Assassin Callum Lynch during the historic era of the Spanish Inquisition (a time period which actually hasn’t appeared in any of the Assassin’s Creed games), as well as the movie’s unique version of the Animus (the machine which modern test subjects use to relive the memories of their ancestors). Peppered in among scenes depicting the series’ iconic freerunning and combat sequences are glimpses of other Assassin’s Creed elements such as the villainous Abstergo Industries, and several supporting characters played by other notable actors like Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Irons.
The Assassin’s Creed film is set to launch on December 21 of this year, serving as the big Assassin’s Creed release of 2016 since Ubisoft will not be releasing a major AAA entry in the Assassin’s Creed game franchise until next year.
