The trailer for the upcoming video game turned action adventure film Assassin’s Creed has just been released, and when the franchise sells almost 100 million games you have to have high expectations for the film. No pressure guys!
Career criminal Callum Lynch is rescued from his own execution by Abstergo Industries, the modern-day incarnation of the Templar Order. He is forced to participate in the Animus Project and relive the memories of his ancestor Aguilar de Nerha, an Assassin during the Spanish Inquisition. As Lynch continues to experience Aguilar's memories, he begins to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to confront the Templars—age-old enemies of the Assassins—in the present day.
With an impressive cast that features Michael Fastbender as the lead, the film also has Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, Ariane Labed, Jeremy Irons, and Brendon Gleeson.
Due for a December release you can check out the trailer (which was viewed by over 7 million people in the first 24 hours after getting its first showing on Jimmy Kimmel Live in America) below.
