After a long time spent getting off the ground, Assassin’s Creed will finally be coming to theaters later this year. It’s now being reported that the film will have a run time of two hours and twenty minutes.
The film is based on the video game, but has taken some creative liberties. None of the games took place during the Spanish Inquisition. The original game was based in the Middle East during the Crusades and the second game took place during the Italian Renaissance.
So the movie will be its own thing, but it looks like it will have some really cool action sequences and the images of Michael Fassbender in his costume all look fantastic so far.
Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.
Assassin’s Creed is directed by Justin Kurzel and is written by Bill Collage, Adam Cooper, and Micahel Lesslie.
The film stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Khalid Abdalla, Michael K. Williams.
Assassin’s Creed hits theaters December 21, 2016.
