20th Century Fox has released a brand new TV spot for the upcoming film Assassin’s Creed, the highly anticipated big-screen adaptation of the popular video game series.
The title of the TV spot, “It’s Time to Make History”, of course refers to the central concept of both the film and video games, wherein the main character uses revolutionary technology to relive the experiences of their ancestor. However, with past video game adaptations faring rather poorly in terms of critical and box-office success, 20th Century Fox could also be making a statement about they hope to break that trend with the upcoming film.

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.
Directed by Justin Kurzel, Assassin’s Creed stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendon Gleeson and Michael K. Williams .
Assassin’s Creed will be released in theaters on December 21, 2016.
