The highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed trailer has hit the web and shows off the video game adaption in full force. The trailer sets up this world and explains that Michael Fassbender, who will be playing dual roles Callum Lynch and Aguilar, is being connected with his past blood relatives. Despite them being separated by a few hundred years, they are now re-connected via sci-fi technology through Lynch.
For fans of the video game, this world and visuals might feel familiar but for those of who haven’t played the game, this feels like a new and interesting world with impressive visual effects and fight choreography. Below we highlight the top five moments from the trailer, both good and bad (yes, we talk about that Kanye West song).
Callum Lynch discovers that his ancestor Aguilar, from 15th century Spain, was an Assassin. Callum relives Aguilar’s memories to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to confront the Templars — age-old enemies of the Assassins — in the present day.
Directed by Justin Kurzel and starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, Ariane Labed, Jeremy Irons, and Brendan Gleeson, Assassin’s Creed opens in theaters December 21.
