Must Watch: Michael Fassbender in First Trailer for 'Assassin's Creed'
"We work in the dark to serve the light. We are assassins." Fox has debuted the first trailer for Justin Kurzel's big screen take on the video game series Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender as the main character. Fassbender plays Callum Lynch, and as you'll see in this trailer, they use some sort of technology to send him back in time as his ancestor Aguilar. The cast includes Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Callum Turner; plus Ariane Labed, who looks totally badass. So far I'm actually impressed, this looks solid - the action looks good, the story seems intriguing, the performances look impressive, I'm hooked. Might be worth it after all. Fire this up and enjoy.
Here's the first official trailer for Justin Kurzel's Assassin's Creed movie, direct from Fox's Facebook:
