Second US Trailer for 'Assassin's Creed' Starring Michael Fassbender
"Your Destiny Is In Your Blood." 20th Century Fox has released a second official trailer for the adaptation of the video game series Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender, giving us yet another look at this action movie. Fassbender plays Callum Lynch, who is sent back in time as his ancestor Aguilar. The cast includes Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Callum Turner; plus Ariane Labed. This trailer highlights more of the impressive action in this, but also spends time introducing us to the futuristic framing of the movie - Lynch being involved in this program. Perhaps playing off of the hype for Westworld a bit, maybe? Either way, this looks damn good - I'm excited to see it.
Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Justin Kurzel's Assassin's Creed, direct from YouTube:
Assassin's Creed, created by Patrice Desilets & Jade Raymond back in 2007, is an award winning historical fiction action-adventure open world stealth video game series that as of 2012 consists of five main games. The focus is on a protagonist character, an assassin, who usually wears a hooded outfit, which became the focus of their latest marketing campaign for AC: Revelations. The movie based on Assassin's Creed is being directed by Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel, of The Snowtown Murders and Macbeth previously. The screenplay has credits for Bill Collage, Adam Cooper and Michael Lesslie. It was filmed around Malta. 20th Century Fox will release Assassin's Creed in theaters everywhere starting December 21st. Excited for this?
