So, if you haven’t heard by now, the ridiculously popular and successful Assassin’s Creed franchise is taking it’s leap of faith towards the big screen on December 21st!
Starring Michael Fassbender, he plays the role of Callum Lynch, a man who becomes spirited away to the mysterious Abstergo Industries before he can be executed by Sophia Rikkin, played by Marion Cotillard. Informing him of his Assassin roots, Lynch then begins his journey through his past via the Animus, a device that allows the user to experience their ancestor’s memories through their DNA. He must find out what is going on between the Assassins and the Templars, two organizations that have been at each other’s necks for ages. Will he find out the secret of Abstergo Industries? What all will he uncover in his ancestor’s past?
It’s clear that Ubisoft is trying to make it’s mark in history by not only having one of the most popular video game franchises, but by also turning it into one of the most successful video game movie ones as well! Watch the trailer here and see for yourself if the hype is worth it! I most certainly will be in the theaters this winter watching!
