Yesterday, 20th Century Fox has debuted a new ‘Assassin’s Creed’ which displays Michael Fassbender‘s Callum Lynch through time into battle. According to Executive Producer, Pat Crowley, the Assassin’s Creed movie will be taking place in about 65% in the present time and 35% in the past, which is a reversal from the games. One could speculate the reason this is happening is to explain what the organizations running the program being used to send Callum Lynch in the past is all about. New Regency is aiming to turn this movie into a franchise with two additional films planned, with the first sequel entering development.
Assassin’s Creed follows a character by the name of Callum Lynch who, through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, is able to experience 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 Knights Templar organization in the present day.
‘Assassin’s Creed‘ stars Michael Fassbender (X-Men Apocalypse), and Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises). As Jeremy Irons (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice), Michael K. Williams (The Night Of), Brendan Gleeson (Edge of Tomorrow) co-star. The film is directed by Justin Kurzel; produced by New Regency, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, DC Films, and Kennedy/Marshall and distributed by 20th Century Fox.
‘Assassin’s Creed‘ opens in theaters worldwide on December 21st, 2016.
