We are into the tail end of 2016’s film journey and one of those films at the very end of the release calendar is the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie, which is based on the highly popular game franchise.
X-Men star Michael Fassbender stars as criminal Callum Lynch, who is rescued from his own execution by Abstergo Industries the modern-day incarnation of the Templar Order. He is forced to participate in the Animus Project and relive the memories of his ancestor Aguilar de Nerha, an Assassin during the Spanish Inquisition. As Lynch continues to experience Aguilar’s memories, he begins to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to confront the Templars—age-old enemies of the Assassins—in the present day.
The film is directed by Justin Kurzel, who’s worked Fassbender and Marion Cotillard on Macbeth. The film also stars Jeremy Irons, Ariane Labed, Michael K. Williams and Brendan Gleeson.
