20th Century Fox has released the second trailer for Assassin’s Creed, starring Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, 12 Years a Slave) and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, La Vie en Rose) in what is an adaptation of the popular Ubisoft video game franchise. Check out the trailer below along with the film’s new poster.
Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences 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 Templar organization in the present day.
Directed by Justin Kurzel, who re-teamed with Fassbender following last year’s Macbeth, Assassin’s Creed features a screenplay by Adam Cooper, Bill Collage and Michael Lesslie and co-stars Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson and Michael K. Williams. The film opens in theaters on December 21, 2016.
