Assassin’s Creed fans are in for a cinematic treat this coming winter—an unexpected and action-packed trailer was released earlier today for the movie directly inspired by the Ubisoft game. Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, and Brendan Gleeson, among other notable names, will star in the Justin Kurzel-directed production due to be released December 21, 2016. The heated story will follow protagonist 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. As the film progresses, he learns he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses immense knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day. Watch the official trailer for Assassin’s Creed above.
