Years have passed since the project’s announcement in 2011, and now the first trailer for Assassin’s Creed: The Movie has been released!
Releasing December 21st 2016, the film will be primarily set during the Spanish Inquisition and will star Michael Fassbender as 15th Century Assassin Aguilar de Nerha, and his modern-day descendant Callum Lynch.
(Fun fact, the release date is a reference to the false “apocalypse” of 12/21/2012; the earlier games were based around a similar catastrophe that would have taken place on that date, had it not been for Desmond Miles)
The movie is confirmed to take place within AC canon, and will feature what appears to be an all-new iteration of the Animus, the series’ signature piece of technology which allows the user to explore the memories of their ancestors through the manipulation of their own DNA.
What do you think of the trailer? What are you most excited to see in AC: The Movie?
