If you’ve been wanting to see more of ‘Assassin’s Creed‘ then you’re in luck today 20th Century Fox and Ubisoft Motion Pictures have released a couple new shots from the film. Both shots are of Michael Fassbender (‘Prometheus’,’X-Men: Apocalypse’) though one of them is as Callum Lynch, his character in the present, and the other is of Aguilar, his ancestor. ‘Assassin’s Creed’ not only takes place in modern day but through the use of a technology that allows one to re-live their ancestor’s memories, it also is set in 15th Century Spain.
The new stills are tagged “We work in the dark to serve the light.” on Twitter and the first gives us Fassbender’s modern-day character who he’ll be playing in 65% of the film:
The second which shows us Lynch as he is reliving the life of Aguilar for 35% of the movie in the past. This is probably the aspect most of us will be primarily interested in and sadly won’t be the bulk of the movie.
Either way, both shots look good and I’ll be curious as to how the focus on the present which apparently gives the studio more creative freedom will be taken by fans.
Are you looking forward to ‘Assassin’s Creed’? Which of the 2 new shots look more interesting to you? Share your thoughts below!
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’ will be sneaking into theaters just in time for Christmas on December 21st, 2016.
