New Assassin’s Creed Photos Show Michael Fassbender in Action

After yesterday’s post about star Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Prometheus) playing Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed games to get in fighting shape for the movie adaptation, Empire has now released two more photos showing all that hard work at the console finally paying off. You can check out the new Assassin’s Creed photos, featuring Fassbender as both Callum Lynch and his ancestor Aguilar, in the gallery below!

Fassbender leads the cast of Assassin’s Creed and is joined by Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight RisesInception), Michael K. Williams (“The Wire,” Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters), Jeremy Irons (“The Borgias”) and Brendan Gleeson (Edge of Tomorrow). Justin Kurrzel (Macbeth) is directing the film.

The Assassin’s Creed movie 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 Templar organization in the present day.

Assassin’s Creed is set for a December 21, 2016 release.
