Fox has released several new images from Justin Kurzel’s (Macbeth) upcoming Assassin’s Creed film. While it’s based on Ubisoft’s popular video game franchise of the same name, the film centers on an original character not found in any of the game storylines. The film follows Lynch as he “discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.”
Brendan Gleeson, Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Ariane Labed also star. Assassin’s Creed is scheduled to hit theatres December 21, 2016. Images courtesy of The Playlist.
