Feature: Assassin’s Creed

A new featurette has appeared for the Michael Fassbender-starring adaptation of Assassin’s Creed and it’s all about the movie’s mythology. If you’re familiar with the games, there might not be a lot of brand new information here, but there’s some interesting-looking footage, and both Fassbender (X-Men: Days Of Future Past, 12 Years A Slave) and co-star Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, La Vie En Rose) wax lyrical on the movie’s premise.

Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences 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.

Cast: Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Michael K. Williams
