New Images from ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Movie

Empire's New Stills

We’ve got new images of Michael Fassbender as two of the Assassin’s Creed’s main characters: Callum Lynch and Assassin Aguilar, exclusively from the good folks at Empire.

No doubt, the Justin Kurzel-directed movie is ambitious and I’d rather have a good movie, than a mediocre one that is faithful to it’s source material. Macbeth helmer Kurzel has brought his frequent collaborator Adam Arkapaw onboard as his cinematographer.

The film will have an all-original story focusing on the exploits of Aguilar, a member of the Assassin Brotherhood, in fifteenth-century Spain, as well as a storyline running parallel in the modern-day setting that has Callum Lynch reliving the memories of his ancestor and also opposing the Templar Order.

Assassin’s Creed opens in theaters on December 21, 2016 and co-stars Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael K. Williams. Check out the brand-new images from the upcoming movie in our gallery below.

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.
