The video game adaptation might have just provided us a sneak peak of its much anticipated movie.
Assassin's Creed is an action adventure film that was derived from Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed the video game. The video game gained praise from various video game critics and players alike. It was also tagged as a standout series of console games selling over $73 million copies last April of 2004.
Now, the Assassin's Creed movie wants to taste the same success as the video game did. Assassin's Creed movie will be led by Michael Fassbender who is known as Magneto in X-men:Apocalypse and in Macbeth. Joining Fassbender is Marion Cotillard from The Dark Knight Rises and now linked to Brad Pitt due to the divorce scandal. Jeremy Irons (The Borgias, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) and Brendan Gleeson (Edge of Tomorrow, the Harry Potter franchise) rounds up the main cast of the Assassin's Creed movie.
New images were shown for the past week and its focus is on 15th century Spain era. Iron's character is seen to provide Fassbender, Callum Lynch a blade. There is also a picture showing Justin Kurzel, the director of Assassin's Creed, giving instructions to Cotillard or Maria as her character. "We're very lucky to be able to have a strong female character who's not just a side placement to the male lead." She is not a typical "love interest" character, but rather she has a brother/sister-type relationship with Aguilar, according to Kurzel.
Callum Lynch is the main character in the movie. Lynch has a time traveller-like powers where he can unlock his genetic memories, allowing him to experience the adventures of his ancestor 15 centuries ago. He then discovers the sacred secret of the society and the Assassins.
Less than three months to go before we'll be able to see this miovie; but it is already starting to rake in thousands of positive feedback from fans and celebrated movie critics.
