I am still not convinced on this adaptation. On one hand it has Michael Fassbender who is brilliant most of the time. On the other, video game adaptations in to movies are notoriously bad. So, I am still in the “wait and see” camp. However, the first trailer has arrived officially for Assassin’s Creed the movie.

Fassbender plays Callum Lynch who finds out that he’s been saved from apparent death by an organization determined to use the memories of his ancestors, possibly for nefarious means. Traveling back in time to the memories of his assassin ancestor Aguilar de Nehra, he must develop the skills that will allow him to fight back in his own time.

Assassin’s Creed is due to hit theaters on December 21. Watch the trailer below:
