Michael Fassbender looks intense in the first image from Assassin’s Creed
Even though I’m not very good at it, I’ve always liked the Assassin’s Creed video game. It’s actually a pretty cool story and opens up a huge world of assassins throughout time. Will that work in a movie? I have no idea. But if you’re going to take a high concept video game and turn it into a movie, it’s a good idea to have Michael Fassbender leading the way. Today we get our first look at Fassy in costume as the famed assassin and he looks pretty tough. It’s not much to go on as far as judging the movie, but so far, so good.
The official synopsis for ASSASSIN’S CREED: Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain.
