Michael_Fassbender_by_Gage_Skidmore_2015It’s finally here! The first teaser to “Assassin’s Creed” starring Michael Fassbender has been released.

“Assassin’s Creed” is based off a video game with the same title. It was created by Ubisoft and has spawn a few versions to become a very popular game series. The movie follows the same storyline as the game, which is about a man who has the skills and the prowess to absorb the skills of his ancestors. Only, his ancestors are part of a group of assassins.

Apart from Fassbender, the film also stars Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, Ariane Labed, Jeremy Irons, and Brendan Gleeson. The movie is directed by Justin Jurzel, with screen writers Bill Collage, Adam Cooper, Scott Frank, and Michael Lesslie.

Here is a synopsis of the “Assassin’s Creed” story from Ubisoft: “Every Assassin’s Creed game tells two intertwining stories. One is of an Assassin and their adventures in the past, and the other is of a person in the present who’s experiencing that Assassin’s “genetic memories” through a device known as the Animus, or more recently as Helix. While the historical Assassins inhabit mostly self-contained stories that link together across centuries, the present-day storyline has continued in a more or less linear fashion since the series began.”

“Assassin’s Creed” will debut in theaters on December 21. Here is the video of the teaser below:
