At long last, fans have their first look at Assassin's Creed.
The first trailer for Ubisoft's long-awaited video game adaptation debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday, giving fans their first glimpse at Michael Fassbender playing the dual role of Callum Lynch and Aguilar—blood relatives separated by a few hundred years and connected via sci-fi technology. "Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain," according to the 20th Century Fox film's synopsis. "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."
Directed by Justin Kurzel, the film also stars Marion Cotillard as Sophia Rikkin, Brendan Gleeson as Callum Lynch's father, Jeremy Irons as Alan Rikkin, Ariane Labed as Maria and Michael K. Williams as Moussa. The trailer uses Kanye West's "I Am a God" as its soundtrack.
