After seeing this photo I definitely have hopes for this movie, maybe not high hopes, but hopes nonetheless. Despite this image being freaking awesome, Assassin’s Creed is after all a “video game movie” and most if not all previous movies based off of video games have not done well in the box office or in the opinions of the audience. However, the way they are setting this movie up is actually giving this movie promise. A good example of this set up would be the fact that this game is based in the same universe as the popular games, yes you read that right, the Assassin’s Creed movie and video games will be in the same universe, a shared universe between big screen and your respective game console (or PC gaming rig). Personally I think this is fantastic news and I for one cannot wait for this movie to come out.

Along with the image we also received new (however limited) info on the premise of the film. Now as I stated that the Assassin’s Creed movie will be based in the same universe as the games, the movie will introduce new characters to said shared universe starting with Michael Fassbender playing Callum Lynch. For those of you that are curious, I have provided the synopsis below for your reading pleasure.

“Through a revolutionary technology Lynch unlocks his genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar. He discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Knights Templar in the present day.

That’s pretty damn vague, but then again, it’s still really early in production. I’m sure we’ll get more info over the coming months. Anyway things are looking good for Assassin’s Creed so far and I hope it only gets better. Assassin’s Creed is set to release on December 21st 2016 so mark your calendars, I know I will.
