Assassin's Creed

WATCH: Epic First Trailer For ‘Assassin’s Creed’

Will Assassin’s Creed be the first truly great video game movie? We’ll have to wait until the film’s Dec. 21 release date to know for sure, but this first trailer shows promise.

Assassin’s Creed stars Michael Fassbender in the dual role of Callum Lynch and Aguilar — blood relatives separated by centuries and connected through the Animus, a machine that allows Callum to relive the memories of the assassin Aguilar. If you’ve played one of the many Assassin’s Creed games released since 2007, you have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
