I’m not much of a video game player, but this adaption of the hit game franchise has me brimming with anticipation.
Assassin’s Creed follows main character Callum Lynch as he uses futuristic technology that unlocks his genetic memories and allows him to travel back in time to 15th century Spain. This is where he takes on the role of one of his assassin ancestors, Aguilar, who had been battling the Knights Templar for centuries.
I’m not too sure what the ‘Knights Templar’ is, but the premise sounds highly interesting.
The movie is directed by Justin Kurzel, and reunites him with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, after the trio worked on this year’s splendid Macbeth adaption. Fassbender and Cotillard are joined by Jeremy Irons and Brendan Gleeson in supporting roles.
Anticipation for this film has been building for a while, as it was initially announced years ago, but I’m confident it’ll be worth the wait.
