Check out the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate movie trailer.
This movie will be based on the Assassin’s Creed games. The history of Assassin’s Creed can get complicated, but the overall premise is about a very old conflict between two secret societies: the Assassins and the Knights Templar. The Assassins wants free-will for humans and the Templar wants to ensure peace through control. In the movie, we meet a man, named Callum Lynch (actor Michael Fassbender). He is a criminal who discovers he is the descendant of an assassin named Aguilar de Nerha. Through genetic memories from the Animus, he experiences memories from his ancestor, Aguilar, during the Spanish Inquisition. He then acquires knowledge, skills, and abilities to take on the antagonistic Templar.
The movie looks action-packed and fans of the games will certainly enjoy classic Assassin Creed elements such as: the combat, athletic maneuvering (e.g., roof-hopping from building to building and free running), the hidden blade gauntlet, the costumes, and of course, the leap of faith!
Let’s just hope the plot will live up the well-loved game. Our favorite line so far is, “We must work in the dark to serve the light”. Gave us chills. It will be released in the United States on December 21, 2016.
Let us know in the comments if you will check out the movie when it comes to a theater near you.
