'Assassin's Creed' Movie Adaptation, Premiere, News & Update: Final Trailer Released
Weeks before the movie adaptation of "Assassin's Creed" premieres on the big screen, 20th Century Fox has finally unveiled the third trailer for the film. The two and a half minute trailer features "X-Men: First Class" star Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch, his present day character.
So far, the third "Assassin's Creed" trailer is looking good. Will this movie change the game for video game film adaptations?
The "Assassin's Creed" trailer kicks off with an introduction on the Apple of Eden. Fans know well that the video game's backstory relies on it so much. Jeremy Irons' (who plays the character of Alan Rikkin) voice, can be heard explaining the templar's desire for the artifact that allows them to save the mankind.
In the third "Assassin's Creed" trailer released by the 20th Century Fox on Youtube, Callum was shown being kidnapped. He is also forced to remember the memories of his ancestor through a revolutionary technology. He discovers that he is a descendant of Aguilar de Nerha.
Aguilar is one of the members of the Assasssins, a mysterious confidential society. His thoughts and actions are so strong that Callum even felt it while undergoing the Animus treatment. That, of course, holds the key to his survival and the world's future.
He then finds out that he is not the only one undergoing the Animus treatment. Michael K. Williams briefly appeared in the "Assassin's Creed" movie trailer, playing the character of Moussa. The clip also showed Williams playing the character of Baptiste in the 15th century.
Callum and Moussa's alliance on the "Assassin's Creed" movie still remains under wraps. However, in the trailer it looks as though they will join forces as the story progresses.
Furthermore, it can be seen in the sneak peek that the "Assassin's Creed" movie sticked to the video game's original premise. Fans will still have to wait a few weeks as the film adaptation will premiere on December 21.
