The first trailer for the Assassin’s Creed movie was released by 20th Century Fox today. The footage shows scenes from a present day setting, as well as glimpses at 15th Century Spain. Several action scenes are also featured, set to the song I Am A God by Kanye West featuring God. Watch the trailer for yourself in the embedded video below.
Assassin’s Creed will be released in December. It stars Michael Fassbender, who plays two roles: Callum Lynch and his 15th century Spanish assassin ancestor Aguillar. The film is directed by Justin Kurzel, who directed the critically acclaimed 2015 film Macbeth. Marion Cotillard, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Jeremy Irons are also appearing in the film.
Earlier this year Ubisoft announced it was making a “VR experience” for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie. No details are available to what this entails, but it is being made “alongside the movie.” Ubisoft and Fox are reportedly already planning a sequel to the film, with Fassbender said to be coming back.
