Assassin's Creed

Assassin's Creed: Michael Fassbender and Ariane Labed are featured in a new photo from Assassin's Creed. The adaptation of the video game series revolves around Fassbender, who is "kind of a cypher for all the time-traveling, first-person action in the games," though the actor admits he had never played the game before he was approached to star. (Don't worry, fans; he has now.) Justin Kurzel (Macbeth) is directing; the movie is set for release on December 21, 2016. []

Update: Check out two more Assassin's Creed images below, via Empire.

Says Fassbender, “We’re striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We’re working hard to make this something special.”
