Dynamic Macbeth stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard reunite with each other and director Justin Kurzel for this epic video game adaptation.
Callum Lynch (Fassbender) is a dangerous criminal scheduled for execution – but his life is saved when he’s rescued by the mysterious Abstergo Industries, the modern day equivalent of the Knights Templar. Under the instruction of scientist Sophia Rikkin (Cotillard) and her CEO father Alan (Jeremy Irons), Callum is forced to take part in the Animus Project, whereby the company taps into his genetic memories. Soon Callum is reliving the deadly, action-packed life of his 15th century ancestor Aguilar, an Assassin during the time of the Spanish Inquisition. Soon he gains the skills and knowledge to confront the present-day Templars who have him trapped.
Based on the sensational franchise, blending eye-popping visuals with star power and the vision of director Justin Kurzel, Assassin’s Creed promises to be the video game movie to end them all.
