Listen to a sample

A film that blends a cool sci-fi concept (technology that allows users to relive their ancestor's memories) with historical adventure

Screenrant

This is definitely Assassin's Creed with all the fast paced free-running and close combat you'd want. It might be a time period we've never seen in the games but plenty of 360 viewpoints, eagles and free running action to make us feel at home in the Spanish Inquisition

Games Radar

This isn't Star Wars, there isn't a dark side and light side. It's a grey world where both sides have to bend their beliefs at certain times. Templars can become good and Assassin's can turn

Michael Fassbender

I wanted it to be an unbelievable ride. Our story is an origin story, a man in the present day discovering he's an Assassin. It's a very rich world, the history beautifully recreated

Justin Kurzel, director of Assassin's Creed

Start getting your hopes up. The trailer is simply gorgeous

Forbes

The video game movie that might just induce glorious amnesia for those struggling to wipe clean memories of 'Prince of Persia', 'Hitman' or 'Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life'
