Assassin's Creed: Michael Fassbender leaps into action in new clip

Posted on

Assassin’s Creed is providing a dose of blockbuster action this December, and a new clip gives a glimpse at just how action-packed the Michael Fassbender-starring film will be.

 

The adaptation of the best-selling video game property sees the actor as a new character named Callum Lynch, who experiences the thrilling adventures of his assassin ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th century Spain. One such adventure sees the hooded warrior in a death-defying horse chase to save a child from some nefarious figures. 

Ariane Labed is also seen here as a fellow assassin. The cast is rounded out by Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael K. Williams. The film marks a Macbeth reunion: Assassin’s Creed director Justin Kurzel helmed an adaptation of the Shakespeare play starring both Fassbender and Cotillard. 

Assassin’s Creed arrives in theaters Dec. 21. Watch the clip above.
