Hoping to break the video game movie curse Justin Kurzel and Michael Fassbender, fresh and bloodied from last year’s stirring Macbeth, are taking on one of gaming’s most recent success stories – Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed.
Though the big secret of the game’s world has long been given up there’s a wide world of targeted murder out there to play with. The new images below give an idea of exactly what to expect later on in the year.
The film also stars Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Ariane Labed and Kurzel’s cinematic eye is as sharp as a 15th century Milanese Sword.
The film is released on December 21st, 2016 so it’s got a Rogue One sated audience to contend with. Game on.
