Yesterday brought us the first official still from Justin Kurzel's ASSASSIN'S CREED, showing us Michael Fassbender in his lovely Assassin's garb. The man seems intent on pleasing fans of the series, even going as far as playing the games to get into the "physicality of the character." If that'll help him jump into a haystack from 100 feet, I'm all for it! Still, Empire has dropped a few more pictures, showing off his dual roles as the 15th-century Aguilar and his "modern day" Callum Lynch. Take a look!

While the novelty of the games has worn off several entries ago, I'd say that the concept of experiencing an ancestor's life through the means of a machine is a pretty awesome idea for a film. Given the critical success of MACBETH, Kurzel and Co. have a really good shot at bringing us a legit movie next December. That is, if they still decide to release it one week after Gareth Edwards' ROGUE ONE!

ASSASSIN'S CREED is currently scheduled to hit theaters on December 21, 2016.

It looks like an adaption of the first game. Wish they would've taken the basic concept of reliving your ancestor's memories and created an original story with it. The assassinations are fun b/c it's a video game. The idea could be made into much more. Hoping to be surprised with first trailer.

They did create an original story. The movie is set in Spain, not in Iran during the Crusades like the first game.

It's not new that Fassbender will do a lot to get into his character (Hunger, 12 Years a Slave). I just hope its more than his character in this that will be good.

Spell Check, PLEASE!

I like the way this movie is shaping up.
On an unrelated note, why don't any of the writers for joblo.com use spell check or proofread their articles before putting them up? "While the novel of the games has worn off". Seriously? You can't see that 'novel' should be 'novelty'?

Cautiously Optimistic

This looks like it could be awesome. But could also be another Prince of Persia. I believe in you Fassbender.

He said he didn't play them until after getting the role. He wanted to see the physicality of the role through playing the games. That's great that he did it.

Yeah I got that...just being sarcastic. The way it was written made it sound like some unbelievable thing, like what else (aside from the script) is the actor going to use for research...
