Fox Launches Two New Assassin’s Creed Movie TV Trailer; Michael Fassbender Seen Playing Darker Roles [VIDEO]
With the highly anticipated movie adaptation of the popular video game Assassin's Creed coming very soon, Fox launched two more trailers for TV. Michael Fassbender plays a darker role in this new film as seen in these new trailers.
The new trailers, titled "Destined for Great Things" and "Everything is Permitted" shows Fassbender playing the role of Callum Lynch, whose ancestor was an assassin in 15th century Spain, Game Spot reported. The movie is set for release on December 21, 2016, just a week after "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" hits cinema.
First Clip With Fassbender in the Animus
Fox has also launched the first clip from the movie, which they hope would excite fans and bring in more audience, Film reported. The clip shows Lynch being hooked up to the sort-of time travel machine called the Animus. The scene also includes Marion Cotillard's Dr. Sophia Rikkin who explains that the machine will bring Lynch's consciousness back to his assassin ancestor who lived 500 years ago.
According to reports, the movie will serve as a companion piece to the rest of the video game franchise, instead of an adaptation. The machine itself somehow takes the feel of the movie away from the games, as the Animus somehow looks like a giant hospital equipment that Apple designed.
However, in an era of virtual reality, it would be logical to give the machine the look of an enormous robot claw. This could be a good choice, because Lynch is not going back to the past, instead he will be living the life of his assassin ancestor, like being in a virtual reality game.
Fassbender Plays a Darker Role
According to reports, Fassbender said he will be playing a darker and more ambiguous character. The assassin he will be playing is not like a Jedi Knight in the Star Wars saga that is inclined in the light side.
The Assassin has ambiguous moral role, unlike the light and dark side of the Star Wars saga. The characters in Assassin's Creed can't simply be labelled as good or bad. And this could be more provocative for audiences, Fassbender said.
