Last year, Michael Fassbender (as Callum Lynch, the descendant of an Assassin know as Aguilar) and Marion Cotillard (as Sophia Rikkin, the leader of the Animus Project) lent their talents to Ubisoft as part of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film adaptation. And now, Jimmy Kimmel has pulled back the curtain on the film’s first trailer. Eager viewers of Jimmy Kimmel Live! saw it yesterday, but the rest of us can watch right here.
Unlike most game-to-movie adaptations, Ubisoft was heavily involved in bringing Assassin’s Creed to the silver screen. Set during the Spanish Inquisition in the 15th century, Ubisoft is even planning to integrate Fassbender’s Aguilar (and the events of the film) into the franchise’s sprawling story.
Assassin’s Creed will open in theaters on December 21.
