Assassin's Creed

Assassin's Creed is a movie that we have been looking forward to for some time here at FemaleFirst and it is set to be the first must-see movie of next year.

The movie is based on the popular computer game of the same name and sees Oscar-nominated actor Michael Fassbender take on the central role of Callum Lynch.

Fassbender, who is also serving as producer on the film, reunites with filmmaker Justin Kurzel for their second film project together; they previously worked on Macbeth.

Assassin's Creed is the third feature film of Kurzel's directing career and comes after success with Snowton and Macbeth - needless to say, this is the biggest film of his career to date.

The filmmaker has brought together an impressive cast as Marion Cotillard - who also starred in Macbeth - Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Khalid Abdalla, Michael K. Williams, and Ariane Labed all star alongside Fassbender.

Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain.

Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.

It is fair to say that computer game movies have not had the biggest success at the box office over the years... but Assassin's Creed could be the film to change all of that.

Assassin's Creed is released 1st January 2017.
