Ubisoft has let slip a couple of new stills from Assassin’s Creed: The Movie, which is still in production (principal photography wrapped in January). The images give us more of a glimpse of Callum Lynch’s (Michael Fassbender) cell as he creates what seems to be another sketch to add to the multitude already placed on the walls.
The second image zeroes in on a few of these charcoal drawings. What are they of and what part do they play? Genetic memories, perhaps? That remains to be seen of course.
Assassin’s Creed: The Movie is adapted from Ubisoft’s monstrously successful Assassin’s Creed video game series. In the film, Callum Lynch is a modern-day descendant of the Assassin Brotherhood, the sworn enemies of the Knights Templar. Through various unlocked memories he is able to relive the experiences of Aguilar de Nerha, his ancestor from 15th century Spain and member of the Spanish Brotherhood of Assassins. Enduring these memories gives him the tools he needs to fight the Knights Templar in his own time.
Assassin’s Creed: The Movie, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, hits theaters December 21.
