Twentieth Century Fox has released the second trailer for its highly anticipated Assassin's Creed film based on the popular video game. In the new footage, fans get to see more of Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) during his time at the high-tech Abstergo penitentiary-cum-research facility.
"Yeah! The party's just getting started," Fassbender says at the start of the trailer before the scene moves to Lynch being beaten and beating up the guards at the facility where he has been imprisoned.
Lynch's bloodline which can be traced to the clandestine organisation of Assassins has brought him to the attention of Abstergo Industries, which harvests its subjects' genetic memories to test its Animus Project.
The official synopsis of the movie reads as follows:
"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 organisation in the present day."
Based on the popular video game franchise, the New Regency and Ubisoft film adaptation has been directed by Justin Kurzel from a screenplay by Bill Collage, Adam Cooper, Scott Frank, and Michael Lesslie. Alongside Fassbender, the film also stars Marion Cotillard, Michael K Williams, Ariane Labed, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Charlotte Rampling and Khalid Abdalla.
Assassin's Creed is set to release in theatres on 21 December.
