Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael 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.There sure is a lot of jumping off rooftops in this trailer! You'd never guess it was based off of a video game, right?
I know next-to-nothing about the Assassin's Creed franchise (except that it exists and involves some kind of Matrix-like technology to insert people into their ancestor's bodies and then go off and kill people), which makes the trailer slightly confusing.
But I'm guessing the movie will clear things up... and there'll be a lot of jumping off of rooftops, if nothing else!
