Michael Fassbender wreaks havoc in the first trailer for Assassin’s Creed, the new movie based on the video game franchise of the same name.
The clip — which premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday — stars Fassbender as Callum Lynch, a career criminal whose execution is faked so that he can be used by the nefarious Abstergo Industries. Led by Marion Cotillard’s character, Sophia Rikkin, the group straps Lynch to a machine called the Animus, which sends him back in time so that they can mine the memories of his assassin ancestor, Aguilar.
The machine rips Lynch to the last place he’d ever expect: The Spanish Inquisition. Set to Kanye West’s “I Am a God,” the rest of the trailer showcases several outrageous action sequences.
Assassin’s Creed was directed by Justin Kurzel and also stars Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson and Michael Kenneth Williams. The movie opens December 21st.
