Feast Your Eyes on the New ‘Assassin’s Creed’ International Poster
Yep, that Assassin’s Creed movie is still happening, and yes, it still stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, and Jeremy Irons. To remind us all that this is indeed taking place, 20th Century Fox has released a new international poster for the movie, which has all of the secondary characters stacked on top of each other to create one giant Fassbender.
Fassbender’s Callum Lynch and his wrist knives are front and center, with Cotillard’s Sophia Rikkin, Jeremy Irons as her father Alan, and Ariane Labed’s Maria. The poster also features Denis Menochet, who’s playing the Abstergo Head of Security, according to IMDB, which is the international organization that acts as the front of the modern day Templar Order. Menochet’s character doesn’t have a name and he hasn’t been prominently featured in any of the trailers, so Fox may have just put him on the poster because he’d be more recognizable to European audiences. Or, maybe, his character is on the poster because he’s one of the main antagonists of the movie who’s so far been hidden from us in all the promotional material.
The poster also includes the tagline “nuestro destino esta en su sangre,” which, translated, means “our destiny is in his blood.” Looks like our boy Callum is doing a little more than just going back in time to jump off of tall buildings.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Assassin’s Creed is directed by Justin Kurzel and hits theaters December 21.
