In news that may come as a disappointment to fans of the Assassin’s Creed video games, it appears that Justin Kurzel’s big screen adaptation of the series is primarily set in present day. As most fans of the games will tell you, the best, most exciting and immersive stuff happens in the sequences set in the past. But the film could still be good, right? Michael Fassbender certainly thinks so, but he’s kind of paid to think that.

Assassin’s Creed doesn’t hit theaters until December, but it shouldn’t be much longer before the first trailer arrives to give us a proper sneak peek at what may very well be the first good video game movie. In the meantime, two new images have arrived featuring Michael Fassbender in both past and present settings — though his present state doesn’t look very optimistic.

While we wait for the first official trailer for Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft has released a new image from Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of the hit game series, giving us another look at Michael Fassbender’s Callum Lynch. Like one of the previously released stills, this one features Lynch in a prison cell, this time tending to some charcoal drawings which may be connected to his time spent accessing genetic memories of his ancestor.

It’s a bit…early…to be banking on a sequel to the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film. Justin Kurzel’s movie based on the hit video game franchise doesn’t hit theaters until December, but a new report suggests that New Regency is already plotting a second Assassin’s Creed with Michael Fassbender set to return. While the studio might just be securing their option, it’s also quite possible that Kurzel’s film is that good.

Unlike Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie, Justin Kurzel’s Assassin’s Creed seems like it may be able to appeal to a wider audience beyond the niche video game fan base. That’s thanks in part to the casting of Michael Fassbender (who doesn’t love that guy?), the hiring of Kurzel, the sci-fi / action genre appeal, and their commitment to using practical effects and stunts when and wherever possible. But just in case you need a little more convincing, Fassbender’s got you covered.

It’s the end of the year, which means lots and lots (and lots…and lots…) of features previewing 2016's highly-anticipated new releases, like Assassin’s Creed. Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of the beloved series has all the makings of a good video game adaptation; in fact, it could be the first genuinely good video game movie (your Silent Hill mileage may vary). Two new photos have arrived online giving us two different versions of Michael Fassbender for the price of one. What a bargain.

There are a few reasons to be tentatively excited about the Assassin’s Creed movie — Michael Fassbender is starring in and producing the adaptation, re-teaming with his Macbeth director Justin Kurzel and co-star Marion Cotillard for what may very well be the first truly good movie based on a video game. A new image from the film has arrived online, with Fassbender in costume as his character’s 15th century counterpart alongside co-star Ariane Labed.
