You might recall that I mentioned how I wasn’t too up on the whole “Assassin’s Creed” video game and its mythology and believe it or not nothing has changed with me since that first disclosure. Now despite my own lack of background we did share the official trailers for the film which is opening today in theaters everywhere care of 20th Century Fox. If you didn’t see my trailer posts you can click HERE and HERE to see what they are all about and then scroll on down past the poster to learn more about the premise and the cast of the film.
Career criminal Callum Lynch is rescued from his own execution by Abstergo Industries, the modern-day incarnation of the Templar Order. He is forced to participate in the Animus Project and relive the memories of his ancestor Aguilar de Nerha, an Assassin in the time of the Spanish Inquisition. As Lynch continues to experience Aguilar’s memories, he begins to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to confront the Templars—age-old enemies of the Assassins—in the present day. (care of Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve mentioned how I enjoy Fassbender when he does Magneto in the recent X-Men films and think that this could be a fun film, the fact that the holidays are imminent for me makes me feel that I will NOT be getting to the theater to see it on its opening day or even close around it. What about you readers? Will you be hitting the local cinema to catch this one on the big screen or are you going to wait for home video or cable release like I will probably be doing? Let me know in the comments section below because you know I love to hear your thoughts on these things.
