Michael Fassbender Time-Travels to the Spanish Inquisition in New ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Trailer

Michael Fassbender’s career criminal character Callum Lynch is heading back 500 years in the new “Assassin’s Creed” trailer.

“Welcome to the Spanish Inquisition,” he’s told on an operating table by a mysterious woman in a white robe, played by Marion Cotillard. The movie’s story centers on Lynch being forced to have his genetic memories unlocked and experience the adventures of his ancestor in 15th century Spain as part of a secret society — The Assassins — which opposes the Templars.

“What do you want from me?” he asks in the trailer. “Your past,” Cotillard’s character responds.

The film is directed by Justin Kurzel and produced by New Regency, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, DMC Films and Kennedy/Marshall. It’s based on the popular 9-year-old video game franchise.

“Assassin’s Creed” co-stars Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson and Michael K. Williams.

It opens in theaters on December 21, 2016. Check out the official trailer below.
