First glimpse at assassin’s Creed footage impresses…

Michael Fassbender in Assassin’s Creed has a really bright future. That’s judging from the reports emerging from CinemaCon in Las Vegas where the actor revealed first-look footage from his highly-anticipated video game adaptation.

The star couldn’t attend the event but sent a video message attached to a trailer which was shown to the lucky audience. Fassbender, who plays Callum Lynch, promised a “compelling story, rich characters and breathtaking action sequences.”

The film is still-unfinished but the reaction to the footage was extremely positive, with many critics taking to Twitter to praise the action and Fassbender himself.

The footage reportedly with Fassbender as Lynch in a padded hospital room where Marion Cotillard tells him ominously: “executed and presumed dead. You no longer exist.”

Cotillard’s character then says Lynch has been “implanted with the memories of someone who has been dead for 500 years.” Wow. The rest of the footage was really impressive ninja skills from Fassbender, living up to those vows of ‘breathtaking action sequences.’

The trailer is expected to be officially released next month. According to The Wrap, the footage also featured “I Am A God” by Kanye West. That’ll be interesting because we don’t usually associate the rapper with action-adventure video game adaptations.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
