New Assassin's Creed movie screens hint at what's to come

Hopefully as the Assassin's Creed movie stealths closer - five months and counting, humans -  we won't see too much that'll spoil the movie. However, two new screens revealed on the Assassin's Creed twitter account shows a few clues of the way things are going to pan out. For one, Michael Fassbender, our man in the roles of both past and present Assassins Aguilar and Callum Lynch, can be seen wielding a crossbow in the 21st century. 

Given that he's been brought to Abstergo to show evil Templar Alan Rikkin (Jeremy Irons) where an artefact is in the past after a jaunt into the Animus, I'm pretty sure he isn't meant to be shooting a crossbow at anyone. This just further guarantees that we're going to see the collection of modern day Assassins - you can see them all in my Assassin's Creed movie cast list - in a dramatic escape from the facility. That crossbow looks distinctly like one that the guards are carrying in the below still from the trailer. Looks like Lynch has "liberated" it from one of them. 

The below screen of Aguilar doesn't have quite as much information, just further proof that Fassbender looks good in the Assassins hood in the Spanish Inquisition. The movie just needs to hide in hay until December now. 

Directed by Justin Kurzel and starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Ariane Labed, Michael K. Williams, Jeremy Irons, and Brendan Gleeson, Assassin's Creed opens in US theatres on December 21, 2016 before being released in UK cinemas on December 26, 2016.
