Assassin’s Creed Movie
Assassin’s Creed: See the highest freefall by a stuntman in the movie
Assassin’s Creed movie is directly related to the video game of the same name but the story is re-written for movie. Aymar Azaizia, who is head of game’s content, said the story is new but set in the universe created for the game. He further maintained that the movie can accommodate more characters than the game.
Fassbender, the lead actor of the movie, shares similar views with the Aymar Azaizia. He said that the elements of the game were used but they wanted to create different elements for the movie. For instance, Animus machine used in the game to remind one of his ancestors was redesigned for the movie. Fassbender also revealed that Ubisoft, the creator of the game, is interested in incorporating some of the movie elements into the game.
An interesting moment in the movie is “Leap of Faith” jump. Fassbender’s stunt double performed the jump. It is 125 feet free-fall and could be safely filmed with the help of digital double but the stuntman did the job and it is 35 years that a stuntman took such a high free-fall. There are many such moments in the movie as the producers wanted to make the movie as real as possible.
Plot of the movie is heavily based on the game and only little changes are made to make it more interesting. Callum Lynch is a career criminal and is about to be killed but he’s rescued by Abstergo Industries that is modern day incarnation of the Templar Order. He’s forced to relive life of his ancestors through Animum Project. His ancestors are Aguilar de Nerha and they are always with war with Templar Order. As he gains consciousness, he realizes the objective of the Abstergo Industries. Fresh with the memories of his ancestors, Callum Lynch starts collecting knowledge and developing skills to check the growth of his age old enemies, Templar Order.
Assassin’s Creed first look & poster
Google has the poster in which Callum Lynch is shown in two faces. The poster is divided into two parts. The left part has the face of an Assassin and the right part has face of modern day Callum Lynch. The Assassin is holding a sharp weapon in his hand and his fist is visible. In the backdrop, there is ancient Spain. On right side, the Callum Lynch is shown calm as he’s pondering over a serious matter. Wikipedia poster shows Assassins with their weapons and there is a message written on top of the poster.
