The Blade That Killed Callum’s Mother – New Clip From Assassin’s Creed

In this new clip from Assassin’s Creed, Rikkin (Jeremy Irons) seems to be messing with Callum (Michael Fassbender) by showing him the blade that his father used to kill his mother in front of him. 2016 seems to be the year of Jeremy Irons prodding dangerous men.

Michael Fassbender Wants Assassin’s Creed To Be A Trilogy

Assassin’s Creed is probably the last ‘big’ film yet to come this year, at least for those in the US.

New Assassin’s Creed TV Spot Finally Gets The Tone Right

I have faith in the Assassin’s Creed movie. It think the franchise’s concept is strong, and the talent involved is more than enough to utilise that.
