Ubisoft has officially kicked off the marketing campaign, revealing a new banner for the upcoming live action movie based on the highly popular game series. 20th Century Fox has revealed the first banner for Assassin’s Creed live action movie which is set to release next year. Additionally, Fox also launched a website, Abstergo, along with the marketing campaign.

While not all video games gain high anticipation, “Assassin’s Creed” is an exception. Screenrant reported that the newly confirmed cast includes Ariane Labed, Michael K. Williams, Jeremy Irons and Brendan Gleeson. Previously, it was already confirmed that the “Assassin’s Creed” movie will feature actors Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard and Australian film director and screenwriter Justin Kurzel. All three have already teamed up in a recently released movie adaptation of “Macbeth.” The collaboration of all these stars for a film adaptation is expected to be exhilarating and something to look forward to.

The “Assassin’s Creed” movie is about a man called Callum Lynch who gets access to the memories of one of the ancestors named Aguilar. After successfully utilising the technology, Lynch starts living like a 15th century assassin. He discovers a historic war between Knight Templar and the assassins. As a descendant of the secret Assassins society, Lynch gets involved in the century-long war.

Even with the release date still slated for 2016, the team has started teasing clues via the official Twitter account. GamesRadar reported that the “Assassin’s Creed” movie team has released a pictured business card, belonging to Alan Rikkin, the fictional Abstergo Industries CEO. The business card features an email address and a phone number.

Fans that are calling those numbers get a voicemail message, and sending an email to the address brings back a reply that Rikkin is out of office. “Assassin’s Creed” could likely change the mindset of people who do not favour video game-based movies. Its popularity and Ubisoft’s close involvement may take the series to the right direction.
