Viral marketing is officially underway for next year's "Assassin's Creed" movie -- which comes out exactly one year from today -- with the launch of the Abstergo website (modelled after the fictional organization from the video game series) and release of the official banner for the film.
Along with the Abstergo site and banner, the film's official Twitter account released the following image of a stack of business cards that belong to Abstergo CEO Alan Rikkin:

What's worth noting is the phone number listed on the business cards, which may give a hint at the day we can expect the first trailer. According to SuperHeroHype, the number actually works, and if you call it, you'll hear the following voicemail message: "Hello, you’ve reached the voicemail of Alan Rikkin...I’ll be out of the office on business until March 25 with limited availability."
March 25 also happens to be the release date of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."
Directed by Justin Kurrzel ("Macbeth"), and starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Ariane Labed, Michael K. Williams, Jeremy Irons and Brendan Gleeson, "Assassin's Creed" hits theatres December 21, 2016.
