New 'Assassin's Creed' Images Take Michael Fassbender to Past and Present

Michael Fassbender plays double duty once again, as 15th-century swordsman Aguilar and his present-day descendant Callum Lynch, in the latest photos from "Assassin's Creed."

Inspired by Ubisoft's blockbuster video game franchise, the Fox action-adventure introduces Lynch, who, through a revolutionary technology that unlocks genetic memories, is able to experience the life of his ancestor Aguilar in 15th-century Spain. He discovers he's descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.

Directed by Justin Kurzel, "Assassin's Creed" also stars Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, Jeremy Irons and Brendan Gleeson. The film opens Dec. 21.
