A new official image for the highly anticipated Assassin's Creed movie has been released courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

In case you have been left out of the loop the film stars Michael Fassbender in the starring role along with an extremely talented cast. Check out the official image below along with the official synopsis.

Fassbender spoke a little bit about playing the duel roles of Lynch and Aguilar:

I’ve played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character. We’re striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We’re working hard to make this something special.
— Fassbender
