It’s one of 2016’s most anticipated end of year blockbusters with the early trailers promising a visceral action experience, and now Assassin’s Creed star Michael Fassbender has opened up about the film and his role in a new interview with ABC.
Check it out below:
Fassbender was quizzed about the film’s inventive parkour scenes and said that he enjoyed learning how to run up walls. Of the experience, Fassbender said “all of it was pretty new to me to be honest. It’s fun to be able to run up a wall, which you sought of think to yourself well that’s not possible, but using all the correct techniques you make it possible.”
Fassbender also discussed how the script’s ideas of things like DNA memory drew him to the project, and that he felt it “just made sense”. He also said that he had a lot of respect for producers now as he had to juggle an incredible workload as both star and producer.
After admitting he has played Assassin’s Creed “badly” in the past, Fassbender reassured that director Justin Kurzel and the production team have worked hard to capture the essence of the games, as well as bringing something new to the franchise.
Assassin’s Creed will be released in cinemas on December 21 in the US, January 1, 2017 in New Zealand and Australia, and January 6, 2017 in the UK.
