Assassin’s Creed Movie Reportedly Clocks in at 2 Hours in Length
When Justin Kurzel’s long-anticipated Assassin’s Creed movie scurries into theaters this December, it’ll run for a total of 120 minutes, and that’s excluding trailers and advertisements.
That’s according to a listing by UK chain Empire Cinemas, which reveals that the upcoming video game movie is yet to be certified by the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification). Largely set during the Spanish Inquisition and heralding a reunion between Macbeth director Kurzel and Michael Fassbender — not to mention Marion Cotillard — moviegoers can anticipate a fair amount of fantasy violence and action in two months’ time.
Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is 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 will dive into theaters on December 21 in the States. Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Khalid Abdalla and Michael K. Williams also star.
