This Fall season is set to bring us many potentially great films, from Doctor Strange to to Fantastic Beasts and Star Wars: Rogue One. However, it may also bring us what could be the first great video-game movie in Assassin's Creed, and a new trailer and poster have arrived to prove it.

After a whole slew of bad video-game adaptations this year, from Angry Birds to Warcraft, Ratchet and Clank and more, Assassin's Creed could be the silver lining. 20th Century Fox have debuted a new trailer, so check it out below:

I am a big fan of the Assassin's Creed games, and loved what director Justin Kurzel, and stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotilard did with the visceral Macbeth last year so I'm excited to see the trio back together for this adaptation. The trailer is great and gives us some more background details on Fassbender's Lynch, as well as on the plot of the film itself. The cinematography and the action sequences look stunning and the trailer is just very, very promising. I really do think this could be the first great video-game movie in some time and I can't wait to see it.

Here's your synopsis:

Assassin’s Creed follows a character by the name of Callum Lynch who, through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, is able to experience 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.
With Justin Kurzel at the helm, and starring Michael FassbenderMarion CotilardJeremy IronsMichael K. Williams and Brendan Gleeson, Assassin's Creed is set to hit cinemas on December 21st, 2016.

Check out the new poster for the film below too, which features our leading man Michael Fassbender as modern-day Callum and assassin Aguilar. The one-sheet follows the colour tone and style of the games too, it looks awesome:
