The epic adventure of Callum Lynch in Ubisoft's popular fiction action-adventure video game series "Assassin's Creed" is crossing screens, as a movie with the same title is set to hit theaters next year.

Regency Enterprises and director Justin Kurzel have just released a first look at the mega-budget film adaptation of the open world stealth video game series via Entertainment Weekly.

The official photo released to the magazine features Oscar nominee and "X-Men: First Class" star Michael Fassbender and Ariane Labed in their stunning Assassin robes, created by "Ant-Man" costume designer Sammy Sheldon Differ.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the film follows the story of Callum Lynch (Fassbender), who is a descendant of the mysterious secret society the Assassins, in a quest to bring back his genetic memory in order to experience the life of an ancient Assassin called "Aguilar" through the use of his Animus.

In an interview, the 38-year-old German-Irish actor admitted that he had not been very familiar with the game until he was offered the role.

"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," he told the outlet via phone.

According to Fassbender, he and the film crew are striving to make the adaptation as close to the game as possible, especially since fans are very "passionate" about the details.

"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," he added.

He also revealed some of the things he learned while playing the Assassin on set.

"I've learned how to roly poly, tumble turn. Stuff you can do in everyday life. Like cartwheels. No -- just basic fight choreography stuff. I did some horse stuff today. So stuff like that," he explained.

According to Screen Rant, the secret for the success of the historical game is the usage of settings and, of course, the whole action-packed adventure that highlights the "stylish fighting moves," including sword battles with several adversaries.

Aside from Labed, the "12 Years a Slave" star is also joined by Marion Cotillard, Brendan Gleeson, Jeremy Irons and Michael Kenneth Williams.

The "Assassin's Creed" movie adaptation is set for theatrical release on December 21, 2016.
