“These sort of films tend to be… If you’re doing over the 100 million [US dollar] mark, in general people are looking for a series of films,” Michael added. “So the universe of Assassin’s Creed allows us to go forward and make some more films, depending obviously on how this one does.”

“When I worked with Justin the first time, and all these amazing people he brought with him to work on Macbeth, I just had a very, very strong experience,” Marion added. “Justin is definitely one of the best directors I’ve worked with so I was super excited and happy to get to work with him again on this very different project.”

Michael Fassbender gives a time out on the cover of Esquire magazine’s December/January 2016 cover story.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On if he’s a gamer after starring in Assassin’s Creed: “The last time I had a serious stint with video games was 2000. There was a period of time where I was working in this warehouse at night. I would come home in the morning and just sit down in front of this racing game—I can’t even remember the name of it—and play it over and over.”

On his family: “They’re very much a part of who I am. Somebody was asking me…when I do emotional scenes, how do I go about getting there? What I do more often than not is pray to relatives who are gone. I feel like they are there with me. There are times in life where I’ve just thought, Somebody was looking after me there. Somebody was looking out for me.”

On playing Steve Jobs in Jobs: “I always liked him. I never wanted to represent him in a vile way. When I watch [the film] now, I just see someone who found it difficult to come to terms with other people.”
