Not all of the Assassin's Creed movie will be in English

Because, you know, the people of 16th century Spain spoke Spanish.

The Assassin's Creed movie (not to be mistaken with "Creed") is just a few months off from its premiere. It's a movie that marks Ubisoft's entrance into the movie industry, with films based on Splinter Cell, The Division and Raving Rabbids coming thereafter. All parties involved are determined to make AC a success, and one of the ways they plan on doing this is via authenticity.

In a recent interview with Total Film, director Justin Kurzel revealed that the scenes taking place in the past will be in Spanish:

"We did play around with English as well, but it was really obvious what you wanted as soon as you went back and started speaking beautiful Spanish. It really adds an exoticness and richness to the film."

Most of the movie is set to present day, which will be in English, but as you know Michael Fassbender is reliving his ancestor Aguilar's memories from the Spanish Inquisition, and there wasn't too much English being spoken there and then (we've been told, we can't say for certain).

What are your thoughts on this, would you prefer English with a Spanish accent, or does this make for a deeper immersion? Cuéntanos qué te parece en la sección de comentarios más abajo.
