The Assassin’s Creed movie would be out this December and 20th Century Fox has release new trailers to amp up the hype for the movie.
The movie is set to release on the 21st of December in American shores, and January 1 in the UK. First announced May 2013, The original Assassin’s Creed movie release date was set on May 22, 2015. Fans aren’t complaining though, as the delay meant better graphics and a more engaging story. Hopefully, the current release date doesn’t get moved any further.
To whet fans’ appetites, two new trailers were released this week. Watch them below.
Judging from the trailers above, things look quite impressive for the Assassin’s Creed movie so far.
The plot and casting for the Assassin’s Creed movie is posted on its official website. Based on the plot and visuals alone, the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie would definitely stay close to its source material.
The problem with most video game to movie adaptations is them straying away from the original material. Either they visually look okay, but plot wise had strayed away from the game, or vice versa. At worst, the only recognizable thing to even consider it an adaptation of a video game is its name.
That surely won’t be the case with the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.
The movie wouldn’t be a direct adaptation of any of the existing games. But it could still be possibly tied to the main universe of the game. The nature of the Animus made this entirely possible. So the Assassin’s Creed movie might still be canonical to the game universe.
The main character for the story would be Callum Lynch. Callum Lynch would be portrayed by Michael Fassbender, who portrayed the young Magneto in X-Men: First Class, and Stelios in 300.
What seals the deal that this adaptation of the game wouldn’t suck is that Ubisoft itself is directly involved with the film.
