Assassins Creed movie still featuring Michael Fassbender

Assassin’s Creed movie – the first good video game adaptation?

Movie Trailer Cast & Crew Information Asia Release Date Plot Summary

Saying video game adaptations to the big screen have had a checkered past is to put it lightly. Outside of the “Resident Evil” franchise, such adaptations have not proven to connect with audiences. Lets not even talk about how they’ve fared with critics.

The first trailer for “Assassin’s Creed” movie looks promising. They’ve got a fantastical story which lends itself brilliantly to a cinematic adaptation. To their credit the production has also managed to assemble a good cast. Lead by X-Men’s Michael Fassbender it also stars Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons and Michael K. Williams (?).

Director of last years “Macbeth”, also starring Fassbender, Justin Kurzel helms this. I never caught the latter but it did have a stunning trailer and is possesses a 79% fresh rating on RT. So many “Assassin’s Creed” will break the video game adaptatation curse.

“Assassin’s Creed” opens in America on the 21st of December 2016. In South East Asia “Assassin’s Creed” opens in Singapore cinemas on the 22nd of December 2016. Release dates for other South East Asian countries is unavailable at time of publishing.
