Michael Fassbender has a lot to learn about assassin-ing for Assassin’s Creed, and a recent clip introducing the new Animus didn’t make his prospects look very promising. But today’s new clip shows a much more capable Callum Lynch/Aguilar, who is a lot more confident in his physics-defying parkour skills. Continue reading…

‘Assassin’s Creed’ Clip: Michael Fassbender Has a Carriage to Catch The 2016 edition of The Game Awards were held last night (Blizzard’s Overwatch was the big winner, for the record) and 20th Century Fox used this celebration of the best in video games to advertise Assassin’s Creed, their upcoming video game movie adaptation starring Michael Fassbender.

New Assassin's Creed featurette explores the science of the Animus Although Duncan Jones' WARCRAFT can count itself as the highest grossing video-game movie of all-time, it certainly wasn't the hit that Legendary Pictures was hoping it would be and did little to break the so-called "video-game curse". There's still a chance that the curse could break before the final petal of 2016 falls, as Justin Kurzel's... Read More...

New DOCTOR STRANGE Concept Art Teases A More Comic-Accurate Design For The Villainous Dormammu Marvel's Doctor Strange continues to bust blocks worldwide  (recently passing the $600 million mark to become the studio's highest grossing single-character debut ever), with most fans and critics agreeing that the movie is pretty great - but some elements of The Sorcerer Supreme's big-screen did come in for some backlash; most notably its depiction of The Dread Dormammu. Towards the end of the movie we finally see the villain in all his otherworldly glory, and while certain aspects of his original comic book appearance are clearly visible, he was basically just a giant, angr

9-Minute International Trailer For  Zhang Yimou's THE GREAT WALL Starring Matt Damon Released This latest trailer for The Great Wall is actually made up of a few different promos for the film.

While these video games have a strong following (and a few of them have been genuinely great), I’ve yet to encounter any non-gamers who have greeted the trailers with anything more than a shrug.

This Christmas will see a lot of big releases, but one that has potential to be YUGE is the upcoming romantic/sci-fi flick, PASSENGERS.
