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...

First ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Clip Sends Michael Fassbender Back in Time (Sort of) We’re less than a month away from the release of Assassin’s Creed and I can’t help but wonder if anyone outside of the faithful are prepared to lay down money to watch Michael Fassbender kind-of sort-of time travel into the distant past so he can stab people in the face. 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.

Enter the Animus with Michael Fassbender in this Assassin's Creed clip Through a revolutionary technology called "The Animus," Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day. How about that! 20th... Read More...

Can Assassin’s Creed break the “curse” of video game adaptations? It has the talent involved to pull it off, with an impressive cast led by Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, and Jeremy Irons. Director Justin Kurzel (Macbeth) has also shown a flair for compelling, visually stunning cinema. The film’s trailers suggest a spectacle of Inquisition-era action and combat, which the video game franchise is known for. Fassbender, of course, has been the main focus of the marketing push for Assassin’s Creed.

"The Assassins believe that above all else, mankind should have free will." 20th Century Fox has put out another new featurette for the Assassin's Creed movie, examining the "Creed Mythology" in an attempt to explain some of the context behind the story and what we're seeing. We know that Michael Fassbender plays Callum Lynch, an imprisoned man who is forced into an experimental sci-fi program that allows him to go back in time as his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain.

Leap Into the World of 'Assassin's Creed' With a New Featurette Horses! Tall buildings! Sword fights! Wrist knife fights! Taller buildings! Time travel (kinda)! The upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie has it all, and 20th Century Fox invites us into the world of the assassins in a new featurette. From what we’ve heard about production, the behind-the-scenes bonus features on this DVD/Blu-ray are going to be nuts: the stuntwork alone is worth a movie all on its own. Continue reading…

Watch: Michael Fassbender Becomes an Assassin in Wild New 'Assassin's Creed' Trailer Video game adaptations don't have the greatest track record, but Michael Fassbender is looking to do something about that with this December's Assassin's Creed, a big-screen adaptation of the popular game about a badass assassin whose wicked skills span centuries. A new trailer for the film has arrived, detailing more of its heady story about a criminal whose death is faked in order for him to enter into a secret program that puts him in the mind of his ancestor, an assassin...Read MoreRead Comments

New ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Images Feature a Michael Fassbender For All Occasions Despite the best intentions of everyone involved, Warcraft failed to break the dreaded video game movie curse a few months ago. Still, there’s something to be said for a video game adaptation being an interesting and well-intentioned failure and not a raging garbage fire, as is often the default with this kind of movie. But with Warcraft disappearing into the horizon behind us, we must look forward to the next  movie that will hopefully change the fortunes of the video game adaptation: Assassin’s Creed. Honestly, it could go either way.

Michael Fassbender shows off his skills in these new Assassin's Creed images When Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) explores the memories of his ancestor Aguilar and gains the skills of a Master Assassin, he discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society.
