Pre-Production, 20th Century Fox

Assassin’s Creed is probably the last ‘big’ film yet to come this year, at least for those in the US. The game-come film has had a somewhat unsure marketing campaign around it, but I remain hopeful that the talent on board come through to create something good. It seems Michael Fassbender wants that too, and still has enthusiasm for the series since its completion. Speaking to Cinema Blend, the actor/producer on the film said that he wants the film to end up being a trilogy, and there are ideas of where to go after this. This is the sort of origin of his story.

Jeremy Irons Wants The Apple Of Eden In New Assassin’s Creed Trailer The newest trailer for Assassin’s Creed gives us more of the plot as Jeremy Iron’s character Rikkin tells us about the Apple of Eden. It’s an artifact that will crush any impulse for rebellion. Which means the people who are sending Cal back into his ancestor’s past are probably the bad guys… Assassin’s Creed opens in theaters December 21st.

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...

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.
