Unlike Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie, Justin Kurzel’s Assassin’s Creed seems like it may be able to appeal to a wider audience beyond the niche video game fan base. That’s thanks in part to the casting of Michael Fassbender (who doesn’t love that guy?), the hiring of Kurzel, the sci-fi / action genre appeal, and their commitment to using practical effects and stunts when and wherever possible. But just in case you need a little more convincing, Fassbender’s got you covered.
It’s the end of the year, which means lots and lots (and lots…and lots…) of features previewing 2016's highly-anticipated new releases, like Assassin’s Creed. Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of the beloved series has all the makings of a good video game adaptation; in fact, it could be the first genuinely good video game movie (your Silent Hill mileage may vary). Two new photos have arrived online giving us two different versions of Michael Fassbender for the price of one. What a bargain.
There are a few reasons to be tentatively excited about the Assassin’s Creed movie — Michael Fassbender is starring in and producing the adaptation, re-teaming with his Macbeth director Justin Kurzel and co-star Marion Cotillard for what may very well be the first truly good movie based on a video game. A new image from the film has arrived online, with Fassbender in costume as his character’s 15th century counterpart alongside co-star Ariane Labed.
Assassin’s Creed has officially begun its marketing campaign, revealing a new banner for the upcoming live-action film based on the popular video game. In addition to the simple banner image, 20th Century Fox has launched its viral marketing, which includes a new website and an image that leads to a very interesting message…that might reveal when we’ll see the first trailer.
Marion Cotillard has already proven herself one of the great French actresses of our time, and also one who never ceases to captivate us. In the latest reimagining of Macbeth, Cotillard takes on the Shakespeare tragedy with a sheer, haunting force as Lady Macbeth.
Michael Fassbender is currently in production on Assassin’s Creed, the long-awaited adaptation of the hit video game series. But “Progress requires sacrifice,” or at least that’s what we’re led to believe in the first photo from the set of the film, which reunites Fassbender with his Macbeth director Justin Kurzel and co-star Marion Cotillard — and with that kind of talent in front of and behind the camera, we may be looking at the first genuinely good video game adaptation.
It feels like Michael Fassbender has been attached to an Assassin’s Creed movie for years, to the point where we began to wonder whether this movie would ever actually exist (it at one point was scheduled to open in theaters three months ago). But...
Omar comin’…to the Assassin’s Creed movie. Earlier today we reported on Michael K. Williams’ casting in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, but the actor has also lined up another role in a big franchise film. Williams has joined the cast of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie from director Justin Kurzel.
Warner Bros. will have a pretty big presence at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas next week, and the studio has already begun teasing some of the properties they’re bringing to the convention with new promo images for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Angry Birds Movie and Assassin’s Creed. Want another look at that new Batmobile? Sure you do.
Alicia Vikander has been acting for several years now, but it was only with her recent roles in Ex Machina and Son of a Gun that she finally earned some major attention. Audiences are about to get even more Vikander, as the actress is being targeted for two major upcoming films: the big screen version of the hit video game Assassin’s Creed, as well as the fifth installment in the Bourne franchise.
