Assassin's Creed Movie

Recommended Posts

+ Dragonjack +

user posted image

"The Assassin's Creed movie, starring Prometheus and X-Men: First Class's Michel Fassbender, has a release date.

 

According to BoxOfficeMojo.com, the movie is slated for release on May 22, 2015.

 

We learned of Fassbender's involvement in the film last year. It's still unclear who exactly he will be playing, but he will be adorning the iconic assassin hood, and he will be starring. We also learned earlier this year that the script for the movie will be written by Michael Lesslie, a writer who hasn't done anything particularly well-known in Hollywood yet.

 

Shortly after the announcement of the film, we put together a list of ways that film makers can avoid screwing up the adaptation"

 

I'm really looking forward on seeing this in a big screen for sure, anyone else?

Not really, games to movies always flop.

 

Doom.

Max Payne.

Hitman.

Etc.

 

List some more.

 

 

Super Mario Bros was ok but it wasn't really super Mario bros. that could have been made into any film.

I personally thought the Tekken movie was actually pretty decent, it had lots of awesome fights between recognizable characters from the game. Pretty much everything else was terrible though, so I can agree with that, although I think Ubisoft might at least try to make AC good due to how popular the series is.

 

The Silent Hill movie wasn't too bad either.

Never seen tekken movie.

 

Street fighter and mortal Kombat were okayish when I was younger, now as an adult they're pretty terrible.

 

I just think it's a bad idea and could hurt the game series more than 3 did.

Personally I can't get enough of Assassins creed. Every game is a brilliant cinematic, story driven experience. I think people complain when they see a new assassins creed trailer because they confuse it with Call of Duty. I can't wait for this film!

With an actor like Fassbender, I see a decent studio have picking this one up for production. So don't look for fail just yet. He's a talented actor and dedicated to his profession. So I see this movie as something on my list to watch. Great find!

this could certainly be a great movie.

there's no reason why not.

 

to be honest I'm not sure why Hollywood tends to screw up so many video game movies as it is.

seems like most games already have the perfect recipe for a good movie... usually. but the director almost always find a way to ruin it.

 

the Hitman film is the closest that Hollywood ever came to getting it right, and even that was pretty bad lol.gif

Still I like this.Hopefully it will be a good movie. Next Year,maybe it will save the franchise.

So who is this going to be a movie version of one of the games or an original story ?

I think they said it was going to be an original story. Something to do with Spain I think. I like that. Considering how many protagonists the game has had it's not really a problem.

I really don't want this to suck. Assassin's Creed games have been such a hit or miss. Some rock, some suck. I wanna like it.

Meet Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch in Assassin’s Creed.

Based on the massively popular — and prolific — video-game series of the same name, the movie version is set to open in theaters Dec. 21, 2016.

Before hardcore Assassin's Creed gamers start scratching their heads (and filling up the comments) about how exactly Callum Lynch fits into the game world, we can tell you that Fassbender’s character was created specifically for the film. (The movie isn’t retelling any of the existing games, but rather introducing new characters into the same world.)

Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.

Also starring Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises), Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years a Slave), and Ariane Labed (Before Midnight), cameras start rolling for Assassin's Creed on Monday. Filming is set to happen in Malta, London, and Spain.

 

Sorry for double post,but some new info on this film arrives.

Michael Fassbander is a damn good actor, and seriously, just scrolled up to see him in the outfit and f*ck me, he looks f*cking good. If he can nail this role, as well as the film overall, I want to see him win an Oscar. He's already versatile, but this would put him leagues ahead of other people.

I don't know how to process it. But I got chills as a long time AC fan when he said, "We work in the dark to serve the light..." THE f*ckING CREED!

 

I wonder how it'll fit into the continuity, isn't it supposed to fit into the games' canon?

I hope it does very well for a movie based on a video-game.

 

I wonder how the general public will react when he survives the haystack landing.

Yes, it is. That's why I was kind of surprised when Cotillard started talking about Animus - alright, it's a name even people who never played AC know, but the Animus technology has been obsolete in the games for three years now. I mean, technically, they don't even need Lynch anymore, if his "past" is really the only thing Abstergo wants. But then again, some of the footage implies that they are doing the Animus training angle like in Brohood and Rev, so that would explain it.

 

But whatever, I'm don't really care about details like this, because it looks like that they really honored the series. Everything feels just right and the visuals are really impressive (and I really need to watch Kurzel's Macbeth already). It sells the idea that they really want to aim higher than usual video game adaptations, made on the cheap by the people who never held a controller in their lives.

 

Just... a better music choice next time, please? Come on Ubi, just dig out the Revelations theme from your library again.

Cringeworthy dialogue and edgy looking characters. And from the looks of the trailer it seems more like fan-fiction than something decently made. I really don't like how it looks and I don't think this movie will the the one to break the cycle. But I'm probably still gonna see it anyway, like everyone else.

 

Maybe that's just the fault of the trailer that was obviously made to appeal to teenagers. But I'm not a fan of blatantly copying gameplay mechanics into a movie. Film makers are supposed to know what works in a movie and what doesn't and why. Source material is important, but mostly for the story and aesthetics. Look at how Marvel is treating the comics with MCU for example.

 

Gameplay mechanics shouldn't be blatantly copied. And these guys decided that the motherf*ckin' leap of faith should be in the movie. That's was just a cool gameplay mechanic. It's not something that should exist in the real world.

 

What concerns me the most is that the movie is going to be badly put together. That instead of making a solid movie with a coherent narrative and interesting characters, the story will just be an excuse to show as many video-gamey scenes as possible so that the fans can go "oh, I recognize that from the games".

I don't see what's wrong with transplanting the game's combat and movement to the movie. If anything, it made me more hyped and convinced of the film's faithfulness to the source material.

 

If it feels unrealistic to you, fair enough, but remember that Assassins being borderline metahuman is not an aspect of the gameplay. They were essentially genetic experiments, specifically bred by the First Civ. That's canon, that's real, in-universe.

I don't mind it when it's done right. Look at Bourne movies. Jason Bourne does some sh*t that normal humans could never pull off but it doesn't look ridiculous and childish and it doesn't look effortless and edgy like he's trying to impress a girl with every step he makes. It looks efficient, it looks awesome and it looks like something that can be achieved through training. This doesn't. Just because something looks effortless and choreographed in the game doesn't mean it should look like that in the movie. That's the difference between good movie making and bad movie making. Hopefully Splinter Cell movie won't make the same mistake. It shouldn't considering the director.

 

And look at that stupid Animus. What's with that robotic arm? Of all the things to change they decided to change something that makes a certain amount of sense into a nonsensical Hollywood piece of sh*t for no reason.

Music was awful and didn't fit the setting at all. Seems like an okay ish movie to me and I'll probably check it out. I also hope Ubisoft finally fixed the glitches this time.

A) the leap of faith isn't in the movie (from what you said earlier)

B) the animus was changed so that the actors can interact more with it

C) what do you mean by gameplay mechanics? Which ones?
