The mysterious and long-delayed Assassin’s Creed movie at last has a concrete release date, and will be arriving in cinemas across the globe on 21st December 2016, provided the Templars don’t throw a spanner in the works.

The film is being created by 20th Century Fox in conjunction with Ubisoft, and features a genuine Hollywood star in the shape of Michael Fassbender, so it’s already off to a better start than the legions of Uwe Boll movies. It’s being directed by indie filmmaker Justin Kurzel, who’s pretty unknown to me but a quick glance at IMDB reveals he’s won all sorts of awards at various film festivals.

In terms of the actual plot of the movie and how it will tie into the games, that is still very much unknown. The Assassin’s Creed film could go one of two ways with this, offering up a retelling of one of the tales seen so far in the series, of attempting an entirely new adventure. Of course there's surely going to be a game of the movie of the game, game-ception. At any rate, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Altair rear his head at some point.

The new release date has the Assassin’s Creed movie adaptation arriving just one week after next year’s Star Wars movie, which could prove quite the challenge to best at the box office. Could Kurzel accomplish the seemingly impossible and make a genuinely good videogame movie adaptation? Or will this be just another Super Mario Bros.?

Michael Fassbender, who's that? A quick check on imdb and I see I've never seen anything he's been in. I hope he's good, and that Altair is in the movie.

Michael Fassbender can make a horrible movie entertaining. I'm glad they signed him up for this.

For me give a retelling of the first AC less boringly I played it for 3 hours and could barely understand what the characters said and there were no subtitles plus the gameplay just ruined it.On the other hand the short movies were very good by them so a possible setting is of project legacy I am hoping it ti be a nice place like Europe. Russia could also work it was just in a comic and could easily reach the masses.
