A lot of people do not realize the depths a good video game goes into to create a story-line that’s informative, creative and original. All gamers will agree that no video game movie created so far is worth any award. Tekken, Super Mario, Mortal Kombat were all disasters on screen. The most we can expect is a functional adaptation which maybe mediocre but technically proficient like the Resident Evil series or Prince of Persia. However, we may have 10 upcoming video game movies that might just outshine the source materials.
Set 65% in the present day and 35% in the film’s Animus-assisted 15th century Spain, the movie adaptation directed by Justin Kurzel has Michael Fassbender playing Callum Lynch. Fassbender told IGN recently that there are certain things that they absolutely want to respect in the game but they also want to bring new elements to the game. He stated, “We’re trying to make a cinematic experience, so there are new things that we have to introduce.” Assassin’s Creed will hit the theatres on December 21, 2016
