Ubisoft gets weirdly specific about the release date of blockbuster franchise Assassin’s Creed blockbuster theater opening night. Despite a slew of high profile video game films recently stalled or even outright cancelled (Bioshock, Uncharted and World of Warcraft come to mind), Regency Films and Ubisoft Motion Pictures are keen to bring this one home.
The fact that leading man Michael Fassbender was genuinely excited about the role might have helped speed things along. Fassbender’s character “learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret org with ties to the Knights Templar, and sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts,” Variety wrote last year.
