Assassin's Creed and The Matrix

Will Assassin’s Creed break the video game movie curse? World of Warcraft might accomplish that task first, based on director Duncan Jones‘ (Moon) involvement, but later this year, if Jones’ adaptation does disappoint, then director Justin Kurzel has a real shot at shattering the curse. Kurzel reunites with Macbeth stars, Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, for this Ubisoft adaptation, which Fassbender says is “old school” and inspired by The Matrix.

X-Men Apocalypse Trailer

X-Men: Apocalypse has a huge cast of characters, some of whom are returning to roles from previous films, and quite a few of whom are inheriting younger versions of characters that appeared in the first three films. There are even a few new additions, such as Psylocke. While on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse last year we talked to many of the cast members about what is new and different for their roles in this film.

Below, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Olivia Munn, Tye Sheridan, Nicholas Hoult, and Michael Fassbender explain where their characters are in life as the new film opens. Read More »

Deadpool red-band trailer

Although X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool may belong to the same universe, they couldn’t look more different. The former promises tons of doom and gloom (as befits a movie about the lower-case-A apocalypse being waged by a capital-A Apocalypse), whereas the latter takes a much more irreverent, NSFW approach. But they do have one other thing in common: both have revealed new looks today, in advances of their releases next year. See new Deadpool photos and some intriguing X-Men concept art after the jump.  Read More »

Assassin's Creed Photo

Michael Fassbender can currently be seen slicing his way through a medieval battlefield for director Justin Kurzel in Macbeth, with Marion Cotillard at his side as his leading lady. And next Christmas season, we’ll get to see him doing the exact same thing, only in a video game adaptation rather than a Shakespeare retelling.

Based on the video game of the same title, Assassin’s Creed follows Callum Lynch (Fassbender), who discovers he’s descended from a long line of assassins. Through cutting-edge technology, he’s able to access his “genetic memories,” reliving the experiences of his ancestor, Aguilar (also Fassbender), in 15th century Spain. A new photo from the film dropped over the weekend, and now two more new photos have just hit the web as well. Check ’em out after the jump.  Read More »

Fassbender is seen in his Assassins garb alongside Ariane Labed (Before Midnight) laying on a rooftop, likely planning their next move for an assassination. Check it out below! Read More »

assassin's creed viral marketing

Director Justin Kurzel‘s Assassin’s Creed movie opens exactly one year from today and you know what that means: the marketing has begun. The adaptation of the long-running and occasionally beloved video game series has been filming for a few months now, but details of any kind have been shaky at best. Is this a direct adaptation of a single game in the franchise? A mishmash of concepts drawn from across the series and assembled into one story? A totally new storyline that will coexist alongside the rest of the games? Who is star Michael Fassbender playing, exactly? What’s up with that photo from October? Those are the questions that are on our minds now that the hype machine is slooowly starting to turn its gears.

And no, none of those questions will be answered today. But we do get a banner, a new official website, a mysterious phone number that takes you to a mysterious message. Let’s dive into the Assassin’s Creed viral marketing and see what it has to offer.
