Following up on the first official image of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange released earlier today, now’s the time for your first at another highly-anticipated upcoming adaptation featuring a beloved and talented dramatic actor in a high-profile film meant to launch a profitable new franchise. In this case, it’s Michael Fassbender in the upcoming adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, based on the popular Ubisoft game. This attempt will once again try to turn a lucrative video game series into a lucrative movie series, and while the below official image doesn’t reveal much about the action being made for the film, Fassbender still looks as bad ass intense as always.

Ubisoft‘s Assassin’s Creed movie is finally getting production rolling and thanks to Yahoo we’ve got a first look at Michael Fassbender in costume as Callum Lynch, descendant of a long line of members of a secret society of assassins. Don’t worry dedicated gamer, you’re memory isn’t failing you, Callum was not a character in any of the Assassin’s Creed games. The name was created for the movie, but I imagine it might find its way into the next video game. (more…)

Ubisoft is bringing back one of last years SDCC 2014 most popular event locations, the Assassin’s Creed Experience. Think Ninja Warrior and you’ve got the idea. This year’s course has a very British air as it will help promote Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, due out later this year. This course has all the fun Parkour type action you’d find in the game including the iconic Leap of Faith. Of course this year you’ll leap right off Big Ben! (more…)

WatchDogs-preview-1

Since its unveiling at E3 2012, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs has been one of the most anticipated games for any console, particularly this new generation of systems. The spawn of what seems to be a three-way between Assassin’s Creed, Grand Theft Auto and Infamous, Watch Dogs puts you in control of Aiden Pearce, a hacker-cum-vigilante in search of bloody retribution for the death of his niece. Delayed several times, this once launch title has finally graced American shelves. Did the delay produce a better game or simply postpone the inevitable disappointment which often accompanies a hype-beast such as this? It’s 696 miles to Chicago, we’ve got $60, a quarter tank of gas, a six pack of Red Bull, it’s night, and we’re wearing sunglasses…let’s punch it.  (more…)

This time the script writing team of Adam Cooper and Bill Collage are taking a crack at Ubisoft‘s video game franchise. (more…)
