Watch an ‘Assassin’s Creed’ stuntman perform an insane jump from 125 feet up in the air

Movies based on popular video games tend to fall into either one of two categories: they’re either so boring that we quickly forget about their existence or they’re so comically bad and unwatchable that they essentially become legendary, with 1993’s Super Mario Bros film being a prime example.

All that said, Hollywood has never been afraid to make the same mistake twice — or even 50 times for that matter — so even in 2016 we’re still being bombarded with a seemingly endless number of video game-to-movie adaptations. With the Angry Birds movie thankfully behind us, we can now turn our attention to a film that might surprise us all and actually be entertaining — Assassin’s Creed. We’ve been playing various incarnations of the game for years now, and a film based on the popular video game franchise is slated to hit theaters later this December.

The first trailer for the ‘Assassin’s Creed’ movie looks way better than you’d think

Making movies based on blockbuster video games isn’t always such a great idea, but the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film doesn’t look bad. The first trailer for the movie was just released, giving us glimpses of Callum Lynch’s story. If you’ve played the games, you’ll have fun seeing this reenactment for the big screen. If you haven’t, then you’re in for a sci-fi assassin story that takes place mostly in the 15th century.

Assassin's Creed 2017 Delay

Assassin’s Creed is taking 2016 off, which is exactly what the series needs

Assassin’s Creed is taking 2016 off, which is exactly what the series needs

Better late than never. On Thursday, Ubisoft confirmed the rumors that the Assassin’s Creed series would be taking a year off for the first time since 2008. It didn’t come as much of a surprise, as rumors of the decision had been circulating for months, but it was  a sigh of relief for fans of the flagging franchise.

If Assassin’s Creed is going to survive the generation, Ubisoft needs to take a step back and re-examine one of its biggest properties. More →

The first Assassin’s Creed movie will hit theaters December 21st, 2016

There has been a long tradition of movies based on video games in Hollywood, but the vast majority of them have been critical flops. Video game stories just don’t transition especially well to the big screen, which explains why Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and perhaps most infamously of all, Super Mario Bros. are so hard to watch.
