Assassin’s Creed Movie is going to be a milestone from which all succeeding video game movies will be measured. While most video game movies go between mediocre and worst, this new one from Ubisoft will “break history,” Azaizia Aymar, the movie’s brand director, said in an interview quoted by Gamespot.
A week before Assassin’s Creed formally opens in theaters on Dec. 21, the stars and director appeared on Xbox livestream to talk about the film and what their aspirations are for it. The movie stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, and Michael Kenneth Williams. Justin Kurzel directed the movie.
Assassin’s Creed Movie will have sequels?
As the star and producer of Assassin’s Creed Movie, Fassbender has a lot to lose and gain. But, he has high hopes for the movie and certainly trusts the people behind it. Reports said he signed on for multiple sequels in the future.
While a number of video games translated to the silver screen were mediocre at best, Aymar made a prediction that Assassin’s Creed will change the landscape. He said in the interview, as quoted by Gamespot, “it’s going to be a milestone movie.”
According to Aymar, the movie is not going to be an adaptation. Rather, a video game studio creative actually worked with a movie studio to guide them in ensuring that the film stays true to the video game’s core. This was the first time such a move was done.
Movie’s stars are not gamers
If you watched the trailers of the movie, you’ll be surprised at how convincing Fassbender and the rest of the stars are in their roles. The truth is, they are not even gamers. But just wanted to give justice to the movie every gamer has been talking about.
Their dedication to the movie was so intact that the stars even did their own stunts. Or at least, 95% of it. Fassbender said it was easy for him to sign in for Assassin’s Creed, doing it after just one meeting with Ubisoft.
Assassin’s Creed Movie will open to the public on Dec. 21 after an earlier red carpet premiere at NYC.
