Adapting a video game in the form of the movie is basically a movie saying it wants to fail. Many directors have tried and most, if not all have failed. When it was revealed that Assassin’s Creed, an extremely successful video game franchise, was going to be adapted into a movie, it was considered an afterthought. Audiences thought the movie would perform like predecessors: a story that leaves much to be desired, production errors, and actors that don’t quite portray the character as well as they should.
The trailer for the movie came out and while it was criticized for its choice of music, it had fans interested. Micheal Fassbender turned out to be a great choice for the role due to his experience in numerous genres in the film industry. He portrayed the role with poise and had fans wondering if this would be the start of something good for video game movies. The second trailer along with a few TV spots and Assassin’s Creed quickly became one of the most anticipated movies during this holiday season. While the movie is yet to be released, this movie’s success (and potential failure) hinges on the fate of possible sequels. Micheal Fassbender spoke about the possibility of making future movies starring different assassins:
“This is the sort of origin of his story. We have an idea of where he’s going to go over the next two films. We kind of did a three-film arc. We’ll wait and see how people respond to this, but for sure, we have an idea of where he’s going to go next.”
The news comes shortly after it was revealed that the actors signed onto the movie (including Batman vs. Superman actor Jeremy Irons) have signed contracts for a three movie arc. Fans can judge for themselves when the movie releases in theaters everywhere December 21. Do you think the movie should have sequels?
