Video game movies suck, there’s just no two ways about it. Assassin’s Creed has got a chance to be good. The games are dope, Michael Fassbender is dope, and the effects look pretty sweet. But, at the end of the day, this will probably suck too.

Assassin’s Creed is an upcoming action-adventure film based on the video game franchise of the same name. It is directed by Justin Kurzel, written by Michael Lesslie, Adam Cooper, and Bill Collage, and stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael K. Williams.

The film will be set in the same universe as the video games but features an original story that expands on the series’ mythology. Filming began in late August 2015 and lasted until January 2016. Assassin’s Creed is scheduled to be released on December 21, 2016, in the United States.
