Video game movie adaptations are often discussed, but are very rarely given concrete release dates but Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed is apparently getting the movie treatment and it's now been given a release date in Australia: June 18, 2015.
Obviously that's very far in the future, especially when it comes to the movie business, but it's interesting that a date has been provided at all.
Ubisoft confirmed a May 2015 date for the US, meaning that, if all goes to plan, the movie will make its debut here in Australia roughly a month later. It is worth noting, however, that 2015 is a long away. A local representative from Twentieth Century Fox confirmed the date was genuine, but that it may change in the future, which is completely understandable.
I'm just surprised that the movie is actually being made. Not because I think it's a terrible idea -- I don't -- but because I am simply so used to hearing about game to movie adaptations and then having them dissolve into the cinematic equivalent of vapourware. It looks as though this thing is actually being made.
