Ubisoft and 20th Century Fox have slated the Assassin's Creed film for May 22nd, 2015.
That's memorial day weekend, one of the biggest movie blockbuster dates of the summer, so clearly the filmmakers have a lot of confidence behind the project. The Assassin's Creed film is not only being made in direct conjunction with game developer Ubisoft, but is being produced by Michael Fassbender, who is also set to star.
This will put Assassin's Creed in box-office competition with Marvel's The Avengers 2, set to release just a couple weeks earlier, as well as, potentially, Star Wars Episode VII.
That's some staggering competition to go up against. It's still quite ways away, but how do you guys think Assassin's Creed will fair? I actually really dug 2010's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, another Ubisoft adaptation, so I have high hopes for this one.
