if you’re into video games, it’s highly likely you’ve heard of a game called Assassin’s Creed and then many spawns and sequels the game has. Even if you’re not a fan of video games but know anybody who is, it’s almost just as likely you’ll have heard of Assassin’s Creed too. Therefore, when it was announced that there was going to be an Assassin’s Creed movie based on the original video game, there was a lot of excitement within the gaming world that has since died down a little.
However, new pictures from the set of the film have been leaked which show the lead role, Michael Fassbender who will be playing the main Assassin throughout the story (based on his costume anyway). And Brendan Gleeson apparently playing his father. Hopefully this results in a decent father/son story that either sees Fassbender struggle for his approval or sees Fassbender make his father prouder than anyone ever could.
Anyway, here are the images that have been taken from the set. We see Fassbender in his Assassin’s outfit and we see Gleeson in what seems to be some form of guard’s uniform or official’s uniform. Either way, the costumes look good.
On top of the great looking costumes, the set itself brings back mass nostalgia of the earlier Assassin’s Creed games which had you running around 16th century Spain. Whether we’ll see Fassbender jump into haybales or diving off any extended planks of wood, we’re yet to know. Either way, these leaked images are likely to garner people’s interest and hopefully excite fans of the franchise about the movie.
The film is set to be released on 21, December 2016 which is barely a week after the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Depending on what the film companies think of the film, we may see this date changed to cater for the behemoth that is the Star Wars franchise. It may well appear earlier in 2016, which we’d all love.
Let us know what you think of the leaked images. Do you think it looks any good from the limited pictures we’ve seen so far? Do you have high expectations or is the traditional theme of ‘good games don’t make good movies’ going to stick here too?
