So after a long long time with this movie being in the air for a good few years then slowly being put together to start production a poster with the title and release date has been posted!
So the title (could be a working title) is “Assassin’s Creed: The Movie” which is a title I would have expected besides just “Assassin’s Creed” because it is the first movie, but people might hear “Assassin’s Creed” and mistake it for the game? Not 100% why they added the “The Movie” part because personally it makes me think of Pokémon… The Movie. Haha
I am not knocking this in any way, so let’s just be clear on that… I have the Assassin’s Creed Logo tattooed on me, I am a huge fan. I even started something I wish I had time for and could pick back up and make better that was Assassin’s Creed related and was used for a school project. Assassin’s Creed Lore is the project and it was going to be like a mini database of key facts/events. I however didn’t need a full working site, and was more for experimenting things, I just chose this as my topic. Wish I could have gotten further before it got put on the back burner.
Moving on.. The release date is set for December 21, 2016 – 4 years after the world has ended (12/21/12), not part of the movie plot. Hopefully this date doesn’t get pushed and we see it released as planned :D.
Not sure which characters we will see in this film, but me and my friend (His favourite character in the series is Ezio) got into a discussion about who we think could probably do a kick ass job as Ezio and I can’t remember if it was me who mentioned it, but we both agreed on Oded Fehr. I think he has the look and he has done enough that I could see him pulling it off quite well. A bit of make up cause of age (but even still it’s not like he looks old) and he could pull off a young Ezio. Here is a photo my friend shared just now as I mentioned his name (writing this post haha).
Needless to say, I am excited for this film and was happy to see a poster has been released! What better way to fill up a poster then with the iconic eagle. It is the main animal of the game, watching over you, anywhere you see one you know there is a viewpoint and some hay to jump in. It is also part of the name that allows you to see things in the world that normal humans would not see. I am talking about Eagle Vision. So the Eagle is iconic to the series and this is a good way to show that off 😀
What do you think of the poster? Are you excited for this movie? Would you like to see Oded Fehr as Ezio?
Cause spawning from this and our discussion we decided to throw up a page on Facebook, that will hopefully get some attention and maybe allow for something cool like this to happen. Here is the Facebook page that was literally just created. So like it and share it. Let’s get the word out there!
