    Wait, forget about Assassin's Creed, how was "Darth Vader" not already taken by 2012?

    There were no spaces allowed for 12 years.

    And I hope the movie has a full frontal.

    He'd make a better Templar.

    What was the best movie based on a video game?

    Prince of Persia?

    Probably, and that was pretty shocking. I don't hold out much hope for this. Not sure it will translate to a movie well. But who knows, I'll reserve judgement.

    I'd prefer it, if just for the sake of this movie, they'd actually ditch the whole Animus/Desmond/present time bullcrap and just focus on one protagonist within one time period. Those things have been nothing but annoying distractions throughout the series.

    I don't know, Fassbender was in some big movies recently. He is probably picky about the script.

    No way. The framing narrative is what makes Assassin's Creed special.

    Well, that and the way they use history to tell a story. And their ability to replicate a historical setting. And Ezio, the one truly compelling protagonist of the series.

    Isn't the frame tale basically just the plot of the movie Source Code?

    No. Not to mention Source Code came out years afterward.

    I wish I could agree, but truth be told, everytime the game took me out of the Animus to have Desmond moments, I sincerely couldn't wait to do whatever the hell needed to be done or seen to go back to the matters at hand - namely, enjoy the story and gameplay in the ancient historical setting. As for the Animus...you know, I can suspend disbelief at many a piece of SF hi-tech. But for reason I just can't buy the Animus. It just seems extremely outlandish and too out there, especially since the things don't seem to have any Piece of Eden embedded in them that could explain their capabilities.

    It would be interesting of they used the movie to tell a new chapter in the tale and timeline, instead of recreating AC1,2 etc.

    Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Prince of Persia are a few examples of movies abandoning the games theyre based on...and MK is probably b the best. PoP should have stuck to the SoT story
