The trend of video games being turned into movies is not a new feat. Successful adaptations however are, and only a few come to mind, such as "Tomb Raider" and the "Resident Evil" franchises.

We've heard news of the "Assassin's Creed" project for some time now, where the incredible Michael Fassbender is producing as well as starring. A release date has now been locked, and the film will hit AMC Theatres everywhere on May 22, 2015.

This is big news indeed, because releasing over Memorial Day Weekend is a highly coveted release date. That eludes to the fact that the studio and Fassbender are very confident in their upcoming project. The very rich and in-depth game and narrative, does lend itself really well to a film version.

It has not been confirmed yet but speculation leads us to believe Fassbender will be portraying the main character in the game franchise, Desmond Miles. He could also be playing 12th century assassin Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad, or Italian playboy Ezio Auditore da Firenze. You had me at Fassbender, so I'm personally good with whoever he plays.

Are you looking forward to "Assassin's Creed"? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
