    assasins creed: you kill people sounds like a great family movie it has no plot you could make a better movie out of how to plant vegetables

    you have quite obviously never payed assassins creed... theplot is extremely in depth
  • Assassin4life - July 17, 2012 10:21 p.m.

    If you played the game you would know that the killing is for a purpose and there's actually a secret war that has been going on for centuries. But you obviously haven't.

    I wouldn't think of Giamatti as the best choice Da Vinci, I would think (because of his somewhat more playful nature, and being able to look the role slightly better) Robert Downey Jr. would do a good job. I could see Christoph Waltz doing a great Warren Vidic (we've seen his great portrayal of a villainous character in Inglourious Basterds, which is another well known movie with Fassbender in a supporting role), or even Daniel Day-Lewis who is an astonishingly good actor. It's sad but Heath Ledger would've been the best Cesare, though he could still be done justice by someone like Javier Bardem, or Benicio del Toro.Christian Bale I believe could pull a good Machiavelli.Al Mualim could easily be played by Christopher Plummer, or Christopher Lee (probably Lee with that resounding voice of his). For Subject 16 I could see Sean Penn or Leo di Caprio filling the role (and doubling as Darim since the two do look very alike to one another). That's all I can think of at the moment, but I'll try to think of some more roles that could be well filled!

    From the moment I started playing Assassin's Creed I thought Desmond looked like Zachary Quinto, so that could be a good casting decision. And hey, she's already the model for her, why not bring Kristen Bell back to play Lucy/a Lucy substitute?

    Assassins creed: the movie has everything to do it right, lets hope it does well. The only other game i can think right now that might offer some competition is uncharted, the game is basically a movie and has a lot of potencial. I want them to compete so they get a lot of effort into the movies

    Get your own studio? Well, it worked for Marvel...
  • Viron - July 10, 2012 9:05 a.m.

    If they really tried to make a Smash Bros. film, I think I might throw myself out of a flying plane and just hope that the sweet embrace with the ground would come sooner.

    Ubisoft creating there own movie division is a great idea, It's worked wonders for Marvel and made warner aka DC finally take its own film adaptations seriously. As far as a film adaptation of Assessins creed goes. It think it would be best if they didn't touch anything in the games as far as desmond and co go. I'd personally love to see something stand alone about another user of the animus. It means that it'll give the film makers free regin to tell there own story but have it still fit in with the whole mythos of the series. The best thing about the prince of persia move was that it didn't attempt a straight adaption of the games it took bits from all of them and blended it together, If you rthink of it as just a prince of persia film its great, The probelm was that by subtitling it sands of time lots of people instantly assumed it was a straight adaptation.

    Silent Hill was okay, but I still think that the second Resident Evil film was better than that. But yeah the bar still would not be very high. It’s not like they at trying to take down The Dark Knight or It’s a Wonderful Life. I think it would be better to turn some of the current AAA titles into series instead of movies. Think about it, how would you ever fit the plot/story from games like Mass Effect, Skyrim, or Fallout into the standard 90-120 min movie. It would take an hour or more just to cover the start of Mass Effect 3.

    I'm so glad to know that Ubisoft was so protective on the idea of making AC The Movie. I'm a big fan and don't wanna lose my faith just because some stupid movie. And glad to know Fassbender would star as Desmond Miles. Just wait for another 2 years then. And please, don't let some stupid sentimental love story ruin this movie.
  • V4shL - July 10, 2012 2:32 a.m.

    I wouldn't mind if the movie presents a new ancestor for Desmond, maybe that way it'll be a better movie and it won't affect the games directly.

    #9 - Paul WS Anderson isn't directing it (I hope). Seriously, what the fuck did you do to Resident Evil? Stop putting your wife in everything. It's quite nice knowing that the company behind the games is also behind the films. Let's hope it is really good and inspires other game companies to follow suit and stop handing their franchises over to Hollywood. As in the same Hollywood which continues to make Kevin James and Rob Schneider movies. In one of the slides it mentions a Zelda movie. Personally I'd hate to see Zelda as a movie. There's no way that even a 3 hour film could capture the huge journey, arduous dungeons and epic story that you go through as a player.

    "Best game movie to date" isn't exactly hard to accomplish.
  • Lionred79 - July 9, 2012 10:52 p.m.

    I think Paul Giamatti would be a great choice! Also think John malkovich should play the bad guy from brotherhood
  • archnite - July 10, 2012 9:03 p.m.

    The animus is the door on the 7th and half floor! Mind Blown, into John Malkovich's mind.
  • Balaska - July 9, 2012 10:51 p.m.

    Enslaved movie please. That is all.
  • Manchub - July 9, 2012 10:05 p.m.

    While a lot of talk has been made about the casting and what not. I took it upon myself to write an article discussing who I believe would be a good pick for directing. Thus, my 6 Possible Ideas for Directors-

    Assassins Creed has a deep plot? What are you comparing it to? Pong? Mario? The games plot is overly cheesy and very weak. It's about as deep as a puddle of water. So I wouldn't exactly try to pretend that's movie material. The only point I can see that's relevant is "The bar isn't set very high." Simpy put, all video game movies have sucked terribly. Although movies like Advent Children and Resident Evil: Degeneration have been very good, but they are not live action films. The only thing this movie has going for it is that they want to do it indie style so no large corporate bullcrap.
  • Redeater - July 9, 2012 9:44 p.m.

    Videogame movies suck because they have to be dumbed down for your average viewer or they will not make money. Film companies are first and foremost in the business to make money. They aren't going to risk making a deep movie that your average Jersey Shore fan won't like/understand. Besides.......Transformers has made billions at the box office. Mario Galaxy has a deeper plot than Transformers.
