This is the continuation of the adventures of the professional assassin Aguilar/Lynch. The production of the movie is well under way. In the topic below, you will find all known information on the movie to date.
Creators and Production
Rumors about the release of the full-length version of the film are constantly sounded, starting in 2011, but in fact, there was no official announcement from the future makers. This was due to the fact that between the creators of Ubisoft games and movie studio Sony had some reticence, related to the request of the representative of the range gaming entertainment to control everything that happens on the set.
Ubisoft wanted to know everything from the selection of the actors, ending with the release of the tape in the world. Sony was against such a proposal. That is why game developers got the idea to make a film independently. Apparently, the decision proved to be a failure but only by joint efforts of the companies, they were able to release the first part of “Assassin’s Creed”. The world premiere was in December 2016.
Michael Fassbender has become not only a producer but main protagonist of the film. Armchair of director took Justin Kurzel, previously known for the films “Macbeth” and “Snowtown”. Together with Fassbender on the set starred French actress Marion Cotillard who previously could be seen in the film “Inception” with Leonardo DiCaprio in the main role.
Michael Fassbender: “We are treated to the original source with incredible respect. However, we also want to bring something new in this world. We’re shooting a movie, but do not do a video game… At a meeting with the producers of the game, I was struck by the depth of these games and their central idea that memory is laid in the DNA, passes through the generations.”
In spring 2016, the company Catchplay, which is one of the sponsors of the film, has officially announced that the filmmakers are going to shoot a new part.
According to some reports, it became known that the creators are planning to turn the film into a full movie franchise, as they are fully confident in the success of the film. They explain their belief that any player who has ever played the game, want to see this movie.
When is Assassin’s Creed 2 2018 coming to theaters?
The movie will appear on the screen at the end of 2018.
The first part did not live up to the expectation
This year came out 4film adaptations of the video game: “Ratchet & Clank”, “Warcraft”, “Angry Birds”, and “Assassin’s Creed”.
Assassin’s Creed. The bottom line is — the miracle did not happen. The chance was given to this genre, and for the most part, the result is disappointing. Most likely, the new film adaptations of video games with a big budget and a good cast we will not see for a long time.
Ironically, the best-accepted adaptation of the game was “Angry Birds”. Initially, no one did know how to film it — it plot consisted of a dozen pictures. Yes, “Angry Birds”, a primitive hit without a plot, characters and distinct history, whose film adaptation seemed most absurd but it surpassed most. It earned more money and less negative reviews than the other three tapes.
Perhaps, this happened precisely because there was no story — it could be invented from scratch, not limiting creators, especially by the fact that “the game was different”. However, it is unclear why it did not save the «Credo”, because of the creators of the film, too, decided to start from scratch and do not follow the plot of a particular part of the game, to take a new country, a new assassin.
The creators of “Angry Birds” had the sense and imagination to turn 5 birds from hundred pixels and their ridiculous crusade in the name of revenge into something more or less meaningful (though still, of course, is far from ideal), connected and oddly enough even to convey the game’s spirit. The creators of the “Credo” could not do that.
Maybe the continuation will be better.
The movie Assassin’s Creed 2 trailer is not available but it will come soon.
The first part describes the fact that modern science has invented a new technology that is capable of releasing the genetic memory of the person.
The main hero of the film is Callum Lynch. He participated in the experiment in which he began to experience an adventure that happened to his ancestor Aguilar in Spain in the 15th century.
After he received the supernatural powers and incredible knowledge, the main character will meet with the Knights of the Temple in our time and he has to fight them.
Assassin’s Creed 2 2018 movie release date is scheduled for December 2018, in the USA.
