Assassin’s Creed is set to be released next year, and not this December as originally thought.

But fear not, because 20th Century Fox, according to Games, have said that the Michael Fassbender-led film will arrive in cinemas on January 1, 2017, just weeks after the rest of the world.

Directed by Justin Kurzel and also starring Marion Cotillard, Ariane Labed, Michael K. Williams, Jeremy Irons, and Brendan Gleeson, Assassin’s Creed opens in US theatres on December 21, 2016.

A synopsis of the film reads: “Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain.

“Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
