You know, I'm actually strangely optimistic about this one. Assassin's Creed strikes me as a video game IP that would really shine in a big screen adaptation.

My optimism is unusual, as I regard most video game movies with aversion - such as the train wreck that is going to be the Mass Effect movie. My opinion regarding that is neatly summed up here.


mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.
