Again with the buggy graphics rendering issue, really?

Okay, not really. Check out the actual picture below. Michael Fassbender's set to play both Lynch and Aguilar in the up and coming Assassin's Creed movie. He's pictured alongside his co-star Ariane Labed. We're all crossing our fingers and wishing upon falling stars that this doesn't end up the next 'Prince of Persia' catastrophe.

Fassbender who's also producing this film, employed his Macbeth filmmaker Kurzel, to take charge on the video game adaptation. This move adds great depth to the behind-the-scenes team. Even better, Kurzel brought along Adam Arkapow, who served as the DP on Macbeth and the first season of a little show called True Detective. It's no great mystery that we've a lot to be excited about here. The film features a knockout supporting cast, which includes Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael K. Williams; it's slated to premiere December 21st, 2016.

This trailer finally gives us a long, clear look at what to expect from Duncan Jones' Warcraft, scheduled for release on June 10, 2016.

It's been years since many of us have picked up a Warcraft game, and I don't know about you, but I could definitely head back to Azeroth for this.

You can add Borderlands to the list of video game properties that will be turned into movies that you maybe will see, but really don't need.

Lionsgate announced Aug. 28 that they would develop the games series into a 'tentpole' movie, would means they probably have a few ideas for all the ways they want to fool with the loot-based first person shooter.

According to Variety:



"Part of our strategy in entering the game space under Peter Levin has been to source new brands with built-in audiences that will translate into great films and television shows," said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. "The 'Borderlands' games don't pull any punches, and we'll make the movie with the same in-your-face attitude that has made the series a blockbuster mega-franchise."

Friday's announcement comes less than three months before Lionsgate opens its fourth and final film in its highly successful "Hunger Games" franchise, which has grossed $2.3 billion at the worldwide box office. The studio's Summit label generated $3.3 billion from its five-film "Twilight Saga." And it has grossed more than $550 million from the first two films in its four-film "Divergent Series."


You can put this one up there with The Last of Us and Assassin's Creed as movies we're mildly interested in, but never asked for.
