    Rumor: Daniel Espinosa To Direct 'Assassin's Creed' Starring Michael Fassbender

    "Easy Money" director Daniel Espinosa has always made it clear that he doesn't have to direct. “I have a very easy life and a beautiful wife,” he told PopMatters in the run up to "Safe House." “I don’t need anything. I do movies because they give me something. I can walk away any time, because I am ...

How about: "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," "Tomorrowland," "Jurassic World," "Inside Out," "Ted 2," "Terminator 5," "Independence D...

    Ridley Scott's Moses Movie 'Exodus' Opens Dec 12th 2014, Fassbender's 'Assassin's Creed' On May 22nd 2015

    We're closing on the mid-way point to the year, with several of 2013's biggest movies already in theaters, but as fast as films hit theaters, the studios nab future release dates sometimes years away, hoping to stake their claim on key territory. And last night, the release calendar just got three n...

    New Regency Pick Up 'Assassin's Creed' Movie Produced By And Starring Michael Fassbender

    Even as this week's "Silent Hill: Revelations" creeps into theaters, the search for a good -- or at least watchable -- video game movie continues.

    Discuss: Can A Good Movie Ever Be Made From A Video Game?

    Michael Fassbender To Star In & Produce Film Version Of 'Assassin's Creed' Video Game

    The history of the video game movie has not been a glorious one.

    Video game to film adaptations haven't always gone over well, and arguably, there has only been one flat-out successful franchise created so far in the "Resident Evil" series of the movies. Yes, there were the "Tomb Raider" movies but after the second entry made less than the first, it faded from view (though it is getting a reboot), and let's not talk about the saga behind getting "Halo" to the big screen which now finds one of the most popular videogames of all time stuck in development hell. The true test of the potential "Silent Hill" franchise will come with the release of "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" next year, while "Hitman 2" seems to...
