Major Hollywood movies based on video games seldom turn out well, but I have hope for the upcoming Assassin's Creed film based on the Ubisoft game of the same name. Featuring new characters but based on franchise lore, the Creed film sends its modern day protagonist back to the days of the Spanish Inquisition. I certainly wasn't expecting that. The first trailer for the film gives us a look at all kinds of classic Creed elements such as the Animus, lots of climbing & parkour, hooded robes, and the iconic leap of faith. I'm optimistically excited! Assassin's Creed opens in theaters in December 2016. I really hope there's a scene where the Assassin kills a civilian and desynchronizes from the simulation as a result. "Assassins did not kill civilians," the Animus attendant would say. "Try it again."
