Michael Fassbender's time-travelling video game adaptation will set sail later than expected!
20th Century Fox have today announced the delays of two of their upcoming film projects. Firstly, their science-fiction video game adaptation Assassin's Creed will shift from its June 2015 release date to a later window in the Summer of Film 2015. On top of that, their much-anticipated thriller sequel Independence Day 2 will depart 2015's roster altogether.
It's safe to say that Independence Day 2's setback is hardly the greatest surprise of 2013. The follow-up project has been laden with production hitches in the past, and Fox clearly need further time to refine what could be a sensational blockbuster that lands a sublime box office. Assassin's Creed's issues weren't quite so simple to predict, although for the most part that The Fantastic Four was yesterday delayed to a June 19th, 2015 release is probably the major cause of the alteration.
Assassin's Creed performs a leap of faith into cinemas worldwide on August 7th, 2015 and Independence Day 2 launches on July 1st, 2016.
