20th Century Fox’s Assassin’s Creed film is back on track for a theatrical release. The bad news: you’re going to have to wait until the end of next year to see it. Fox said that the film, based on Ubisoft’s popular video games and starring Michael Fassbender, will arrive in theaters December 21st, 2016. The film was originally scheduled for August 7th this year, but was pushed back late last year.
Fox dated its new X-Men spinoff Gambit — which is set for a release Oct. 7th, 2016 — while announcing that Channing Tatum will be playing card-shooting mutant Remy LeBeau. His character first appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but was played by Canadian actor Taylor Kitsch.
Back to superheroes for a second though, it’s kind of encouraging that Fantastic Four 2remains on the schedule. Considering the first one opens in just a few months and we haven’t seen a single image, it suggests they’re happy enough with what they’ve seen that they expect there to be interest in a sequel.
The Apes 3 date is right in between the weeks the first two movies opened, so that makes sense too.
