Still one week away from Star Wars
Say what you will about recent Star Wars films, but the franchise is still a juggernaut in just about every facet of the market. People are hopeful about the new wave of Disney movies, and that includes the spinoff releasing on December 16, 2016, written by Gary Whitta and directed by Gareth Edwards.
20th Century Fox and New Regency have decided to pit the Assassin’s Creed movie against said spinoff on December 21. Not a smart move. At least we know that the film still exists and that they are entering the production phase, filming “soon” according to Ubisoft, but I’m not sure how it will fare at the box office — maybe we won’t get a yearly release like the games.
