THE FANTASTIC FOUR Release Date Delayed; ASSASSIN'S CREED Now In Limbo

The Fantastic Four has now been delayed, though Josh Trank's new take on the iconic Marvel characters hasn't suffered anywhere near as badly as Assassin's Creed. The big screen adaptation of the Ubisoft franchise starring Michael Fassbender no longer has a release date at all!


It's not a major delay, but the wait for Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four has now got a little longer as Fox have shifted its release date from June 19th, 2015 to August 7th, 2015. The reason for the change isn't quite clear, though as filming has already come to an end, it's likely more of a strategic choice than for reshoots or post-production issues. A six week delay is a shame, but nowhere near as disappointing as the fact that Assassin's Creed is now undated. Michael Fassbender is attached to star in the ambitious project which will bring the popular video game series to the big screen. Ubisoft are also hoping to turn Splinter Cell into a movie starring Tom Hardy, and while that all seems fine (it's at a different studio anyway), this isn't particularly good news for Assassin's Creed.
