Michael Fassbender as “Aguilar” in the film adaptation of Assassin’s Creed.
Rather than retell any existing Assassin’s tale from the games, the film has opted to create an entirely new character, Callum Lynch (also portrayed by Fassbender), who relives his ancestor’s 15th Century battle against the Templars in Spain in order to gain the skills he needs to face them in modern day.
It’s not the classic white duds, but the robes are faithful to the game’s style (and pretty fresh in their own right). So, how many days before we see our first Aguilar cosplay?

No, we’re not talking about video games today. But you’ll get over it, because we’re talking about something equally important: Bruce Campbell (and his diamond chin).
If you’re like me, you’re probably experiencing the nerdy whirlwind of San Diego Comic-Con up close and personal… separated by a computer screen, from the comfort of your bedroom....
There is no film, or any piece of media for that matter, more informative to my childhood than Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. In one masterstroke, Spielberg ushered in a new area of special effects and invented the Summer Blockbuster.
Between it and its sequel, the completely underrated Lost World (to hell with all y’all, I love that film to dino-bits), I’ve clocked over a hundred viewings of dino crises. I’ve even amounted to a dozen sitdowns with Jurassic Park III despite it being –as Malcolm would so eloquently put it – one big pile of shit.
I love all things Jurassic Park. I love dinosaurs. I especially love Spielberg’s key storytelling signature in which ordinary people are thrown into an extraordinary situation. That signature may be what makes the Jurassic Park movies so successful, even over Crichton’s source material – though the concept is rooted in a scientific ‘What If,’ Spielberg knew to place a heavier emphasis on the characters rather than the dino-jargon.
So I was Trepidation Rex when it came to another sequel, especially from a relatively untested director. JP3 had me convinced one of the most integral components to a good Jurassic Park film is parking Stevie’s magical beard behind the camera. Jurassic World has softened that opinion.
Game Pitch #486: Spiritual successor to Jaws Unleashed in which you control the Indominous Rex let loose in Jurassic World. You win the game when you eat every other dinosaur in the park, a weekend’s worth of tourists, and, as a bonus, Fat Pratt from Parks & Rec circa Season 1.
I think I just came. I could have probably said something more professional but I like to report the facts.
