Michael Fassbender is an actor. A very good actor. The first time you saw him was probably in Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds. Or maybe X-Men: First Class, when he played Young Magneto. And if you're like me, you've watched as he's gone on to show up in pretty much everything. Shame (Sex-addled Fassbender). Prometheus (Robot Fassbender). Frank (Weird Fassbender). Steve Jobs (Turtlenecked Fassbender). And here's the thing about him: even when the movie is not so great, Fassbender almost always is.
Assassin's Creed was a game in 2007. In it, players took on the role of a regular guy that gets plugged into a future machine so he can kill people in the past. People really liked killing people in the past, so more Assassin's Creed games were made. Somebody in Hollywood heard the words "future machine" and "killing people," and now an Assassin's Creed movie is coming out next year.

Will this break Fassbender's streak? Does it mean the movie could be good? I don't know. I just really want a drink.
