Something to look forward to: Historically, movies and shows based on books and video games haven’t been fantastic. These days, things are different: Game of Thrones (mostly), Altered Carbon, and Netflix’s The Witcher are all great pieces of media that stand on their own feet, with or without the context of their source material. With this in mind, a bit of cautious optimism may be in order for Netflix’s latest announcement: a live-action adaptation of Assassin’s Creed is in the works.
