'Wreck-It Ralph' & 'Creed' Sequels Headed Toward Big Thanksgiving Debuts
As the month rolls on, the yearly box office will receive a generous boost from this long, holiday weekend. The five-day Thanksgiving frame will see Disney debut the animated sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet, MGM will come out punching with Creed II and Lionsgate's release of Robin Hood will hope to steal some of the leftover loot. Additionally, carryover films such as Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and The Grinch will add their own contributions to the bottom line. At the top of the box office, look for Disney Animation's Ralph Breaks the Internet to give the studio the Thanksgiving crown for the third year in a row.

The Wizarding World has continued to expand with the installation of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and this time, J.K. Rowling introduces us to Newt Scamander's brave but rule-abiding Auror brother Theseus. He's a bit of a proto-Percy Weasley type with a sinewy build, head of curly hair, and (mostly) fierce devotion to his job at the Ministry of Magic. Alongside new big names in the magical universe such as Zoë Kravitz and Jude Law, English actor Callum Turner brings the stern wizard to life in the Harry Potter prequel.

EA's work on the Star Wars series has taken yet another creative hit as Motive Studios founder Jade Raymond has left the company.

Assassin's Creed Now has 33% More Players on Steam Than Last Year

  • Cinelinx
Assassin's Creed is here to stay and will be more successful as the years come. 

If you listen to the 2nd Opinion Podcast, you already know I am a huge Assassin's Creed fan. In the last 6 years we have seen the series go from really good to really bad, but it now seems to finally be balancing out. GitHyp has released a report stating there are 33% more players on Steam, playing AC: Odyssey then there was playing Origins last year! In total there are 62,000 on Steam compared to last years 41,000, that is a huge jump in player counts!

This and the fact that the game has been pretty much praised across the industry is really good news for the franchise. I have not had the chance to play the game as of yet, but when I do all I can say is good by world! That timeframe or location should Ubisoft explore next?

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Review: So Much to Do, So Much to See

Assassin's Creed Odyssey takes the series to Ancient Greece. Is this new entry worth the trip? Here's our review!

Games

Release Date: October 5, 2018

Platform: PS4 (reviewed), Xbo, PC

Developer: Ubisoft Quebec

Publisher: Ubisoft

Genre: Action-Adventure

It’s easy to take a franchise like Assassin’s Creed for granted when a new title drops just about annually, but the long-running series continues to thrive over ten years after its debut. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey transports players to ancient Greece, a rich milieu that developer Ubisoft Quebec harnesses to inspire new gameplay features that significantly change the classic AC formula. The game world is vast and varied, and while stealth and parkour-style traversal remain the focus of the experience, combat and exploration receive major enhancements, making this one of the most well-rounded entries in the franchise’s history.

The game begins by asking you to choose your hero, either Kassandra or Alexios.

Ubisoft Details Season Pass and Free Content for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey

  • Cinelinx
Ubisoft is already planning for life after Assassin's Creed: Odyssey's release date! They've changed their Season Pass layout so you'll never stop creating your Odyssey. Details within...

If there is one thing Ubisoft has over a lot of other developers, it's forethought. When they create a game, often times they consider the question, "What's next?". That question tends to lead them to building, crafting, and innovating Post-launch content gamers can enjoy for life of the game. They did it with For Honor, Mario + Rabbids, and even the most recent Assassin's Creed game, Origins. Now, the post-launch party comes to Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, and as a mythology buff with Greek blood coursing through my veins, it's got me very excited.

To recap, Ubisoft will be releasing two Dlc Story Arcs that will encompass 3 episodes, each, in six week increments with the first releasing December 2018, starting with Legacy of the First Blade.

Robbie To Ruin

by Jason Adams

Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm not as great as our host Nathaniel at keeping up with every single festival) but with a little digging it doesn't look like Mary, Queen of Scots is premiering at any of the Fall festivals? Perhaps that is why I've seen some people side-eying its awards chances lately? Personally I'm always down for dramatic wig acting, and with Saoirse & Margot under them wigs I'm hooked already (and that before you even get to James McArdle's Beard).

Margot is why we're here today though - she's just signed up for a new role and it's one that's got my interest right out of the gate. She is going to star opposite my beloved Matthias Schoenaerts in Ruin, the new film from Snowtown and Macbeth (and yes okay Assassin's Creed) director Justin Kurtzel. It's a World War II thriller - it actually sounds

Our Most Anticipated Fall 2018 Video Games

  • Cinelinx
While this year’s Summer gaming drought wasn’t as stark as year’s past, there’s no denying the ridiculous amount of hype-inducing games coming out this Fall. As we did with movies last week, our staff is taking a look at the video games they’re most excited to play as the leaves begin to change colors.

Summer, traditionally, is a great time to catch up on your backlog of games. With most studios holding off on major releases (aside from a few) during the Summer, most gamers know this time period to be relatively slower. That’s about to change. Next month alone is bringing a crazy amount of Aaa games, and it won’t slow down through the Holiday season.

The gamers on our team have been tasked with picking the five games they’re most excited to play this Fall:

Assassin's Creed: 10 Cities We Need To See Next (And 10 That Should Be Avoided)

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed was a breakout success and one of the most admired releases of 2007— a year that offered some stiff competition in the form of games like Bungie’s Halo 3 and Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare.

As a shockingly historic take on the open-world sandbox genre that the publisher would years later come to dominate, the game was followed up in 2009 with the predictably titled Assassin’s Creed II. As the first of the now-beloved Ezio trilogy, the series would skyrocket in popularity and peak years later with the release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag in 2013.

Since then, it seems that greed and repetition have eaten away at the franchise, and recent releases have been met with hearty amounts of skepticism and pessimism.

With new installments releasing annually (and even more frequently when the series’ spin-off titles are included), public opinion dropped so significantly that
