20th Century Fox has delayed a number of its major releases, including its adaptation of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed and the Independence Day sequel.

Assassin's Creed had been set to debut on June 19, 2015 in the US, but will now roll into theatres on August 7 - a date which is currently unchallenged.

Prometheus and X-Men star Michael Fassbender will both star in and co-produce the movie.

Fox also put a new date on its Independence Day sequel, pushing it back from July 3, 2015 to July 1, 2016 - almost 20 years after the first film wowed cinema goers.
