Games to movies: Not proven winners

The other two films have not been so lucky in China, which boasts nearly 41,000 screens-the most in the world.

Even with Michael Fassbender's Chinese tour, Assassin's Creed has raked in just 160 million yuan. It is now being shown on less than 0.4 percent of Chinese screens.

The French game publisher Ubisoft's first such game-adapted movie has no chance to rewrite its fate.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is seen as a historic release for game fans as it is the first time that China officially shows a big-screen production about the magical land of Lucis. The first Final Fantasy game was published in 1987.

Takeshi Nozue, the director, says cutting-edge technology was used to make the film. Up to 800 members from top visual-effects studios joined the one-year postproduction process.
