Happy bloomin’ Christmas, the UK, you won’t be getting to see Assassin’s Creed this year after all.

The video game adaptation, which is teasing us via quite good trailers, an excellent cast and a quality director into thinking it might actually be genuinely good, has shifted its release date back to January 6, 2017 in the UK.

Americans, however, will get to see it on December 21.

The Light Between the Oceans is set to screen in competition in this year’s Venice Film Festival, which will run from August 31 to September 10.

The Venice Film Festival, the world’s oldest major film event, laid out the plans for its 73rd edition on Thursday, with a host of major names among the 55 features due to descend upon the historic Italian city next month.

Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals is among the biggest titles set to screen in competition, with the LA-set thriller’s stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams expected to attend. The film will compete alongside Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi Arrivals, giving  Adams double duties on the red carpet, plus Emir Kusturica’s On the Milky Road and Terence Malick’s Cate Blanchett-fronted documentary Voyage of Time. Audiences will also get to see the film that brought Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander together, Derek Cianfrance’s The Light Between Oceans, and also assess Natalie Portman’s turn as Jackie Onassis in Pablo Lorraine’s biopic Jackie.

The unlikely trio of Jason Momoa, Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves may drop by the Venice Lido for the premiere of The Bad Batch, Ana Lily Amirpour’s follow up to her critically-acclaimed debut A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and described as “a post-apocalyptic cannibal love story set in a Texas wasteland.” Also in the running for the Golden Lion is Martin Koolhoven’s Brimstone, starring Dakota Fanning, Kit Harington and Guy Pearce. As he previously been announced, the festival will open with Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, which will also compete.

Out of competition, the festival will close with Antoine Fuqua’s all-star The Magnificent Seven remake. Mel Gibson’s WWII drama Hacksaw Ridge will also screen, as will Philippe Falardeau’s The Bleeder, starring Liev Schrieber, Naomi Watts and Elisabeth Moss. Another actress likely to have repeat red carpet appearances is Portman, who stars alongside Lily-Rose Depp in Rebecca Zlotowski’s Planetarium, being given a special out-of-competition screening.
