Hidden Blades, Parkour and Kanye West in New Assassin’s Creed Movie Trailer

on May 12, 2016 5:41 AM

20th Century Fox released the first trailer for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie today. The trailer shows a universe pretty much on par with the games, with the end even showing off a Leap of Faith dive.

The blurb for the trailer adds:

“Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.”

Joining Fassbender are Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Khalid Abdalla and Michael K. Williams.

Looks promising, right? Not entirely sure what a Kanye West song was doing in a trailer about a 15th century Assassin though. Assassin’s Creed will be coming out in cinemas December 21 for the US and December 26 for the UK.

You can check out the trailer down below.

Bad at video games, decent at writing.
