‘Holy sh*t the Assassin’s Creed trailer was crazy’ – Twitter reacts

The very first trailer for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night.

The film stars Michael Fassbender as an assassin-cum-hoodie knifing baddies during the Spanish Inquisition, so it’s no surprise that the trailer is jam-packed with sweeping cityscapes, rooftop parkour, and a healthy helping of murder too.

And here’s the official poster for the movie:

That said, many weren’t too happy about the soundtrack. In fairness, there probably wasn’t an abundance of hip-hop in 15th Century Spain.
