‘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.

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.

The Assassin’s Creed movie is based on the video game series of the same name. Development for the film kicked off in late 2011, with Fassbender joining the project in July 2012. The Assassin’s Creed movie release date is currently set for December 16, 2016.

The film is being directed by Justin Kurzel (Macbeth, 2015), and stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Michael K/ Williams, Ariane Labed, Jeremy Irons, and Brendan Gleeson.
