If you are a fan of the Assassin’s Creed video games this this trailer should push all of your buttons. It hits all of the main points. Michael Fassbender, diving off a giant tower, the animus, some stealthy movies, some wall moves and a convoluted plot. All while looking gorgeous. My concern is, how will this trailer play to people who don’t know anything about the game. The movie is coming out December 21st.

Holy crap, I have to do this! Check out the amazing trailer.
