New ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Featurette Shows Off Awesome Stunts

Video game based movies is a genre that Hollywood hasn’t been able to crack yet. These movies opens up to possibilities of new characters, story lines (some of which the public is already aware of) and finally new franchises (yay!).

After Warcraft wasn’t able to be the film everyone was hoping for, all eyes are now on Assassin’s Creed. The film is just a couple of months away from release ad hopes are high with a new trailer that was released recently. 20th Century Fox has released a new featurette for the film in which the cast and crew talk about the magnificent stunts which we’ll be seeing. For the longest time, Fassbender has stressing on the fact that how the filmmakers are treating the material and making the film with practical effects as much as possible. We know it’s serious talk especially after seeing that 125 foot jump sequence. Also you get to preview some awesome parkour sequences, a staple of the  game in all its glory.
