Finally the first scenes of the video game adaptation of Assassin's Creed have seen the light of day after being aired on chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The film features Michael Fassbender as both Callum Lynch and Aguilar - relatives separated by time but connected by sci-fi technology called The Animus. Having recently shown his thespian mastery in both Macbeth and Steve Jobs, Fassbender is clearly after a more physical character as the trailer sees him leaping between rooftops and performing backward somersaults. Not a bad addition to the CV.

The game series has amassed a cult following so fans are keen to see what director Justin Kurzel (Macbeth) will do with their beloved world which is set both in the near future and 14th Century Spain.

Fassbender spoke to Entertainment Weekly about taking up playing the game to immerse himself in the character:

"I've played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character," he said. "We're striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate, very specific, and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We're really trying to capitalise and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We're working hard to make this something special."

With Kanye West lending his humbly titled I Am God for the soundtrack, we're expecting Herculean stuff when the film is released on 21st December.
