We won't have a new Assassin's Creed game this year, but what we will have is a movie. And now we know just what it'll look like when it hits theaters this December 21st, courtesy of a trailer that just debuted on the late-night talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live. It looks appropriately stabby and features tons of the series' hallmark moments: a massive cityscape shot from above, an abducted protagonist by way of Michael Fassbender, eagles flying around spires, a leap of faith off of a very tall building, and, of course lots of folks in hoods looking ready to kill assassinate folks during the Spanish Inquisition.

Kanye West's "I Am a God" sets the tone for the clip pretty nicely, too. Based on this early look, it'll be a shame if it doesn't turn out better than gaming juggernaut Ubisoft's other game-to-movie adaptation, 2010's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
