The shot comes from Azaizia Aymar, who is the head of content for the entire Assassin's Creed franchise. He would have been on set for the shoot to ensure that the world building and mythology ties into the games and canon which has been established over the last few years.

In addition to Fassbender, the film is something of a reunion, with the lead reteaming with his Macbeth director Justin Kurzel, the Australian filmmaker who also helmed Snowtown. Macbeth alum Marion Cotillard is also in the cast, alongside Brendan Gleeson, Michael K Williams, Jeremy Irons and Ariane Labed.

The film tells a unique story which is about Fassbender's Callum Lynch (got to love the Irish name) who ends up in the body of his Spanish ancestor Aguilar in the 15th Century. There he learns how to kill things real good.

Assassin's Creed is in cinemas in December 2016.
