The first trailer for the Assassin’s Creed movie, based on Ubisoft’s hit game franchise, premiered on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night, and it’s full of good stuff: shadowy killers, historical Spanish settings and a dark reimagining of the Animus VR machine.

It also features Michael Fassbender asking all the important questions about how he found himself donning a cloak and training to become the greatest assassin of all time.

Thankfully, that’s balanced with several quick cuts of beautifully choreographed combat and rooftop chases. It’s certainly enough to whet the appetite of any fan of the game series.

Assassin’s Creed comes to theaters on December 21.
