Assassin’s Creed quickly made a name in the video game industry with its spectacular stunts and scenic action dynamics, but we’re yet to see how this aspect of the franchise will translate in its adaptation for screen.
While the movie will certainly make heavy use of CGI to re-create some of the breathtaking acrobatics you could observe in the game, director Justin Kurzel has decided that computer gimmicks simply won’t cut it when it comes to the notorious ‘Leap of Faith’.
Assasin’s Creed’s signature ‘Leap of Faith’ is a dangerous acrobatic stunt that involves jumping off incredible heights while still landing completely unharmed.
In a new behind the scenes video, seasoned stuntman Damien Walters performs the legendary ‘Leap of Faith’ from the monstrous 125 feet, marking the highest jump a human being has made on screen in over 35 years.
You can watch the ludicrous jump below:
