Assassin’s Creed Movie Features Actual 125ft Leap of Faith

Fox has revealed a behind-the-scenes clip of a rather impressive stunt with the leap of faith in the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie.

20th Century Fox released a behind-the scenes video earlier this week briefly showing off the work that went into the most impressive stunt we’ve yet seen out of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film.

Damien Walters, the stunt double who fills in for some scenes in place of principal actor Michael Fassbender, is shown off in the clip performing an actual jump from a height of 125 feet onto an air cushion in order to replicate the famous “leap of faith” from the Assassin’s Creed game series. 

This stunt is, according to the same clip, one of the highest heights that stuntman has freefallen from in over 35 years. It may not be a wheelbarrow full of hay, but even with a big inflatable air cushion below him, this stunt it still pretty impressive.
