The Assassin's Creed Movie Recreated A Real Leap Of Faith


Practical effects in films are making a sweeping comeback as moviegoers find a malaise with CGI action and the crew on the new Assassin's Creed film dialed their stuntwork up to 11, to try and pay proper homage to the video game franchise the movie is based on's signature move, the main character leaping from insanely tall structures and landing safely in a bale of hay. Stuntman Damien Walters wowed even hardened stunt coordinators with his death-defying 125 foot leap into an 10 foot by 10 foot air bag to make sure the stunt showed up on film looking visceral and real.
