While the movie isn’t out until Christmas, fans have been eager for some looks at anything from the big-screen ASSASSIN’S CREED adventure that 20th Century Fox will bring to theaters. Aside from a few official stills that were released back in January, news has been scarce, sans rumblings that the expected sequel is already in-development. As the trailer release looms at some point in the near future, beginning today, March 9th, KERNEL is affording Assassin’s Creed fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in the highly anticipated movie release with exclusive film merchandise, one-of-a-kind experiences, revealing behind-the-scene sneak peeks and more. Passionate fans of the franchise can now get a first-look of key elements from the film, including the hoodie and gauntlet worn by Callum Lynch/Aguilar (played by Michael Fassbender), limited-edition collectibles, apparel and accessories, the film script, advanced movie tickets, tickets to San Diego Comic Con and more, put together in packages ranging from $15-$1200. As news breaks this morning, THE ROCK FATHER Magazine has an early look at many of these items below…
“We’ve curated bundles at all levels but the most important item included in each purchase is the ticket. That’s the shared piece that binds and connects all of us as ASSASSIN’S CREED fans since the day we first plugged into the Animus and thought to ourselves, ‘wow, this would make a great movie!’” – Andy Martinez, Co-Founder, KERNEL
