Assassin's Creed Movie Has Pre-Order Packages
$40 gets you a ticket, t-shirt, watch, and script.
Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed film isn't out until December, but eager fans can now engage in the familiar act of pre-ordering tickets.
The packages available for pre-order are detailed and sold on the Kernel website, with prices starting at $15. In classic Ubisoft fashion, different tiers feature different merchandise. Packages on offer include a copy of the movie's script, t-shirt, hoodie, and more. Some packages are only available for a limited time, as indicated by the countdown timer listed below them.
According to the FAQ on the site, purchasers will not be able to pick their seats in the theatre at this stage as the movie studio has not yet decided which theatres will show the Assassin's Creed film. Items will be shipped on a "rolling basis as they become available." The most expensive pre-order tier sits at $1,200 and features a Spanish crossbow, which is a 1:1 replica of the one used in the film. This package also includes a movie ticket, digital copy of the script, and "behind-the-scenes" extras.
Assassin's Creed stars Michael Fassbender, who plays two roles: Callum Lynch and his 15th century Spanish assassin ancestor Aguilar. The film is directed by Justin Kurzel, who directed the critically acclaimed 2015 film Macbeth. Marion Cotillard, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Jeremy Irons are also appearing in the film.
The movie will also include references to the games, as the guillotine gun from Assassin's Creed Unity and items from Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China will also show up in the background of some scenes.
Unlike the games, however, the bulk of the action in Assassin's Creed takes place in the present day, while the 15th Century Spain sequences make up only 35 percent of the film. It remains to be seen what other historical eras the two sequels might go to or if the present/past ratio would stay the same.
Just last week 20th Century Fox released the first trailer for the film. Watch the Assassin's Creed movie's first trailer here.
