KERNEL gives first look at Michael Fassbender’s weapons and hoodie for Assassin’s Creed film

8_Premiere

Return to the Animus, as the war between Assassins and Templars continues on the big screen in the first Assassin’s Creed film from Ubisoft Motion Pictures and 20th Century Fox. The movie stars Michael Fassbender, who plays the role of Aguilar de Nerha, a 15th century Spanish Assassin, and his present-day descendant Callum Lynch, a descendant of the secret Assassins society.

While the movie won’t be released until December 21st, Kernel has partnered up with Fox, Ubisoft, New Regency, and product creators including TriForce and McFarlane Toys, whose contributions traditionally wouldn’t be surfaced until much later. We get our first look at a few key elements from the film including the hoodie and gauntlet worn by Callum Lynch/Aguila de Nerha, and a 1:1 replica of the 15th-century crossbow used in the movie.

To satisfy fans’ intense interest in their favorite entertainment franchises and characters, Kernel worked directly with studios, filmmakers and distributors to give visibility to the entire creative process, from script to screen.  The Santa Monica-based company has redefined fan engagement with offers such as movie ticket pre-orders, access to exclusive digital content, and customized VIP-experiences.

“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!’” said Kernel co-founder Andy Martinez.

Kernel will offer a selection of collectible items from the upcoming Assassin’s Creed films including the a t-shirt, which includes a movie ticket, a digital copy of the script and behind-the-scenes extras for $25, an official Assassin’s Creed Hoodie for $100, or even a Assassin’s Creed: Aguilar Premier Scale Statue from Triforce for $500.
