The film’s theatrical release was plagued by an overcrowded box-office back in December. “Assassin’s Creed” opened against Universal’s winter-smash “Sing,” Sony’s drama “Passengers,” and the FOX comedy “Why Him?”. It also didn’t help that “Rogue One: A Star Wars” story was still dominating the box-office at the time, having just released the week before. Despite the box-office obstacles, “Assassin’s Creed” did make over $54M domestically, the film made over $211M worldwide. Sci-fi fans can catch Fassbender in his next high-profile sci-fi film this May, the actor will be starring in “Alien Covenant“. Ridley Scott is directing the new installment, working off a screenplay written by John Logan. The film also stars James Franco and Katherine Waterston.
“Assassin’s Creed” is already available for pre-order on sites like Amazon.com. You can choose between the Blu-ray version, the DVD version, or the fancy 4K version if you prefer. The film is also available in 3D if you have the setup for it.
