Official Press Release
Coinciding with the highly anticipated action movie release of Marvel's Punisher: War Zone, New Era Cap Co., Inc., the leading headwear designer and manufacturer, will launch its Punisher cap series at four simultaneous events in North America. The events will happen at New Era's four flagship stores - Atlanta, Buffalo, New York and Toronto - on December 4, 2008, one day prior to the movie being released in theaters.
The launch events are for fans who want to be the first to purchase one of the limited edition Punisher caps. Upon arrival at the stores, each consumer will receive a raffle ticket, no purchase necessary, that will enter them into drawings for a pair of passes to the Punisher: War Zone movie in their market. The drawings will happen every 30 minutes with the first happening at 7:30 p.m. At 9:00 p.m., before the event concludes, one Grand Prize winner will be selected and will receive 4 movie tickets, a $50 gift card to New Era and other various prizes. There will also be a celebrity DJ at on-site each store.
Ripped from Marvel's action-filled pages and inspired by the new movie, The Punisher 59FIFTY caps evoke all of the qualities of Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher's, character. Cap designs will feature the classic The Punisher Skull logo, nemesis Jigsaw and The Punisher himself in a variety of colors and fabrics, either wool or satin. The Punisher caps will be available exclusively at New Era Flagship stores in North America as well as online at www.neweracap.com for approximately $35.
