Legendary Actor Anthony Hopkins’ Upcoming Film Will Be an NFT

Legendary actor, director, and producer Anthony Hopkins has revealed that his upcoming movie will be a non-fungible token (NFT) feature film.

A sci-fi thriller starring award-winning British actor Anthony Hopkins is set to become the first feature film to be distributed using non-fungible tokens (NFTs), taking a new route to bypass an initial theatrical release by controlling access via blockchain. 

VUELE, a joint venture of film production company Enderby Entertainment and FinTech platform developer CurrencyWorks, today announced that Hopkins’ upcoming film “Zero Contact” will be the first film released on the company’s NFT viewing platform. .

The first 11 digital prints of Zero Contact, which was filmed and produced in 17 countries virtually during the Covid-19 pandemic, will be auctioned on September 24 through OpenSea, the world’s largest NFT marketplace.

The movie will be accessible on the NFT Fly movie distribution platform, which was established in June by movie producer Enderby Entertainment and blockchain developer CurrencyWorks. Since NFTs are unique and offer proof of ownership, buyers will not only be able to watch the movie on Vuele, but also trade or sell their copy through the platform.

2,500 bundles of the Zero Contact “Exclusive Edition” NFT

There will be 2,500 Zero Contact “Exclusive Edition” NFT packs, which includes the feature film, a making-of report, a signed poster, and three randomly generated character cards. There are 25,000 Zero Contact “Collector’s Edition” NFT packs, which includes both the feature film and the (unsigned) poster.

Vuele’s preliminary launch in September 2021 offered collectors eleven NFT drops through OpenSea, generating more than six-figure revenue, according to the company.

Launched in 2021, Vuele, created by Enderby Entertainment and CurrencyWorks Inc., is the first direct-to-consumer feature film viewing and distribution platform offering feature films and collectible digital entertainment content as NFTs. 

Users will be able to become owners of exclusive limited edition movies and collectible NFT content that they can watch, collect, sell and trade on the Vuele.io platform.

“We are seeing a lot of areas in entertainment exploring uses for NFTs and Blockchain, with Vuele we’re focused on engaging a fan base in a new distribution model, not to compete with the existing model but as an alternative,” said the film’s producer-director Rick Dugdale, co-founder of Vuele and CEO of Enderby Entertainment. 

“This is a new revenue stream similar to the way streaming created one or further back when studios were taking back catalogue titles and creating DVD box sets with bonus features. NFTs offer the consumer that same type of exclusive access and collectibility,” he added.
