Anthony Hopkin, the Oscar winner for Best Actor, has announced the release of his next film, Zero Contact, through the new non-fungible token (NFT) distribution and viewing platform, Vuele. Zero Contact will be released on Vuele in a series of NFT drops beginning September 24th. Following his Oscar win last spring, Anthony Hopkins’ next film is said to be “the world’s first feature film NFT event.”
Zero Contact, a film produced by Enderby Entertainment studio, has gained additional traction due to its production in 17 different countries entirely virtually during the 2020 global pandemic. The plot of Zero Contact revolves around five disciples of Finley Hart, the late founder and tech titan played by Anthony Hopkins.
These characters are scattered across the globe, attempting to avert a “globe-killing disaster event.” In the film, Anthony Hopkins’ late character directs his disciples to prevent his creation, a time machine, from wreaking havoc on the face of the earth. Furthermore, the thriller intensifies as a mysterious man begins to hunt down members of this group as they devise a plan to save Earth.
Hollywood joins the NFT bandwagon.
While Zero Contact may be the first feature film NFT event, NFTs are not a new concept in Hollywood. Marvel Entertainment recently announced the release of its latest NFT series, which includes tokenized Spiderman and Captain America collectibles. During the ‘Marvel Month’ celebration in August, Marvel Entertainment released the first Marvel Mightys collectibles in collaboration with VeVe.
Rob Weiss, the producer of Entourage, has confirmed that he will be producing and directing the first of its kind crypto tv show, ‘Hold On for Dear Life.’ The focus of the series will be on the current craze of NFTs. The plot of ‘Hold On for Dear Life’ revolves around Mel, a young tech founder. Mel creates a non-fungible token (NFT) in memory of her missing best friend, Aveer. Mel and her underdog friends are shown fighting against the centralized system in order to bring about the unavoidable change in the market and people’s lifestyles with decentralized crypto powers.
