This is not the first time Anthony Hopkins has joined the non-fungible token boom, as, earlier in the years he released the film “Zero Contact” on the platform. Fly. It offered 2500 collectibles called “Exclusive Edition” where they included the feature film, a featurette on how it was made, a signed poster and three randomly customized stickers.
Another 25,000 NFTs called “Collector’s Edition” which includes both the feature film and the unsigned poster.
Vuele is the first direct-to-user feature film viewing and distribution platform. Holders of NFTs will be able to become owners of exclusive limited edition films and non-fungible token content that can be viewed, collected, sold and traded on the same platform.
The feature film was produced in 17 countries entirely virtually during the pandemic. It tells the story of five characters from around the world connected only by their idolatry for the late technological genius Finley Hart (played by Anthony Hopkins). They are forced to work together to shut down Hart’s most secret invention, a time machine that seeks to solve humanity’s problems and resolve the end of life on Earth.
Finally, Orange Comet has also collaborated with NFTs collections for TV shows such as The Walking Dead, wrestling sports, NFL (American soccer) and one of the characters created by Stan Lee, the legendary creator of Marvel comics, called “Chakra, the Invincible”. The curiosity is that it was released in honor of Stan Lee’s 99th birthday with limited NFTs collectibles in relation to one of his first international superheroes.
