Anthony Hopkins’ new thriller will be released as an NFT – how to get it

Anthony Hopkins sent shivers down our spines after inserting our Silence of the Lambs VHS tapes into our VCRs. Nearly three decades later, Hopkins will continue to haunt us with a new industry-altering technology: NFTs (non-fungible tokens).

Hopkins stars in a new thriller called “Zero Contact.” It will debut exclusively for consumers as a non-fungible token on Vuelve, the world’s leading direct-to-consumer viewing and distribution platform for NFT-based feature films.

Non-fungible tokens are an artist’s dream, especially in the internet age where copyright infringement is rampant. NFTs use blockchain technology, which underpins the cryptocurrency field to facilitate secure transactions, to package digital artifacts (e.g. music, GIFs, artwork, etc.) with valuable data about the property.

For example, if you purchased a non-fungible token from Eminem, it would be associated with a digital record that would authenticate the source of the NFT. If you wanted to sell the NFT, you would have proof that it is indeed a genuine Slim Shady digital token, thanks to blockchain technology. Both parties are happy; Eminem can sell his NFT-based albums to offset piracy losses, and fans are thrilled to own authentic digital collectibles from their favorite artist.

Likewise, the world of NFT is a breath of fresh air for filmmakers eager to find a new outlet to release their visual masterpieces in a way that benefits both the film industry and consumers. .
