Zero Contact, which stars Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins, created movie history by being the first full-length film to exclusively make its debut as an NFT.
Lionsgate paid $1.2 million plus a portion of future earnings for the US theatrical rights and release of the movie.
Sir Anthony Hopkins, a two-time Oscar winner, is actively engaged in the NFT industry.
On October 14, the legendary British actor "The Eternal Collection" debuted his first NFT art collection, which sold out in less than ten minutes on OpenSea.
Two planned sequels to ZERO CONTACT are scheduled to be released in the upcoming years, according to Scott Gallagher, president of MetaWorks Platforms.
Sir Anthony Hopkins is a well-known NFT aficionado, and OpenSea now has numerous of his NFT avatars.
