AMC Theatres Plans NFT Promotion To Celebrate Opening Day Of Spider-Man: No Way Home



AMC Theatres has planned a nonfungible token (NFT) promotion to celebrate the opening day of Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: No Way Home at cinemas across the United States.


It has been reported that the company is offering a limited number of up to 86,000 Spider-Man NFTs for members of its “AMC Stubs Premiere & A-List” and “AMC Investor Connect” subscriptions.


However, those who purchase an advance ticket for the December 16 showing of the latest Spider-Man movie will be eligible for the airdrop. The collaboration between Sony Pictures and AMC Entertainment is the first of its kind. More than 100 NFT designs will be available created by Cub Studios, a BAFTA award-winning animation studio.


The report said that the tokens will be redeemable on the WAX platform, a carbon-neutral blockchain running on proof-of-stake consensus. The hotly anticipated movie is the third in the Spider-Man Hero franchise and the sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home, which grossed $1.13 billion globally.


Likewise, renowned British NFT artist Damien Hirst has airdropped 10,000 NFTs to those who have previously purchased artwork from his “The Currency” collection. The giveaway is from the new NFT collection “Great Expectations,” which is a series that contains 10,000 images based on his Certified Lover Boy artwork.


The collection is based on the artwork for the cover of “Certified Lover Boy,” the sixth studio album by Canadian rapper Drake.


Hirst said:

“I tried to create an image that sums up the powerful hope filled love, humor & daring truth in the music of Drake for his album cover and now my hope is that with this free gift you can all share and feel the excitement I feel about NFTS and the digital world.”

Moreover, Dfinity’s Internet Computer Network (ICP) is launching NFT Studio, a 3D and interactive NFT platform that enables creators to design, mint, and stake regular and interactive 3D NFTs. The platform includes a 3D voxel engine and a pixel engine, which allows users to create 3D models that can be converted into NFTs and used in video games.

Lukas Merville, the founder and team lead at NFT Studio, said that 3D creators are often limited on networks, such as Ethereum or Solana, that cannot handle large files sizes, before adding “3D NFTs sounded like fiction — well beyond the current state of blockchain technology. But we have made them possible on-chain thanks to the Internet Computer.”


Thus, there are a number of NFT collections already running on the ICP, such as ICPunks, ICPuppies, and ICKitties.
