VUELE, the world’s first direct-to-consumer, full-length feature film NFT viewing and distribution platform, announced it will debut Anthony Hopkins’ new movie, ZERO CONTACT, exclusively to consumers as an NFT.
NFTs use the same type of technology that underpins cryptocurrencies to verify the authenticity of other digital assets like artwork, recordings, movies, and a wide range of virtual collectibles.

VUELE™ members will have the opportunity to purchase and watch feature-length films like ZERO CONTACT and other highly sought-after content, including behind-the-scenes and never-before-seen footage, bonus features, exclusive Q&As, #filmobilia, and much more.
ZERO CONTACT stars Academy Award®-Winner Anthony Hopkins (The Father) and features acclaimed actors Aleks Paunovic, Veronica Ferres, and Chris Brochu among its ensemble cast.
Cameron Chell, co-head of VUELE, states, “For VUELE’s very first movie to be featuring such a high-profile star is a major endorsement for what we see as the next frontier for Hollywood and how it will premiere feature-length films and merchandise collectibles surrounding the films produced. This is just the beginning for our platform and NFT capabilities which will enable our partners to explore new opportunities and set new standards of how movies will be consumed by fans and collectors. VUELE is perfectly poised to transform the direct-to-consumer entertainment distribution channel.”
VUELE opens the doors to filmmakers with an entirely new platform to reach consumers and develop new business models in terms of “releasing” a film.
The opportunities are endless, and as consumers become more familiar with the new platform, it is estimated that more direct-to-NFT consumer distribution will become commonplace.
VUELEs™ will be available to be watched, collected, and shared exclusively on the VUELE™ platform. VUELE™ members will enjoy access to exclusive, limited-edition film and film content – a truly unique experience for movie fans and digital collectors alike!
“This project was truly a one-of-a-kind experience,” said Rick Dugdale, VUELE co-head. “We had to innovate at every step of the way, shooting in 17 countries around the world during a global pandemic. It only makes sense for a film like this to continue its ground-breaking trajectory by revolutionizing the way Hollywood films are premiered, viewed, and shared utilizing blockchain technology.”
