The theatre chain AMC and Sony Pictures are offering NFT’s as a present for early buyers of tickets for the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” movie premiere. These tickets (and the opportunity to reclaim the gift NFTs) will only be available for users of AMC’s different subscriptions in its app (AMC Stubs A-List, Premiere, or Investor Connect). The NFTs will be issued on top of the Wax blockchain, and only 86,000 NFT’s will be available.
‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Gets the NFT Treatment
AMC has partnered with Sony to offer NFTs to the buyers of tickets for the premiere of “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” The announcement was made via AMC’s portal, which specified the ticket sale started yesterday for the December 16 premiere. The company will only issue 86,000 NFTs to AMC’s perks program subscribers (AMC Stubs A-List, Premiere, or Investor Connect), and users of the app will be able to retrieve them when assisting to the function after scanning a code.
This is the first time that AMC stepped into the NFT realm using a renowned franchise such as Marvel’s Spider-Man to do it. AMC may use this as a test pilot to get moviegoers back into theatres after an inactive season because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Adam Aron is Chairman of AMC’s Board of Directors and CEO.
AMC Theatres guests and our AMC Entertainment shareholders have been calling for AMC to get into the world of NFTs, and we couldn’t imagine a more perfect way to start doing so than with our good friends at Sony Pictures.

AMC is promoting these Spider-Man NFTs as “Eco Friendly,” this means that the chain in which they are issued is energy efficient. NFTs are issued using the Wax blockchain. It claims it is completely carbon-neutral. Wax, an NFT-focused blockchain, makes it easier for brands and platforms launch products on the Wax network.
Already, the platform is partnering with well-known brands. It claims that it processes more than 15,000,000 transactions each day and uses less energy and money than competitors. Cub Studio was responsible for the artistic design of NFT’s collection. This animation studio has been recognized with several awards. The studio will design more than 100 models to appear on the NFT artwork.
