AMC Theatres announced today that they will be partnering with VeVe on the first licensed Jurassic Park NFTs, as promotion for their upcoming Jurassic World Dominion film.
However, there are some important caveats if you want to score an NFT!
First off, you need to purchase tickets specifically for the Jurassic Double Feature on June 9th. This is a 5 hour-long double-feature with the original Jurassic Park movie and the new Jurassic World film. The link that AMC included in their tweet is wrong!
Secondly, you must be signed into AMC when you purchase the ticket. You don’t need a premium membership, you can just have a free AMC Stubs Insider account, but you must be signed in to qualify for the NFT.
You will know if you qualified for the NFT when you receive your confirmation email, and at the bottom there will be a note about the Jurassic World NFT:
The AMC website says that you will receive 1 NFT per ticket. However, past NFT giveways have only provided 1 NFT per order, so it may make sense to order each ticket separately just to be safe.
Past NFT giveaways from AMC have also required that people actually attend the movie and get their ticket scanned. The terms for the Jurassic World drop don’t mention this as a requirement, but it may be a good idea to get your tickets scanned anyway just in case.
Once you’ve purchased your tickets, AMC will email you a VeVe promo code on June 16, 2022 which can be redeemed in the app for the collectible. The code must be redeemed by July 16, 2022.
There will be three different designs that will be assigned at random, so it may make sense to buy multiple tickets so you can collect them all!
It’s hard to know how much these collectibles will be worth without knowing what is dropping or how many are dropping, but here are my predictions:
I wasn’t able to find any showtimes in Europe, so this promotion may be for US only.
There are 593 AMC theaters in the US.
There appears to only be one showing per theater for the double feature, so 593 showings total.
There are around 80 seats per theater in the theaters I looked at. Let’s assume 100 just to be safe.
So assuming every seat is filled that would be a total of around 60,000 editions for this collectible, which is comprable to typical drops from Marvel or Disney.
However, assume that only half the people who buy tickets are logged in. That brings the total down to 30,000.
And assume that only about a tenth of those people actually download VeVe and redeem the promo code. That’s around 3,000 editions total for the collectible. That’s decently rare, about the typical edition size for an ultra rare collectible.
However, if it’s something cool like actual dinosaurs (imagine a t-rex, stegosaurus, or triceratops in 3D!) I could see these going for 300 gems or more.
Either way, I don’t expect these to go for below retail, with tickets selling for $22 a piece (or as low as $15 in some states). If you factor in the cost of the movie, these NFTs are practially free.
It’s exciting to see VeVe doing more big partnerships like this! AMC is a big name in the NFT/meme stock space, so I expect this could bring in a lot of new users to VeVe.
The last Spider-Man NFTs that AMC offered were so popular that their website crashed from people trying to order tickets, and those NFTs were pretty lame.
I don’t expect these collectibles to go below retail, so I’ve personally bought a dozen tickets already, and might pick up some more. June 9th is my birthday, so I can practically rent out a theater and enjoy the show with some friends.
