Kevin Smith’s latest release, Killroy Was Here, is going to be his most unconventional. The Clerks director, known for his multi-media projects across comics, podcasts, books, movies, live events, pop-ups, and more, is now making history by releasing his horror anthology as the first feature film to debut as an NFT. With the crypto craze still strong, Smith is taking advantage of unveiling his movie in a way no other filmmaker has done before. A throwback to the horror movies of the 1980s, the Killroy Was Here NFT will come with exclusive content from the film, behind-the-scenes footage, and a commentary track for those lucky enough to snag this limited edition run.
In advance of the film’s debut as an NFT release, I got the chance to talk with the indie filmmaker about the movie and his decision to release it using this new platform. We also discussed the fan reaction to this choice and how the internet has altered the filmmaking process forever. We also talked about the impending release of Clerks 3 and what may be in store for the long-gestating Twilight of the Mallrats. Check out my full interview with Kevin Smith in the embed above.
Killroy Was Here is set for release via Legendao with a limited run of 5,555 NFTs before receiving a traditional release at a future date.
