Cryptocurrency: The Movie? It's Officially Happeningby

Many among us will already be keen to say that critics and moviegoers will look back on this decade and see just how many movies are based on current affairs, world events and even crazes – living in the moment really does seem to be selling box office tickets right now, though many hoped this trend would have died with the colossal critical failure that was The Emoji Movie (our Worst Movie of 2017). Anyone with even a passing interest in world affairs will already be aware that cryptocurrency has been a major talking point over the past decade, and, as such, Hollywood looks set to be tapping into a Bitcoin blockbuster of epic proportions. Unlike The Emoji Movie, however, it won’t be an animated affair – though there are some seriously big names involved.

The movie in question is entitled Crypto and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, big names such as Kurt Russell, Beau Knapp, Luke Hemsworth and Alexis Bledel are all on board to star in a thriller of sorts surrounding the murkier side of online currency. You read correct – but stranger things have been brought to the big screen, and, invariably, they’ve worked! Sources state that ‘dangerous underworld’ dealings are in full play, with Knapp’s financial crime buster getting deeper and deeper into a shady world where non-physical money is king. The movie’s director, John Stalberg Jr, has referred to the picture as ‘timely’ – and while it certainly is picking up on the rise and rise of cryptocurrency, it will remain to be seen quite how relevant – or accurate – the movie is upon its release. As independent and impartial as we are – we will of course reserve judgment and deliver the full review to you as and when it hits UK shores!

Crypto appears to be starting production and boasts a well-known cast – meaning that it could well be a sleeper hit that takes critics and audiences by surprise. As and when it is released, it may be worth taking a look back at this very article to see if things turned out the way we expected them to – but in all honesty, a movie landscape always needs a thriller or two, and whether it’s big and daft or cutting and precise, we’re sure it’ll provide some form of escapism in the months to come. Stick with us for more news as we have it!
