Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) will make its film debut in a trilogy of films produced in partnership with Coinbase. Together with the exchange, the creators of BAYC will develop short films featuring the famous bored monkeys.

The first film in the short animated trilogy titled “The Degen Trilogy” will premiere on NFT.NYC in June. In addition, it will be accessible digitally through the Coinbase wallet.

BAYC holders can submit their NFTs for “audition” to be part of the film.

However, NFT owners cannot apply for the BAYC trilogy. That’s because a separate movie series is planned for the BAYC spinoff.

BAYC is the third-largest NFT collection of all time, with $1.7 billion in sales since launching in April 2021. Currently, the minimum price is approximately 111 ETH for one NFT.

Recently, Universal Music started buying NFTs from BAYC to form a virtual band project. Meanwhile, a BAYC-themed restaurant recently opened in Long Beach, California.
