The partnership offers the audiences an opportunity to grasp Hyundai Motor’s human-centered mobility vision via innovative vehicles and technologies.
‘Spider-Man™: No Way Home’, the first project made from the partnership between two companies, is the third movie of the ‘Spider-Man’ series starring Tom Holland as the main actor. ‘Spider-Man’ series is one of the world’s most popular movies, which recorded over 355.5 million views in its latest trailer. This is a record of most views among the all-time movie trailers.
In ‘Spider-Man™: No Way Home’, Hyundai Motor’s IONIQ 5 and TUCSON will be screened in the major vehicle action scenes. IONIQ 5 and TUCSON will maximize the dramatic tension in the movie and captivate the audience’s attention.
In addition to the product-placement scheme, Hyundai Motor will pursue diverse marketing activities by using its intellectual property rights associated with ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’. Among them is the long-form commercial, ‘Only Way Home’, which is directed by Jon Watts, the director of all three of the most recent Spider-Man films, and features Tom Holland as Spider-Man and his best friend Ned Leeds played by Jacob Batalon.
In this TV spot, Spider-Man is bent on clearing his name and comes out of hiding, hitching a 300-mile ride to New York with Ned in the all-electric IONIQ 5. The two characters cruise their way through an open country inside the sunlight-reflecting, futuristic-looking IONIQ 5, exchanging banter along the way. A 30-second broadcast version will air as part of high-visibility television programs in the US, Europe, China, Russia and other global markets through January 2022.
In addition, a virtual campaign of ‘Spider-Man’ provided a unique customer experience through the recently launched ‘Hyundai Mobility Adventure’ in the Metaverse platform of Roblox.
Following ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, the company will organize diverse marketing initiatives related to the upcoming films ‘Uncharted’, due to premiere in February 2022, and the sequel to the critically acclaimed, Academy Award-winning animated film, ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’, due to premiere in October 2022.
