The trailer of the first crypto currency-centric movie from Hollywood has been released.

The John Stalberg Jr.-directed movie, titled "Crypto - Fear is the ultimate currency", will be screened in select theaters on April 12.

The initial response to the film was encouraging, as the trailer was viewed more than 312,000 times in 24 hours.

Crypto is a cyber crime thriller about a Wall Street banker who gets caught up in a global money-laundering conspiracy involving the Russian mafia.

The film is based on an original story by Jeffrey Ingber. Carlyle Eubank and David Frigerio are its scriptwriters.

The story revolves around a young anti-money laundering agent tasked with investigating a web of corruption and fraud in his remote New York hometown, where his father and brother are struggling to maintain their family farm in a changing economic landscape.

Before he knows, the agent finds himself deep inside a dangerous underworld with a mysterious art dealer, a corrupt accountant doing the bidding of ruthless clients, and a crypto enthusiast.

Beau Knapp plays the role of the agent. The star-studded cast also includes Alexis Bledel, known for her performance in the hit television show Gilmore Girls, Kurt Russell, Luke Hemsworth, Jeremie Harris and Vincent Kartheiser.

Crypto is produced by Yale Productions in association with BondIt Media Capital and Dynasty Pictures (II), according to IMDB (Internet Movie Database).

This is not the first film that has digital currency as the central subject. The Vietnamese movie, "Bitcoin Heist", which was released in 2016, featured a team of elite hackers planning a crypto-heist.
