May’s been a big month for movies. There’s a new “Planet of the Apes”, George Miller’s “Furiosa” is bringing us back to 2015’s incredible “Fury Road”, and Marvel fans have been hyped for “Deadpool & Wolverine”. If you like fourth wall breaks and millennial irony, this is the one to watch. One piece of promotion for this film involves small claw machines installed at certain theaters. The prizes inside have picked up a ton of attention online, and now resellers are flipping them for much more than their tickets cost. Let’s check it out.

Deadpool and Wolverine Claw Machines

There are all kinds of ways to market a movie. Billboards and TV spots, sure, but what about the sillier stuff? With Marvel movies consistently slumping for several years now, producers have to get creative to get people into their seats.

“Deadpool & Wolverine” is an upcoming R-rated Marvel movie slated for a July release. If you’ve been to the theater recently you’ve probably already seen the profanity-laden and tepidly homoerotic “PSA” asking people to turn their phones off.

Excited for two more hours of that? Plenty of people already are. To sweeten the deal, Marvel’s marketing team has spun a pretty clever way to promote the film.

Deadpool & Wolverine Claw Machine Locations

“Deadpool & Wolverine” themed claw machines have been installed in select theaters. To play, you’ll need a special token that can be redeemed by preordering a ticket.

There is no list of locations for “Deadpool & Wolverine” claw machines. We have seen confirmation that they have been installed in AMC and Cinemark locations, so this is not exclusive to any particular company.
