We built a custom SMS bot for Lionsgate Entertainment and its agency to promote John Wick: Chapter 2. The bot invited fans to become a part of the John Wick world by recruiting them through text message. This was truly a bot for superfans to participate in the assassin’s journey: 1 in 5 of them submitted a selfie for the mission and received a custom response based on the attire worn in the photo as identified through image recognition technology.
Working with film assets, Massively crafted a chat experience to replicate the movie’s assertive and mysterious theme. By engaging with the bot, fans provided their phone numbers so that Massively could send them reminders about the premiere and where to purchase tickets, turning engagement into box office dollars.
