Ready Player One

Ready Player One
Director: Steven Spielberg
Screenwriter: Ernest Cline, Zak Penn
Cast: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Release Date: March 29, 2018

Ready Player One is pure madness. Steven Spielberg‘s latest film is an unrelenting barrage of pop culture references that will leave you broken, battered, and barely alive. It may be narratively thin, but the visuals are just so beautiful you won’t even care what’s going on. And as crazy as it sounds, the film manages to have some nice layers to it.

There is also a great underlying message that almost gets lost in the chaos, but somehow, Spielberg is able to bring it all together and give us one spellbinding feature of nostalgia. Check out my full review of the film below.

Warner Bros. is making yet another big push for their dreamy Steven Spielberg film, Ready Player One. Based on the Ernest Cline novel of the same name, the film centers on Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) who has found the Easter eggs hidden by the late OASIS creator James Donovan Halliday (Mark Rylance). Whoever is in possession of the Easter egg will inherit Halliday’s assets, fortunes, and control over the Oasis. So as you can imagine, everyone who plays in the escapist world wants to get their hands on it.

Now a new “Dreamer” trailer goes further in depth in the story, while also offering fans another glimpse of the upcoming film. Check it out below.

Ready Player One

Ready Player One already promises to be one of the most entertaining films of the year. The Steven Spielberg-directed adaptation of the Ernest Cline novel of the same name features an overwhelming amount of pop culture references that are all woven into a story about digital escapism and a revolution. But for those who may not be familiar with the novel, it’s hard to imagine what a world where “the limits of reality are your own imagination” would look like.

However, the latest trailer gives us another look at that world, while also squeezing in some new footage and a few more pop culture references. Check it out below.

Ready Player One

It’s hard to believe just how many references director Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Ernest Cline‘s Ready Player One made it into the trailers. But the source material has always been chock full of Easter Eggs, so we always knew we would get some sort of goodies. The trailers that have already been revealed teased the idea of a world where gamers can interact with notable vehicles like the Batmobile and the DeLorean from Back to the Future. There are also characters like the Iron Giant, Chung-Li from Street Fighter, the first Gundam, and more.

And now, as the ultimate tribute to all things geek, Warner Bros. has dropped the latest poster for the film that honors the great artist Drew Struzan. And as you might have guessed, it too has plenty of Easter Eggs to look for. Check it out below.

Ready Player One

In the two previously released Ready Player One trailers, you may have noticed several Easter eggs giving nods to films, animes, games, and so much more. And since Steven Spielberg is directing this adaptation of Ernest Cline‘s novel, it is safe to say that the film will have plenty of Easter Eggs from Spielberg films. But this adaptation would not be possible without the book, which draws much of its inspiration from Spielberg films.

Now Warner Bros. has released a brand new featurette that honors Spielberg’s works and acknowledges that the book and its film adaptation would not be at all possible without him. Check it out below.

Ready Player One

Warner Bros. has released the latest trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Ready Player One, Ernest Cline’s novel about a world where humans escape to the virtual world called The Oasis, where all their dreams can be a reality. The first trailer only scratched the surface of the film’s setting and what awaits players when they enter The Oasis. But it showed that it was chock full of pop culture artifacts and icons like The Iron Giant and the DeLorean from Back To The Future.

Now this newest trailer provides a bit more context and the plot. At stake, half a trillion dollars plus full control of the Oasis to the player who can find the creator’s Easter Egg that has been hidden in this vast land. So as you can imagine, players and corporate tycoons will literally jump at the chance to find that Easter egg, and kill anyone who gets in their way. Check out the latest trailer for the film below.

Ready Player One

You can always expect a grand introduction when it comes to the WB panel at SDCC, and this year was no different as the curtains pulled back around the massive stage to reveal the latest films that the studio is currently working on. The studio proudly displayed a sizzle reel of all their films ranging from Lord of the Rings to Gravity to the DCEU.

With the crowd already amped up after waiting 20 plus hours to get in, WB’s panel started off with Steven Spielberg‘s new movie Ready Player One, a film we haven’t seen much of. That changed today with the release of a new trailer. Check it out below.

Art of Atari review

Art of Atari
Hardcover | Kindle
Written by Tim Lapetino
Foreword by Ernest Cline
Afterword by Robert V. Conte
Dynamite Entertainment
Publication Date: October 25, 2016

Art of Atari, a lavish book which covers all things visually historic and celebratory regarding the storied, pioneering video game company, is out in bookstores now, and without question, if there ever was a must-have book for the video game zealot, the pop culture maven, or the scores of gamers in between, this is it.

Absolutely essential from cover to cover and irresistible in its one-two dazzling punch with its presentment of facts and a literal overstuffed yet 100 percent effective usage of photos containing pretty much every single facet of the company’s output that required some sort of art, Art of Atari leaves no stone un-turned, not even the most minute pebble. From the packaging of the boxes for its line of 2600 VCS games to the sides and front of its successful and now almost legendary line of arcade coin-op games, and advertisements that stretched from stark simple white background designs with a spectrum of colorful game boxes to the most rebel rousing and sensory lifting art of the highest caliber, it’s all showcased this hardcover tome, and then some.
